McGregor says he will change face of boxing by beating Mayweather

  • The best of Mayweather, McGregor world media tour

The undefeated boxing champ is in the middle of a promotional tour ahead of his August fight in Las Vegas with UFC star Conor McGregor. The reason I have started to cover this fight is for the entertainment value, and the ability to show that dividing races is not the goal, but to rather come together to enjoy a matchup of martial arts.

Things didn't slow down in Toronto with Mayweather draping his shoulders in the Irish flag while bodyguards on both sides clashed in NY.

However, just 24 hours later, McGregor got Mayweather back as spectators in the Toronto press-tour joined McGregor in a "F*** the Mayweathers" chant.

I know this sounds like a copout, but it's pretty evenly matched and is really either one's fight to lose. If nothing else having Mayweather and McGregor mix it up, even verbally, would be entertaining to WWE fans. Him making the switch over to boxing, it does make it interesting. "To be honest, I'd be tentative to go to a pub and watch it". People that are doing it for probably the right reasons.

HHH, Mayweather, and McGregor are no strangers to the limelight. Telling everybody what they want to hear but people tend to get let down.

Needless to say, few thought this fight would become a reality. "It takes the sport out of it and turns it into a circus", he continued. "I think Conor's gonna get the job done". The world cares about this fight.

Alsop eventually ended up just behind the curtain alongside the UFC lightweight champion as he was being announced by the MC, capturing a great moment in which McGregor angrily reacts to being called the "former UFC featherweight champion".
