I need August 26th to get here ASAP. Summer sucks after the 4th of July anyways. The Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather fight could be one of the biggest nights in sports history. The storylines are endless. You have one man who is probably the best self-promoter in sports in Conor McGregor crossing the lines and boxing one of the best boxers EVER in Floyd Mayweather.
So what does The Notorious do for the first press conference of the fight? The man has a custom suit made with what looks like pinstripes. On further inspection, you can see that the stripes on his suit is just the words “Fuck You” over and over again.
This is why McGregor is the best at what he does. He’s calculated in everything he says and does. Sure he can say it’s all just “motivation” but this was meant for headlines 100% percent. The odds are not in his favor for the actual fight, he knows this. So he’s going to make this as big of a spectacle he can, control what he can.
And when he is in front of a mic, well that’s just the icing on top.
