The official date for the first Conor McGregor/Floyd Mayweather press conference has been released. This will make exciting news for those excited about the pre-fight entertainment. The tour kicks off next week on July 11.
This news will be hugely exciting for fans of the fight. As we know by now, both Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are two of the most entertaining men in the fight industry.
Quick wit and heaps of arrogance can be expected from this upcoming tour. We’ve seen McGregor slay opponents on the mic ever since his arrival to the UFC. Floyd Mayweather’s cockiness also makes for great entertainment.
The tour will officially kick off at the Staples Centre in LA next Tuesday.

Promoted by Mayweather Promotions, this event is complimentary and open to the public for fans to see the first-ever face-to-face meeting between Mayweather and McGregor. This will be a star-studded event that will feature a live performance and special guests. We invite all fans to come out and be a part of history.
For those of us on this side of the pond, the London show is expected to take place on July 15 in Wembley.
It’s also expected that there will be tour dates in between in New York, Toronto and Houston, though official dates are yet to be announced.
It’s not yet known as to whether or not tickets will be complimentary for the events. This is rather worrying as who knows what prices may be charged.
Still, this is sure to be one of McGregor’s most entertaining press tours to date.
