While some were sceptical as to whether or not the second night in a row of press duties between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather could yield any more entertainment, the duo, and in particular McGregor, failed to disappoint for the Toronto crowd.
‘The Notorious’ brought his A game to the Sony Centre stage with the crowd hanging on each and every word the Dubliner said.
With a huge Irish contingent present, the SBG man soaked up the atmosphere as ‘Olé, Olé, Olé’ rang around the venue before delivering arguably one of his greatest ever put downs on an upcoming opponent.
Firstly asking the crowd how good he looked, McGregor went on to address his counterpart’s attire, ahead of delivering a stinging remark about Mayweather’s much-rumoured illiteracy.
Watch the Irishman delivering one of his most succinct punchlines below:
The next stop on the press tour is the Barclays Centre, Brooklyn, New York on Thursday night, where the duo rekindle their rivalry for the second last time on this hasty press tour, which concludes on Friday night in London at the SSE Arena, Wembley.
If Thursday can approach anything nearing Wednesday night’s action we’re in for plenty of entertainment.
