A lot has been made of the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor press tour. Both stars have already delivered many highlight reel verbals. But Floyd Mayweather Sr. has had his own standout moments too.
When McGregor and Mayweather took to the stage for the first night of their press tour, some fans were left slightly disappointed.
Those hoping for a UFC-style press conference were surprised by the different format. This led to an anti-climax amongst some fans on Tuesday night.
However, in the individual press-conference that McGregor took part in afterwards, he was visited by a surprise guest.
Mayweather Sr. arrived on the scene to let the Irishman know what he thought of him. The exchanges between the pair were arguably the highlight of the night.
Mayweather Sr. wasn’t finished there, however. The elder Mayweather appeared on Fox Sports’ show ‘Undisputed’ to give his opinion on the fight, and those hoping for entertainment were not left disappointed.
Firstly, Skip Bayless was on the receiving end. Bayless has been a McGregor supporter from day one in this fight. Of course, Mayweather Sr. disagreed strongly and was quick to put Bayless in his place.
“That’s a joke right there,” he said pointing to the fight poster.
“He’s (Conor Mcgregor) a joke blowing smoke with no hope.”
From here, Mayweather Sr. took it upon himself to display his rap skills. You can take a look for yourself in the video below.
"[Conor McGregor] is a joke blowing smoke with no hope."
