Twitter Reacts To Tonight’s Electric Mayweather/McGregor Press Conference

Twitter reacts to tonight’s electric opening press conference between boxing’s Floyd Mayweather and MMA’s Conor McGregor.

Today marked the first time Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor faced off and though the entire event featured only a limited appearance from both men, there was more than enough in the way of entertaining trash-talk to keep fans happy for the next few hours until they meet again tomorrow night.

It began as a rather flat affair but some well-timed interruptions from the ‘Notorious One’ himself seemed to light something of a fire underneath his unbeaten opponent and from there on out, it was all fireworks.

Some weren’t impressed, however, whether it was due to the spectacle itself or the ridiculous decision to mute McGregor’s mic as Mayweather spoke.

But for the most part, the presser went down an absolute treat and despite both men having their moments, a clear victor wasn’t unanimously agreed upon. One man who caught quite a bit of flak, however, was the former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub, whose outright pro-McGregor stance had many scratching their heads in confusion.

It was brief but it was very entertaining at its best and with three more conferences yet to see this week, you can be sure that this already tantalising rivalry will only continue to blossom as we edge closer to August 26th.
