McGregor allegedly got knocked out whilst sparring

Mayweather vs. McGregor, a fight which just a few short months ago seemed like a pipe dream, takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mirror reported that Mayweather and McGregor kicked off their promotional tour in Los Angeles last week and as expected, the two went at each other during the press conference and the traditional face-off.

Again, it's likely all posturing, but it does raise an interesting question about how the August 26 boxing match will conclude.

In 2015, before a matchup with Brazil's Jose Aldo, McGregor said, "What I really want to do is turn his favela into a Reebok sweatshop. I heard they tried Brandon Rios but he knocked him out, so they had to push him away". I'm not saying the fighters are on steroids, I'm saying the method of production and hype is juiced up beyond belief. "I think Conor's gonna get the job done". We're selling the same thing but you don't got the same sales pitch that I got. The fight saw the Unified WBA, WBC, WBO, and The Ring welterweight titles on the line.

"I don't think the boxing world has ever seen this kind of power, this kind of velocity, this type of movement".

Before the face-off Mayweather was more measured in his press conference, nearly at times trying to play the role of underdog ahead of a fight against a man who has never fought a single round of professional boxing.

The unbeaten American maintains that this will be his final fight, while also shrugging off concerns that such a mismatch will harm his legacy. The reason I have started to cover this fight is for the entertainment value, and the ability to show that dividing races is not the goal, but to rather come together to enjoy a matchup of martial arts.
