McGregor press conference stream from Brooklyn

The Irishman menacingly chewed his gum in an effort to intimidate his opponent but Mayweather remained stone-faced and never once took his gaze off of McGregor.

But in NY, where a "Hamilton" seat can cost you a rent check, there's still a deal to be found - even in the fight game. Hell no! You f*cking weasel!

They meet again on Thursday night in NY but McGregor's coach was honest enough to admit he does not think Mayweather will be spooked by the Irishman's sledging.

It's the cleanest four-letter word uttered by the Irish UFC star McGregor and the undefeated boxer Mayweather during a foul-mouthed promotional tour that stopped Thursday at the Barclays Center. I'm getting fight cheques and promoter cheques.

And it won't be just the two fighters involved who are making "Fook you" money, as made obvious by the chairs filled with men in suits, and one in a revolving collection of tee shirts, who sit and smile throughout each press stop.

"What the f**k is he wearing", said McGregor.

Coverage of the NY press conference will begin at 5:30 p.m. ET. "F*ck the Mayweathers", yelled McGregor along with the majority of fans in Toronto.

When that didn't happen - coupled with the microphone that failed him mid-press conference - McGregor seemed irritated, which is not his typical setting where it's his opponents who are frustrated, fumbling over words and almost frothing at the mouth with anger. They said I had no chance, they said I'm in over my head.

Mayweather and McGregor will face off on August 26th in what very possibly could be the biggest fight in pay-per-view history. I was here three years ago, I was also on a world tour, facing an unconquerable quest, facing the pound-for-pound No 1 fighter on the planet, Jose Aldo. B-ch I do numbers. You line them up and I knock them down like bowling pins.

In the wake of the press conference, one of the most dramatic ever seen in combat sports, Espinoza responded to the tirade which came courtesy of the pissed off Dubliner.

The final press conference will be held at Wembley Arena in London Friday at 2 p.m. ET.

"21 is the number", said Mayweather.

Mayweather fired right back and grabbed an Irish Tricolour from the crowd. "It took me 13 seconds".
