Both of the fighters began their speeches with a bang. McGregor was introduced by his nickname the “Notorious Conor McGregor.” He even began rapping lines from “Going Back to Cali” in the press conference hosted in Brooklyn, New York. Mayweather brought out his backpack stuffed with cash and began making it rain on McGregor while playing 2 Chainz’s “I Luv Dem Strippers.”
The stripper response comes a day after McGregor called out Mayweather for owning a strip club in Las Vegas in the Toronto press conference.
“Shout-out to the all the stripper b—–es on his payroll,” McGregor said while pointing to Mayweather.
Back in Brooklyn, McGregor also addressed claims that he’s a racist. He possibly referred to the Black boxers in Rocky 3 as “dancing monkeys” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” after the tour’s debut press conference in Los Angeles.
“A lot of media seem to be saying I’m against Black people. That’s absolutely f—ing ridiculous. Did they not know I’m half Black? Yeah. I’m half Black from the belly bottom down,” McGregor said.
He didn’t end his sexual innuendos to prove his innocence from racism there either.
“And just for that, just to show that that’s squashed, here’s a little present for my beautiful Black female fans,” McGregor said before he began dry humping the air.
Mayweather focused on McGregor’s history of quitting to slander his opponent on day three of the press conference tour.
“This b—h didn’t quit once. This b—h didn’t quit twice. But b—h you quit three times?” Mayweather said as DJ started playing “Tapout” by Rich Gang.
The majority of the crowd was against Mayweather and booed him. Chants of “pay your taxes” accompanied the boos and trash talk from the crowd in the Barclays Center.
The final press conference is today in London.
