Floyd Mayweather Jr
In the first half of the 4 cities tour, Floyd Mayweather told 20,000-strong crowd in Los Angeles:
“I don’t care if it’s a ring or it’s an octagon; I will kick ass. I don’t back down from anybody.
“You line them up, and I will knock them down. On August 26, I’m gonna knock this b**** out too.”
“You haven’t knocked anyone out in about 20 years.”
“We talking about from the nineties to now, world champion 18 years, but it is no problem. I’m not the same fighter as I was years ago, but I got enough to beat you.
“You will wave that white flag. You are going out on your face or your back. Which was, do you want to go? All you need to do is show up, and I will do the rest.
“God only made one thing perfect, and that is my boxing record.”
The Irishman was the crowd favorite at the opening press event as he made fun of Mayweather’s IRS troubles – a lack of cash prompted him to file an appeal with the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) regarding overdue taxes – and promised to flatten an aging fighter.
“He’s in a track suit,” McGregor told the crowd of more than 11,000 people. “He can’t even afford a suit anymore.”
“I am honored to be here, to give you this spectacle,” McGregor said. “His little legs, his little core, his little head, I am going to knock him out inside four rounds, mark my words.
“I am a young, confident, happy man that has worked extremely hard for this.
“I am just up here embracing everything. No-one can do anything to me. I am just enjoying myself and having a good time.
