Unbeaten former champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather and UFC star “The Notorious” Conor McGregor went face-to-face for the first time on Tuesday, in a highly anticipated press conference in front of over 11,000 fans at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.
Floyd Mayweather: “Everyone knows I’ve never backed down from anybody. You line them up, and I knock them down like bowling pins. On August 26, I’m knocking Conor out. I am guaranteeing you this. You are going out on your face or on your back. So which way do you want to go?”
Conor McGregor: “He’s got little legs and little hands. I’m going to knock him out inside of four rounds. Mark my words…Floyd will be unconscious inside of four rounds. The power and ferociousness that I have, he’s never experienced it before. I don’t fear him.”
