La première conférence de presse sera retransmise en direct sur MMA Déferlante via le lecteur vidéo ci-dessus, ou la page LIVE STREAMING du site, à partir de 23h00 pour les résidents de France métropolitaine.
Pour rappel, ce combat insolite et ô combien médiatique entre les 2 athlètes aura lieu le 26 août au T-Mobile Arena de Las Vegas. Le prix du pay-per-view pour regarder l’événement a également été dévoilé et s’élève à 89,95 dollars (99,95 dollars pour la version HD).
Estimez-vous heureux, Conor McGregor pense que la diffusion du combat aurait méritée d’être à 125 dollars
Mayweather, who holds a 49-0 record, will come out of retirement for the bout. The 40-year-old hung up his gloves in September 2015.
Though he holds a boxing licence from the Nevada State Athletics Commission, this will be McGregor’s first pro boxing match.
The five-division world champion looks in extremely good shape in the video, displaying the lightning quick hand speed that has helped him win every fight he has previously been involved in.
The fight is just over six weeks away, giving the pair plenty of time to knuckle down and prepare for the fight – which is said to be worth more than £500million – after their publicity tour is completed.

But despite his quick hands and status as the overwhelming favourite to win in Vegas, the caption Mayweather posted along with the video acknowledged that he is not the boxer he once was.
Each of the four celebratory events will be OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, fitting for a fight that was made by and for the fans that have demanded it, and allow media availability with each fighter.
Conor: “He’s in a f***in’ track suit. He can’t even afford a suit anymore!!”
Floyd: “I ain’t back down from no f***in’ body. You line ’em up, and I knock ’em down like bowling pins. And August 26th, I’ma knock this bitch out too!!”
Conor: “How’s this suit look? … Got my own line of suits coming out. If you zoom in on the pin stripe, it says ‘f*** you!'”
Floyd: “Let me show you motherf***ers what a $100 million fighter looks like. Still got 100 million, and ain’t even ever touch this s**t!!”
Floyd: “I’m an old man … I’m not the same fighter I was 10 years ago. I’m not the same fighter I was 5 years ago. I’m not the same fighter I was 2 years ago … but I got enough to beat you. And we know Mr. Tapout like to quit!!
The Mayweather vs. McGregor world tour will touch down in four cities in three countries across four days—Los Angeles, Toronto, New York City and London—in promotion of this once-in-a-lifetime event on Saturday, August 26. The event will be produced and distributed by SHOWTIME PPV®.
