Well, that was interesting.
Boxing standout Floyd Mayweather and UFC star Conor McGregor — who clearly forgot to pack a shirt — traveled from Toronto to visit the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Thursday for the third stop of the tour promoting their upcoming fight. And like the first two stops, Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Tuesday and Toronto’s Sony Centre for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, there was plenty of profanity and machismo to appease the rowdy boxing fans in attendance.
Included in Thursday’s theatrics was Mayweather throwing piles of singles in the air in the direction of McGregor, who was wearing a custom Gucci mink coat, paired with pants also from the brand. For the footwear aficionado, McGregor completed the flamboyant look with Gucci loafers.
Shockingly, the look McGregor sported in NYC wasn’t the one most talked about on this press tour. The MMA fighter rocked a sharp suit in Los Angeles with the words “F**k You” used to form its pinstripes. McGregor opted for a buckled pointy oxford shoe to wear with the suit.
The final stop of the press tour is tonight in London at the SSE Arena. The Showtime Sports live stream of the event begins at 2 p.m. ET.
Mayweather and McGregor will face each other in a boxing match on Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
