Floyd Mayweather Jr threw money at Conor Mc Gregor during their third press conference

Those prices should be expected for a fight of this magnitude; whether or not you think it actually will be a compelling bout, Mayweather-McGregor is one of the most anticipated events in recent boxing history. "You can't even read", he said, prompting the crowd to erupt in laughter. "Hell no. You f-king weasel".

In what was probably his finest ever press conference performance, the circus arrives in NY on Thursday and ahead of their third promotional event.

McGregor and Mayweather will battle over 12 rounds at 154 pounds with 10 ounce gloves.

"28-years of age, I'm getting fight checks and promoter checks".

If the August 26 bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor matches the fighters' trash talking Tuesday, boxing fans could be in for a real treat next month.

The two boxers are now on a four-day promotional tour.

"What the f**k is he wearing", said McGregor.

Kavanagh was speaking at a news conference in Glasgow, where another of his UFC fighters, Gunnar Nelson, is set to face Santiago Ponzinibbio this Sunday and he will jet out to the United States on Monday to re-join McGregor's camp.

Mayweather remained calm throughout McGregor's tirade of verbal jabs, nodding his head and appearing close to boredom.

Seeing this, McGregor laughed so much, brought the microphone to his lips and said, "Dance for me, boy!".

"If you believe in yourself, like you say you believe in yourself, bet your whole fight check you b*tch", Mayweather screamed. McGregor will make at least $75 million, which is five times more than any UFC event.

"No f*cking problem. Send the contract".
