Mayweather, McGregor International Press Tour Passing Through Brooklyn

Ryan Mayer

The fight that everyone has been anticipating for over two years is finally happening. Two of combat sports’ all-time trash-talkers will meet in the squared circle on Aug. 26 when undefeated Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. faces off with MMA two-division champion “The Notorious” Conor McGregor in Las Vegas.

As the two fighters get ready for the bout, Showtime announced Friday it’s launching a four-city international press tour that will be open to the public with complimentary tickets.

The fighters will appear at four separate news conferences over the course of four days, beginning Tuesday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
