"You owe money", McGregor responded, referring to reports that Mayweather earlier this month asked the Internal Revenue Service for more time to pay his 2015 tax bill. "You can't even read", he said, prompting the crowd to erupt in laughter. "Hell no. You f-king weasel and you f-king b-ch".
The press conference begins at 12.00 pm Irish time (7.00 pm local time) in the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York.
The average price for Mayweather-McGregor might be close to the same, as intermediary tickets are priced at $1,500, $2,500, $3,500, $5,000 and $7,500.
This has never just been about a boxing match between two fighters from completely different disciplines and it seems the world just can't get enough.

The tension between boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and UFC superstar Conor McGregor boiled over into Toronto on Wednesday as the global stars continued their blockbuster World Tour to announce their August 26 showdown on SHOWTIME PPV from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The Washington Post notes that McGregor then said, "Dance for me, sir!".
There are widespread rumours that Floyd Mayweather can not read and The Notorious used this to add fuel to the fire. He was talking about how he is going to knock me out, you know.

During the latter part of the press conference, Mayweather grabbed an Irish flag from the audience and draped himself in it to mock McGregor as he's done throughout his career when facing top boxers from Latin American countries as well. "I do numbers. I make money", said Mayweather, who is worth about $340 million, according to Forbes.
When UFC president Dana White finally introduced his man, "The Notorious" brought is own microphone and, after checking it worked, he declared, "I guess I don't f**king need this one!" "Send the contract. It's done". One shot is all it takes me.
