Mayweather vs McGregor: Twitter reacts to wild, awkward press tour kickoff in LA

Boxing: Mayweather vs McGregor-World Tour Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The first leg of the “Mayweather vs. McGregor” press tour kicked off earlier today (Tues., July 11, 2017) inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., to promote the upcoming boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor on Aug. 26, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

See the full video replay here and the first staredown between “Money” and “Notorious” here.

Both men exchanged barbs at each other, with McGregor poking fun at Floyd’s IRS troubles, while “Money” assured him he has the funds — and then some -- to handle his business, while promising to “tax” his “bitch ass” come fight night. Naturally, the combat sports community had mixed reactions on social media, so take a look at some of the best ones, including reaction to Conor’s mic getting cut off during the presser, which prevented him from firing back at his new-found nemesis.
