Floyd Mayweather Snr threatened to "knock the f*** out" of Conor McGregor ahead of his fight against his son.

There was a slight issue with where the fight would actually be held up until this week with Big 3 basketball league having already booked August 26 in the Las Vegas Arena for it's first championship game. Conor McGregor's "f**k you" suit stole the show as he appeared cool and suave compared to Mayweather's casual attire.

Perhaps one of Mayweather's biggest moments of the night came when he brandished what he said was a cheque for $100million - reportedly his fee for coming out of retirement.

"I thought the Forbes list ran from January to December but it's July to July". I'll wear 10 ounces.

He was, of course, named the game's MVP, becoming the third Mariners player to do so, joining Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr . Finally, while Miami is a good tourism city, it's also one of MLB's more isolated locations .

McGregor, 28, crosses disciplines from mixed martial arts in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) to take on undefeated 40-year-old boxing legend Mayweather. "Or two years ago", said Mayweather. I don't fear him. "I can't push my body, it's gruelling".

The next stop on the tour will be in Toronto, Canada on Wednesday where I'm sure we will see more fireworks between the two. It has to be my last one. We know he's a $100m fighter, but we don't really care. I know how he felt but he will get more comfortable, believe me. "Deep in my heart I know this is it".

Earlier this week, it was reported Mayweather owes $22.2 million in unpaid taxes to the U.S. federal government from the year of his biggest payday, when he reportedly earned over $200 million from his 2015 showdown with Manny Pacquiao. You'd rather be asked questions and elaborate with your answers.

Anyway, Mayweather might have to administer the fade, taper, and line up for the culture on August 26 when the fight goes down at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena. "And if this is the end of his career, then it is what it is". "He's a tough competitor but it is what it is". He is a five-division world champion and has a 49-0 record.

After McGregor sat back down, Mayweather was introduced and simply started chanting "hard work" with the small percentage of the crowd replying "dedication", which is Mayweather's mantra.

A rise in interest rates from the central bank of Canada would be the first such increase by that bank in close to seven years. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.37 percent from 2.38 percent late Monday.

"That's the referee's job", Mayweather said. This fight very likely isn't going the distance.

"I'll leave all that up to the referee". They will be in retail stores and we'll build an online shopping site to rival Net-A-Porter, who makes $US66 million profit a year.

"The fans demanded the fight". I always want to fight. Brashness has a new poster boy!

Do you something awesome to share with the world? "I will beat your ass, I will beat your ass".
