Conor McGregor discusses the Floyd Mayweather domestic violence record and claims that he made alleged racist remarks.
Two weeks today Irishman Conor McGregor will step through the ropes of a professional boxing ring for the first time in his life.
Standing across the ring from him will be one of the most talented boxers of this generation. Widely considered the best of the last twenty years.
McGregor had his media workout yesterday as he and his team surrounded themselves with members of the media and public for the first time in over a month – having locked themselves away getting ready for Floyd Mayweather on August 26th.
Coming into the media frenzy event on August 26th both men have exchanged plenty of verbal slights at one another in the build-up – with Mayweather alleging McGregor made racial slurs on their recent international press tour.
McGregor has been quiet in recent weeks since the international press tour but now for the first time, has opened up fully with journalist Ariel Helwani in a hard-hitting interview just two weeks out from the first bell.
He touches on everything here from becoming a father the first time, the past Floyd Mayweather violence record he highlighted through a now infamous basketball jersey and addresses the alleged racist remarks that some claim he made.
One of the most honest interviews from a combat sports athlete this journalist has seen in some time:
