Donald Trump to attend Mayweather vs McGregor boxing match?

Freddie Roach believes Conor McGregor can beat Floyd Mayweather MGM clears way for Mayweather-McGregor at T-Mobile Arena

Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor has vowed to knock Floyd Mayweather out inside four rounds when the pair meet in a Las Vegas boxing match next month.

The incident happened on Tuesday during a wild first stop of the fight's promotional tour in Los Angeles. At times it felt more like a Christmas pantomime, though an x-rated pantomine of profanity at that.

Mayweather replied: "I guarantee you're going out on your face or your back".

The IRS still has Floyd Mayweather Jr. on the hook for $7.2 million in taxes from 2010, according to records that show a lien as unresolved for the year he fought Shane Mosley.

WWE and boxing fans may remember Triple H once accompanied Mayweather for the latter's boxing match, and of course the boxer's WWE appearances leading up to his match against Big Show at WrestleMania 24.

Asked if Trump wanted to come, White said, "100 percent".

Though the news release announcing the move said the league had been given "a generous offer that we could not refuse", the founders strongly rejected the notion that their little league had been leaned on, Godfather-style.

Murray and Konta targeting Wimbledon quarter-finals on Manic Monday
Wimbledon , but it's better to have plenty of British players to win", Wade said in comments released by the All England Club . Konta said she was "excited and humble" to be facing Venus Williams , a match that Wade predicted the Briton would win.

"How's this suit look?" he laughed. "If you zoom in on the pinstripe, it says 'F**K YOU.'" McGregor gets his suits custom-made by David August.

McGregor kicked off the event, where he boldly predicted that he would finish Mayweather in the first four rounds of the event. His little legs. His little vehicle.

Unlike Mayweather, McGregor has actually suffered defeat before.

It's an allegation Mayweather was quick to deny - sharing an image of a $26 million tax bill on his Facebook page and insisting "my empire is rock solid and intact".

"Everyone was saying the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. that wasn't my fault". But honestly, for a fight where so many people are going to make so much money, you'd think they could afford microphones that worked.

For those of you at home, the pay-per-view will cost $99.95 in high definition and $89.95 in standard definition.

The media conference was the first in a four-day worldwide tour promoting the bout.
