Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather have faced off for the final time before the big fight on Sunday.
McGregor turned up about two hours late for the pre-fight press conference, but the Irishman’s stunt didn’t seem to phase Mayweather.
“I don’t really worry about that. It’s about being professional,” Mayweather said.

The boxing legend continued by stating that he was confident about where he was at.
“When it’s all said and done, one thing I know that I can do: I can fight. I can give it and I can take it. But for me to be 49-0, it’s obvious: I’m not receiving it, I’m giving it.
“I’ve been here plenty of times. Guys say, ‘I’m gonna go to the body on Mayweather, I’m gonna hit him with the right hand, I’m gonna hit him with the left hook’. After 21 years, I’ve been hit with everything and I’m still right here.
“Anything and everything that can be done in boxing, I’ve done it. Not just once, not just twice … 1000 times. I was born a fighter, I will die a fighter.”

McGregor then took to the stage, telling everyone that they’re going to “eat their words”.
“I’m gonna f*** this boy up, make no mistake. And when it’s all said and done, you know what, I’m gonna feel a little bit sad. Because you all shoulda kept your mouths shut, you shoulda left me over in that other game that I’m from, that more ruthless game where we bounce heads off canvas and drill them into the floor.
“You shoulda left me where I was, because this man is not on my level, he’s not even a quarter of the man I am. So we’re gonna see and you are all going to eat your words in there.”
