Conor McGregor confronts boxing media at MSGConor McGregor was at Madison Square Garden on Friday night, St. Patrick’s Day, to support his friend Michael Conlan, an Olympic medalist in boxing who was making his professional debut.

Conlan won his fight, but McGregor stole the show.

As Top Rank promoter Bob Arum was holding court with the boxing writers along media row, McGregor busted in to continue his takeover of the boxing world, all without yet having set foot in a professional boxing match. 

McGregor has been locked in a war of words with former world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather, trying to put together one of the biggest boxing matches of all time.

Screaming at reporters, McGregor bellowed, “You’re the boxing guy? I’m the boxing guy. Watch me take over boxing, trust me on that. No one in this boxing game knows what’s coming.”

McGregor has never been short on confidence, and he certainly wasn’t on Friday night, as he continued his rant.

“Look me in the eyes, 28 years of age, confident as a (expletive), long, rangy, dangerous with every hand. Trust me, I’m going to stop Floyd and you’re all going to eat your words. The whole world is going to eat their words.”

The brash Irishman steered clear of the answer that everyone wants to hear: when are he and Mayweather going to fight?

“It’s getting close. Don’t worry about it. You’ll hear about it. I’m out of here!”

    Boxing should be thankful for conny,
    he’s bringing them the most attention they’ve gotten in years

    And we all know that boxing is a celebrity pony show these days and has been for decades

    If they got the opportunity they could feed conny clubber shlubs that would keep him afloat for years the same way they did with Mike Tyson long past his competitive prime

    And they’d be making the most money they’ve made since Mike Tyson

      It’s not really “boxing” giving him that kind of payday. Just Floyd.

        Agreed, it seems to me that people think boxers all get paid some ridiculous amount of money, but to me it seems to only be a select group of boxers, and only when they are matched against each other.

        • TheCerealKiller

          They are still paying some boxer as low as $500 a fight.

    I’d love to see a punch drunk Conor instinctively throw a head kick at Mayweather, knocking him out and getting DQ’d at the same time.

  • Ray D.

    Conor talks all this. Gets completely outclassed by Floyd. In the end, in won’t matter because Connor will have received exactly what he’s wanted from the beginning, which is his biggest payday. Hate that people will be shelling out their money to put into theirs.
