The second of three Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor pre-fight press conferences goes off tonight, this one in Toronto. Tuesday’s show in Los Angeles was entertaining, sure — Mayweather showed McGregor a check and hurled expletives, and McGregor wore a suit that had the words “Fuck You” over and over as the pinstripes.
But where is there to go after that? How many times can you say “I’m going to bounce your head off the canvas”? At what point do you recognize that this is on the internet, and kids are watching? And speaking of that, you adults can watch it all below, beginning at 5:20 p.m. (ET), live:
It’s now clear that these pressers are a lot like Presidential debates: They’re not going to change the outcome, people are going to hear what they want to hear, and at some point penis size will be addressed.
As far as hype goes, Twitter’s doing just fine all by itself:

Per @SandhuMMA, north of 4.5 million views of Mayweather-McGregor presser b/w UFC and Showtime YouTube channels thus far. That'll work.
