Mayweather and McGregor launch world tour to promote fight

Even before Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor step foot in the ring for their eagerly awaited August battle, the two fighters will meet up four times. Expect the sparks to fly starting tomorrow (July 11) .

Over the next four days the duo will be face-to-face for four open to the public conferences in three countries this week with the world’s sports media.

Before visiting Toronto, New York and the English capital of London the fireworks begin tomorrow (July 11) in Los Angeles. Call it the very first square-off between notorious UFC champion McGregor and the legendary boxing champ Money Mayweather.

After Los Angeles the two men immediately fly to Toronto for Wednesday’s sit-down followed by Brooklyn, New York on Thursday this week (July 13). Despite the jet lag and air travel they will arrive in England for Friday night’s media and public show.

They will either wind up as good friends from the four-day world trek or even more bitter enemies than they are now. No word if they get separate private jets for the grueling swing or how they’ll feel afterwards before training becomes serious for the final six weeks before the late August battle to end all sports battles here in Las Vegas.
