Fans of Conor McGregor reportedly harassed Floyd Mayweather Jr. outside of the SSE Arena in London after the last press conference of the fighters’ world tour, swarming Money’s Rolls-Royce as he tried to leave.
TMZ Sports reported the news and also shared this video, in which Mayweather’s car appeared to hit a member of the security team as he tried to escape.
Mayweather and McGregor embarked on a four-day press tour to promote their bout Aug. 26 in Las Vegas, and it finished in London on Friday. UFC President Dana White correctly predicted Mayweather’s reception in England, as the crowd had been on the Irishman’s side throughout the tour, per UFC commentator Jon Anik.
Per CNN’s Nicholas Glass, the tour accomplished its purpose, attracting tons of new fans and adding to the gigantic purse.
At 49-0 for his career, Mayweather is the clear favourite inside the ring.
