If you saw any of this past week’s Mayweather vs. McGregor World Tour press conferences you likely heard Conor McGregor referring to Floyd Mayweather’s shorter stature and smaller frame as one of the reason’s the UFC champ was going to KO the boxing legend inside of four rounds. Apparently McGregor’s comments hit a nerve with Mayweather because during the Brooklyn leg of the tour Mayweather showed up with some odd kicks reminiscent of Pee Wee Herman’s disco style platform shoes. The lifted shoes weren’t fooling anyone, least of all Conor who called him out in front of everyone for wearing “high heels”!
Yesterday's presser I thought "Conor isn't that much bigger than Floyd"
But then I seen Floyds shoes 🙈 😅
