FAIL! Conor McGregor tries to knock off Floyd Mayweather’s cap

Conor McGregor was on fire during his World Press Tour with upcoming opponent Floyd Mayweather Jr. The two traveled from L.A. to Toronto to Brooklyn and London promoting their Aug. 26 pay-per-view fight as the UFC lightweight champ prepares to make his pro boxing debut. And if you’re thinking about putting some money on this fight we highly suggest sticking with only the safest and most trusted UFC betting sites before you do.

During the Brooklyn leg of the press tour McGregor came out shirtless wearing a mink coat and talking a big game. Then, playing up to the Brooklyn crowd, he pulled out Jay-Z’s new 4:44 album and gave it to Mayweather, telling him to listen to it to “learn how to build and maintain a real empire, not a fake empire”. Then McGregor tried knocking off Mayweather’s cap but failed to achieve liftoff. Fortunately, Mayweather kept his cool and is saving the fisticuffs for the ring, but things could have gone sour real quick. Check it out as Conor’s hat trick falls flat.

Conor isn’t a boxer but he is making his boxing debut against the pound for pound best in the world. What is happening right now? Sure, McGregor is a combat sports star, but that doesn’t mean he can box. That would be like Michael Irvin jumping in to major league soccer and being touted as the star of the best team in the league. Crazy! Still, he seems genuine. Poor guy.
