During | Showtime Exec Denies Cutting McGregor’s Microphone During Press Conference In Los Angeles

During Ultimate Fighting Championship press conferences, ConorMcGregor is known for holding court even when the spotlight issupposed to be on his opponent.

However, “The Notorious” one was unable to respond to most of FloydMayweather ‘s verbal jabs during a press conference at theStaples Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday, as it appeared that hismicrophone was cut off as the undefeated boxer took centerstage.

That prompted McGregor to issue a ‘F”k Showtime’ statement during a media scrumfollowing the press conference. Prior to Wednesday’s pressconference in Toronto, Showtime Sports vice president issued astatement denying that McGregor’s microphone was silenced duringthe proceedings.

“At no point did Showtime or event productions cut any microphonesintentionally during Tuesday’s kickoff event in Los Angeles,”Espinoza said. “The point of this world tour is to let thesesuperstars interact with the fans and with each other. Cuttingtheir mics would go against our goal of delivering these fightersto the masses and letting their charismatic and entertainingpersonalities take center stage.”

After Toronto, the Mayweather-McGregor promotional tour will headBrooklyn, N.Y., on Thursday before concluding in London on Friday.Mayweather and McGregor will square off at the T-Mobile Arena inLas Vegas on Aug. 26.
