NY rapper 50 Cent is really ready to see Conor McGregor fall.

However, just 24 hours later, McGregor got Mayweather back as spectators in the Toronto press-tour joined McGregor in a "F*** the Mayweathers" chant. "However, HHH only reiterated what he has already said during an interview with SkySports".

The New York Daily News reported on the visit to the Bronx's 46 Precinct by the undefeated boxing champ.

Mayweather's tax attorney did not return messages seeking comment from The Associated Press.

Dana White introduced McGregor to the NY crowd.

Over the past 48 hours, 50 Cent has lit up McGregor with savage trolling.

Most people seem to disagree that McGregor was been racist.

Two killed in Egypt beach stabbing
It was the first major attack on foreign tourists in more than a year as Egypt struggles to revive its tourism industry. The interior ministry said in a statement that the attacker, who had swum ashore, was arrested and was being questioned.

"Because that's all you're worth", Mayweather replied.

The crowd may be rooting for the underdog out of these two competitors with Mayweather clearly having more experience in the boxing ring.

"I'm going to change the face of the game the same way I have for Mixed Martial Arts", he boasted. After finding a photo of the promoter credential on Instagram, Alsop went to work on constructing an identical copy, down to the lamination.

Then, Mayweather started shadowboxing, which made McGregor laugh.

During the NY press conference Mayweather showered one dollars bills on the stage.

"(He) didn't quit once, didn't quit twice, quit three times!" said Mayweather. If nothing else having Mayweather and McGregor mix it up, even verbally, would be entertaining to WWE fans.

Mayweather, 40, has been criticised for coming out of retirement to fight UFC lightweight champion McGregor, who has never boxed beyond novice level as an amateur.
