Please somebody PM if they have an extra ticket to this press conference tomorrow in Toronto. I wanna hear all the smack talk live! LOL

What is this exactly??? Are the 2 fighters actually coming to Toronto? What questions are they going to answer that haven't already been asked? Please don't tell me this will just be a live/remote skype stream with the fighters' faces projected onto giant screens.

I really don't see how they have time to do this... shouldn't they be training in a gym somewhere?

It's called a press conference.... the fight needs to be promoted, needs to be marketed, so that more viewers will be attracted which realistically will raise PPV and that means more money for the fighters and the organizations.
No point just training and fighting if they can't hit their budget for PPV sales.
Also, there's a good number of fans of combat sports (both MMA and Boxing) in Toronto, and a good amount of Iris population.
The hype is real.

Mayweather already needs money (can't pay IRS his last year's taxes)......lol

Manny Pacman also needs money...man, these guys sure know how to spend money!! All those hanger-ons need luxuries too!!

I can see at least 2 fights with Mcgregor....and another fight with Pacman..tho Pacman looked old and slow in his last fight.

Mayweather might fight Canelo again!! Another cash cow of boxing!!

All snorefests of course.....

To make it on even terms, Mayweather should face McGreggor in a return MMA-style fight after the boxing match.

McGreggor is highly unlikely to win in a pro-boxing match.
It would stir up more interest to see how Mayweather would fare in a UFC fight.

Won't happen Mayweather is just too smart and his A Camp decides everything. Absolutely everything is on Mayweather's terms and that is why he will leave this fight the WINNER.

With that said, these 4 cities press conferences will undoubtedly have more excitement than the real fight itself. LOL

That will never happen. Mayweather would become Mrs. Tapout (aka Conor's b****)

Actually they both winners!!!!

Money gets another payday and McGregor gets his biggest payday ever for a fight and all he has to do is dance around!!

Winner winner chicken dinner!!!

Mayweather is going to beat McGregor like one of his girlfriends.
Whenever someone asks a question that starts with "Why do they..." or "Why don't they...", the answer is always a) money, b) stupidity, or c) both.
