Dana White has laid out the full details for this week’s Floyd Mayweather Vs Conor McGregor world tour.
According to White, the tour begins on Tuesday in Los Angeles, then it’s on to Toronto on Wednesday, followed by New York on Thursday and then finally London, England on Friday.
“It’s going to be a f**king sh*tshow,” White said at the UFC 213 post-fight presser. “You know that. Absolute sh*tshow. So, I don’t know. It’s going to be crazy.”
White then appeared to hint that he wasn’t a big fan of the way the press conferences were likely to be structured.
“I think it’s going to be a hybrid of the boxing press conferences and UFC press conferences,” White said. “I don’t know. I think it’s going to be more like a boxing press conference than it is our press conferences. You know how mine are. No bull(expletive). We walk in, and we sit down and, ‘What’s up? Who has the first question,’ and we get it rolling. I think there’s going to be a lot more bull(expletive) in this one.
“I’m going to sit there with a mic, and when you ask me a question I will answer it. I’m not going to get up and give any speeches or do anything like that. I think Conor and I will come in, Conor and I will sit down, and we’ll answer questions when asked questions. I think that the rest of the people that are going to come in – I think there’s going to be a lot of people that come in and talk and have speeches.”
Nevertheless, White stated that there was a massive amount of fan interest in the pressers, with over 30,000 tickets being snapped up for the L.A. and New York stopovers alone.
“Staples Center is sold out, and by sold out, I mean we did tickets and there’s no more seats left,” White said. “Barclays (Center) sold out. We had to get a bigger venue in Toronto, and we’re doing Wembley in England. It’s going to be crazy.”
