Floyd Mayweather Jr face to face with Conor McGregor impersonator
Despite the rather low probability of a fight actually taking place, the tension between pound for pound boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr and dual UFC Champion Conor McGregor is intensifying with their names still taking up headlines in the news for one reason or another.
Although the two fighting superstars still haven’t officially met (at least on camera), the fans as well as Floyd Mayweather were treated to a surprise during a Q and A event in Birmingham, England recently.
Irish comedian Al Foran shared on his Twitter account the moment where he delivered his pitch perfect Conor McGregor impression directly to Floyd and joined him on the stage to give his take on why the Boxing vs Mixed Martial Arts super fight should happen.
With Floyd and the crowd clearly impressed by his routine, Al Foran then follows up with superb impressions of Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, Mike Tyson, and Donald Trump.
Check out his mic skills below.
