Mayweather, McGregor to kick off tour
Let the hype begin. Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor will kick off a four-city tour Tuesday in Los Angeles to promote their Aug. 26 fight. Promoters planned to distribute free tickets Friday to the Staples Center event.
The fighters will then travel to Toronto for an appearance Wednesday, followed by New York on Thursday and London on Friday. Mayweather is coming out of retirement for a boxing match against a UFC star who has never boxed professionally.
