Conor McGregor had some company at his solo press conference Tuesday, as an agitated Floyd Mayweather Sr. came crashing in. The two argued over McGregor’s fight against his son on Aug. 26.

McGregor couldn’t resist the opportunity to take another jab at Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s age of 40, as he said he couldn’t tell father and son apart and was calling Floyd Mayweather Sr. “Junior.”

McGregor’s battle of words with Mayweather Sr. was just one many highlights during the first of four scheduled press events ahead of the fight.
