Chaotic scenes greet first Mayweather-McGregor event of fight week

Conor McGregor

The opening event of a week of build-up to potentially the most lucrative fight in boxing history produced chaotic scenes in Las Vegas, with Floyd Mayweather booed by unhappy fans.

The undefeated American arrived late and was barely visible, entering amid a large entourage before being largely hidden on stage by a media scrum.

Conor McGregor, his UFC champion challenger, then arrived and made a beeline for an Irish flag in the crowd before performing an impromptu lap of fans, as media and security gave chase.
