Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather's first press conference didn't really live up to the hype last night - but the Dubliner's war of words with the boxer's father was pretty entertaining afterwards.

After the two fighters met on stage on the first stop of their publicity tour, McGregor addressed the media alone, only for Floyd Mayweather senior to interrupt proceedings with some trash talk. McGregor seemed to love the unannounced appearance as he traded insults with the 64-year-old, claiming that Mayweather's father 'is a fan of his s**t'.

Mayweather senior appeared to challenge McGregor to a fight himself, with the UFC champion finding the idea hilarious. McGregor is set to fight Mayweather in Las Vegas on August 26.
