After the trash talk and barbs were exchanged last night in LA, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather move to the Budweiser Stage in Toronto, Canada for the second leg of their four-city international press tour and you can see it live here from 10.30pm.

The Crumlin brawler donned an expletive-laden suit at the Staples Center last night and will surely have more tricks up his sleeve tonight as he tries to antagonise and psych out the undefeated Mayweather ahead of their August 26 bout.

McGregor has vowed to knock Floyd Mayweather out inside four rounds when the pair meet in a Las Vegas boxing match next month.

McGregor has never boxed as an amateur or professionally but will face undefeated former multiple world champion Mayweather at the T-Mobile Arena on August 26 under normal boxing rules.

However, the 28-year-old Dubliner is confident he can achieve something which proved beyond the likes of Manny Pacquiao, Saul Alvarez and Oscar de la Hoya and beat the American.

Watch the sparks fly in Toronto right here from 10.30pm onwards:
