Watch: Mayweather, McGregor entourages nearly come to blows

Ariel Helwani joins Tim Micallef and Donnovan Bennett to preview the fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather and go over the storylines as the fight draws near.

Do Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor really, truly hate each other? That’s up for debate.

With all the dollars being poured into their boxing match this Saturday, one could make the argument that they’re just being good businessmen by maintaining a public dislike for each other.

But when it comes down to the fighters’ entourages, there might be genuine hate and that looked evident in the latest episode of Mayweather vs. McGregor Embedded.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. comes out of retirement to put his 49-0 unblemished record against UFC star Conor McGregor in a sanctioned boxing match. Watch it live on Sportsnet Pay-Per-View Aug. 26 at 9:00 p.m. ET.

During a recent media event in front of T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to promote the fight, McGregor’s camp got into a scuffle and nearly came to blows with Mayweather’s ‘Money Team.’

“You in our country,” Mayweather was seen yelling.

From hip-hop right down to boxing, you can always depend on entourages to really escalate beefs.

Also in the video, McGregor is confronted by former sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi, who had some choice words for the UFC Fighter.
