That's all from me tonight, keep an eye on the BBC Sport website for a full report from tonight's festivities.

Thank you for joining me.

Favourite insult of the night would have to be Mayweather's: "I'm a home cooked meal. you are a microwaved meal."

Biggest claim?

Mayweather wins it again with "I run Ireland."

Plenty of swearing from both parties but the whole thing was a bit playground wasn't it?

The most violent it got was when Mayweather ripped up a poster bearing McGregor's name.

I reckon that's it.

Few last words between the pair and then they exit the ring.

Not exactly explosive was it.

Let's hope the fight is better.

Next stop 26 August in Las Vegas.

"The whole trip has been amazing. Is it even a press conference? They transformed into something amazing," says McGregor.

Mayweather has finished.

So now they face-off.

McGregor's bearded face giving plenty of trashtalk.

Now it's question time.

This is nice, Mayweather asks everyone to wish McGregor a happy birthday.

Good of him that.

McGregor then asks everyone to chant something massively rude to the American.


"You should have got me for the UFC, I run the octagon, I run the ring. You say something else I will beat you in the octagon" says Mayweather.

McGregor replies: "When I spark you on 26 August, I'm gonna make you face me in the rematch in the octagon and then we will see if you are all talk or not?"

Can't see Mayweather going for that.

McGregor flips the birdie at Mayweather, who tells him to shut up and throws a bottle of water on the floor.

This is genuinely what this has become.

"You're the student, I'm the teacher," says Mayweather.

"Well bring your schoolbag," replies McGregor.

Mayweather then asks Dana White if they can go to Dublin tomorrow.

Sounds a great plan lads, get me involved.

"I'm a home cooked meal. you are a microwaved meal," says Mayweather.

That is some metaphor, no idea what he is on about.


Mayweather makes the guy on the PA system play "tap out".

Guessing that refers to the time McGregor tapped out against Nate Diaz.

He keeps saying the Irishman is a quitter.

Apparently Mayweather was in Dublin the other week and didn't see McGregor.

Fair play to him, it's a big city.

Did people pay to go and watch this? They are not getting their money's worth.

Has Mayweather run out of things to say?

"I won't touch you to 26 August. he says, right in McGregor's face.

Mayweather asking for more chants then says something sweary to McGregor.

The American is recycling old material from earlier in the week.

"I run Ireland" says Mayweather.

He doesn't.

The crowd tell Mayweather to "sit down" and then launch into "Ohhhh Conor McGregor."

Clear favourite here.

Mayweather has taken all the microphones from McGregor's table, so the Irishman jumps up and gets one off the American's table.

"I'm too quick for you son, " says McGregor.

Mayweather launches into that "hard work" chant, the crowd booing him a fair bit.

Can Mayweather do any better?

He starts by ripping a Conor McGregor poster up and throwing it on the floor of the ring.

McGregor finishes by throwing the microphone on the floor.

Get the feeling he has run out of insults this week, that was tame.

"I am boxing" says McGregor.

He then gets all playground on Mayweather, rubbing his head and calling him a "slap head".

Classic primary school banter.

Mayweather's age comes in for some verbals.

He then lays into Mayweather's entourage, who rounded on McGregor in New York.

Yesterday Mayweather instructed his team to "form voltron", prompting his entourage to surround McGregor and get in the Dubliner's face.

McGregor loves to wind Mayweather up about his height, apparently he wore heels yesterday?

"This is my first time in a boxing ring and in six weeks I run boxing" the birthday boy says.

"We are six weeks out from the biggest fight in sporting history and I am 29 today," says McGregor.

As McGregor starts on Mayweather, with the first, second, third, fourth...expletive of the night, the American seems to be taking a selfie.

Huge introduction for McGregor.

Let's see what the UFC fighter has to say.

The compere is getting roundly booed here. Now Dana White takes the mic to have a chat to the crowd.

The two are just shouting at each other in the ring before UFC president Dana White steps in and pulls the Irishman back.

They are then separated by a lectern and sit down at their respective tables.

McGregor has the microphone.

He is face to face with Mayweather.

As Mayweather enters the ring he is set upon by McGregor, who dances very much in his personal space.

He has smartened up for London.

A huge sparkling set of chains around 'Money' Mayweather's neck.

He stands at the entrance and very casually saunters to the stage. He shakes hands with the fans and is clearly making McGregor wait.

As the Irishman dances in the ring, he is stared down by Mayweather.

His entourage arrive and he moves towards McGregor.

These entrances have been a bit of a let down. Where are the fireworks?

As McGregor continues to interact with the crowd, Floyd Mayweather gets his official introduction.

Guessing a tracksuit and t-shirt combo for the American?

As already said, there is a boxing ring in Wembley Arena and McGregor enters it and starts shadow boxing.

This is classic McGregor, sharp blue three-piece suit, dramatic music.

He bows to the audience and strolls in like Liam Gallagher.


First onto the stage is Conor McGregor.

Mixture of boos and cheers for the Dubliner.

Here he comes...

Happy Birthday to you

Oh, worth mentioning that it is McGregor's birthday.

The Irishman is 29 today.

Have a feeling he might mention that at some stage.

Mayweather up on the judges cards

Confrontations, shouting, goading, showers of dollar bills, a polar beat coat, a pinstripe suit covered in expletives, a Jay Z album, thousands of fans, plenty of controversy and LOTS of swearing.

That just about sums up the first three days of this media tour.

The consensus is Mayweather won LA, McGregor stormed back in Toronto, while the American edged New York.

So expect McGregor to come out all guns blazing tonight.

Tale of the tape

If you're new to this, let me recap.

UFC megastar Conor McGregor, who usually plys his trade in mixed martial arts, is fighting former five-weight world champion Floyd Mayweather.

The pair will meet over 12 rounds under boxing rules on 26 August in Las Vegas.

It's worth mentioning at this stage, that McGregor has never boxed as an amateur or professional, while Mayweather has won 49 from his 49 professional fights.

To promote the fight, they are holding four news conferences in four different cities, on four different days.

We have already been to LA, Toronto and New York and tonight we land in London.

Get in touch with all your thoughts by tweeting #bbcboxing, I'd love to hear from you.

Big change from the previous three days, there is an actual boxing ring in the middle of Wembley Arena tonight.

I'm guessing those tables are to sit behind and not throw...where is Dereck Chisora when you need him?

They should have been on stage at 19:00 BST, but tardiness has been a theme of this tour and they were 90 minutes late in New York last night.

Apparently we're not too far away from the main event, so fingers crossed.

These two have been busy this week, but one thing they haven't been is on time.

Who's ready for round four?
