Floyd Mayweather explains strange fashion choice for last night's press conference

Press conference number two is nearly upon us and we're all hoping for something a little different from Tuesday night.

In one of the highlights of the night (not that there was many) Conor McGregor said of Mayweather:

"He's in a fucking tracksuit, he can't even afford a suit anymore."

As part of his sporting tracksuit, Mayweather wore a snapback branding the number 48.

Why the number 48 you say? Surely Mayweather remembers that fight against Andre Berto even if nobody else does.

His reasoning is simple really, it's all down to 'Money' Mayweather making a whole lot of, well, money.

Speaking at a media scrum after the press conference, the American revealed the significance of the number.

"Why am I wearing the hat? This was a $300m fight, I made $300m in that fight so that's why so until this record is broken this was the most important fight," the undefeated fighter said.

Both of the fighters will face off again on Wednesday night in Toronto at 10 pm Irish time.
