The first of a planned four-city press conference tour for next month's blockbuster boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is slated to kick off Tuesday, July 11 at 3 p.m.
Mayweather and McGregor faced off in Los Angeles to promote the bout between one of boxing's greatest pugilists and one of the UFC's biggest stars who has never boxed before.

The two will square off Aug. 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (an interesting story in its own right).
Mayweather enters the bout 49-0, but hasn't fought since retiring following his win over Andre Berto on Sept. 12, 2015.
McGregor (0-0 in boxing) is fresh off becoming the UFC's first simultaneous two-division champion after claiming the lightweight title in the mixed martial arts promotion in November.
At the time he also held the featherweight division belt. He has since been stripped of the featherweight title because he's journeyed into the boxing world and the UFC did not want belts in two divisions being held up by someone who won't be fighting in the UFC for some time. He has an MMA record of 21-3.
On Monday, it was revealed that the pay-per-view event would cost $89.95 for standard definition and $99.95 for high definition.
