McGregor was due to arrive at 1.30pm local time, 9.30pm UK time, 30 minutes before Mayweather.

But the American boxer was first to the T-Mobile Arena shortly after 2pm local time with McGregor following shortly after.

Mayweather was dressed in a black and red checked shirt and a black hat and glasses as he took to the stage in front of the public.

The confident 49-0 legend claimed: “This fight is not going the distance.”

McGregor once again enjoyed the lion’s share of support and he lapped it all up on his way to the stage.

The Irishman looked relaxed as he took to the stage looking sharp in his purple suit.
