Earlier reports claimed the fighters were in the same plane but these proved incorrect
CONOR McGREGOR and Floyd Mayweather boarded identical private jets to London for the final leg of their world tour.
The two fighting giants are in the capital for the last of their four press conferences before their Las Vegas super-fight.
And despite racial accusations and growing tensions that have threatened to boil over, the pair were snapped getting off identical private jets before meeting again at the SSE Wembley Arena tonight.
Earlier reports had claimed the fighters were on the same plane – but these were incorrect.
The flight from the Big Apple to London lasted around seven hours before they headed into the terminal ahead of their final press conference.
Fans have not been left disappointment in entertainment value over the previous three nights.
From launching dollar bills in the air to insults over choices of attire, millions have tuned in worldwide to watch the action unravel.
But it may have hit a sour note after McGregor was forced to deny accusations that he used a racial slur against his opponent.

Conor McGregor sparks racism row with Floyd Mayweather after Rocky reference
The Irishman appeared to use the term ‘dancing monkeys’ to describe black people in relation to a scene from a Rocky film.
In an interview with late night American talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! he was asked who would win between him and Sylvester Stallone’s character in Rocky III.
The UFC champ responded: “Rocky III, that’s the one where he had that celebrity gym isn’t it? With the dancing monkeys in the gym and all.”
Mayweather has claimed that McGregor has “crossed the line” but McGregor has fired back at claims that he is racist as ‘ridiculous.’
Speaking to MMA Fighting, he said: “That’s ridiculous, how does that make sense.
“That’s what’s annoying me, that’s why I wanted to bring it up today, in a playful way.
“I mean how could you say that when look at me for f*** sake, I’m coming out rapping play Biggie [The Notorious B.I.G.] – I pulled out Jay Z’s album and all for f*** sake.
“I’m a big fan of the s***, I’m a big fan of the culture, all I listen to is rap,” McGregor added.
“I’m just out there having fun, if he’s [Mayweather] thinking I’m disrespecting and he’s angry then so what – deal with it.”
