Mayweather in heated exchange with Michael and Ryan Walsh as Davis vs Walsh press conference boils over
FLOYD MAYWEATHER was involved in an x-rated row with the two brothers of world title challenger Liam Walsh today.
Mayweather was in London to help promote his fighter Gervonta Davis’ IBF supe-featherwight title clash with Walsh this weekend.
But the pre-fight press conference boiled over when Walsh’s fighting brothers Michael and Ryan began heckling the undefeated former five-weight world champion.

Ryan began taunting Mayweather over the fact he had never fought outside of America, and questioned how he could be a true boxing great.
Michael then chipped in to accuse IBF champ Davis of creeping around Mayweather and challenged him to come out of his shadow.
The three rowed continually through the press conference, much to the amusement of Davis and dismay of British and Commonwealth champion Liam who is looking to score a shock win on Saturday.
And the simmering row exploded minutes later in full view of the packed conference in a central London hotel.
Michael Walsh shouted: “Go on Gervonta, you get further up his a**e
Mayweather: “You’re the two pussies fighting on the undercard. You’re a pussy, you’re a pussy, both of you are pussies
“I beat 23 world champions.

The exchange overshadowed to the real event which saw 22-year-old Davis, nicknamed Tank, and Walsh speak for the final time before they fight at the Copper Box Arena on Saturday.
Davis is unbeaten in 17 professional fights and Mayweather has groomed him to become the next superstar of world boxing.
But Rochdale fighter Walsh is also unbeaten in his 21 fights and is regarded as the toughest opponent Davis will have faced in his career.
Ryan Walsh is fighting on the undercard this weekend as he defends his British featherweight title against Northern Ireland’s Marco McCullough.
