The question that everyone has been hyping up. The question that leaves us all on the edge of our seats. The question we keep hearing around on every corner of every street. Yes, you guessed it. “Who do you think will win? Mayweather or McGregor!?” Now, this is definitely a question you need to think about before answering.
In LA, most would answer “Mayweather of course!!” but in Ireland? Oh, you best believe that McGregor is the name buzzing around. As a born and raised Irish man, I do have to root for McGregor all the way. I mean, how could you not love him? He’s hilarious, a bit of a potty mouth, and he puts on a good show for the audience!
The past press conference shows McGregor’s true side and was definitely one for the books. For those of you who didn’t watch, basically, McGregor called Mayweather a plethora of names and then tried to get the audience to chant “f*ck the Mayweathers”.
Of course, this isn’t very professional in my opinion, but this is the norm when it comes to press conferences. This is also the norm when it comes to McGregor.
As a musician, I relate to the ‘performance’ that these two boxers, as well as other boxers all over the world, have had to put on. It’s all about entertainment in the end. The audience is always reaching and grasping for more and if you can’t give them what they want, then you don’t have an audience anymore!!
As a musician, my main goal is always about giving the audience what they want. Giving them more of my material in order to keep them on their toes. To me, the audience is everything. Without one, I wouldn’t be the Keith Cullen I am today.
Mayweather and McGregor put on a grand performance and these press conferences are very good to learn from and easy to incorporate that knowledge on their ‘performance’ into my social media presence. Even then, I consider myself learning from other ‘artists’ on all types of platforms. So I end this blog with one question, and one question only. Who do YOU think will win on the 26th of August?
