It seems the only way to shut Stephen A. Smith up when he’s in the middle of a rant is to storm the ESPN set and shout nonsense at the camera.
Because that’s exactly what happened on Saturday night after Floyd Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor in one of the most highly-anticipated fights in history.
After the fight, longtime ESPN personality Stephen A. was analysing the bout in his signature way, always playing Devil’s Advocate.
“It just should not have been that tough. A younger Floyd, a sharper Floyd, would have taken him out considerably earlier,”
That’s when the man, dressed in a black bow-tie and Boston Celtics hat, stormed the SportsCenter set while they were broadcasting live. The man was obviously unhappy, as proven by his choice of words.
“F— the Mayweathers, f— the Mayweathers”
Anchor Steve Levy took the opportunity to joke around with Smith after the man was dragged off camera.
“Friend of yours?”
“I don’t, I don’t know who the man is,” Smith responded.
It may be a cliche, but a lot of fans from Boston are also McGregor supporters. McGregor is a Celtics fan himself, and the Irish connections seem too good to be true.
