MayGregor at the TB Tavern
Fight fans and ice-addicts alike descended on the Trinity Beach tavern today to see the cross-promotional brawl between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.
The TB Tavern is the spiritual home for purveyors of the pugilistic arts in North Queensland, and the bout did not disappoint. Some 5000 locals turned out to fill the sports-bar to overflowing and provide the best atmosphere outside Nevada.
"I love a fight between an old senile bloke, and a tatted Irishman who can't box," declared Jonno O'Reilly, 43, of Trinity Park. "Sweet memories. Can't wait for the rematch."
Mr Murray 'Jane' Simmonds, spokesman for the Mareeba Jay Keef Collective, the peak body for marijuana dealers in FNQ, was very happy with the event.
"The tradies love that MMA bullshit, and they love their frosty," he reported. "We expected a good day, but our takings look like being up there with Bathurst. Gold."
The referee stopped the bout in the 10th round over concerns that Mayweather may damage his cheque-signing hand on Macgregor's face.
