- Verne Troyer causes Twitter storm ahead of Mayweather v McGregor fight

If there’s such a thing as the perfect tweet, it’s got to be the zinger which Verne Troyer sent out last night ahead of the Mayweather-McGregor fight.

While the rest of the world has been fixated on the ‘orgy of excess’ which has surrounded the cash-rich bout, Troyer has been focused on smaller matters.
The bgo Casino figurehead, famous for his appearance as Mini-Me in the Austin Powers film franchise, has mocked up a picture appearing to be hanging out in the McGregor camp ahead of the fight in Las Vegas on Saturday.
In a tweet which has since been shared over 5,000 times, Troyer revealed the picture of himself squaring up to Conor McGregor’s son, the pair resplendent in matching blue suits.
The Irishman unwittingly recreated Troyer’s ‘Boss’ character by dress ing three-month-old son Conor Jr up in the stylish get up.
“Me and @TheNotoriousMMA’s son bout to have the fight of the century” quipped Troyer, his bgo gold medallion clearly visible in the shot.
No promotional stone left unturned
Ahead of the fight between the fiery MMA champion and boxing titan Floyd Mayweather, no promotional opportunity has been left unendorsed.
Mayweather has even promoted a crytocurrency venture and gave himself “Crypto” as a middle name.
When Mayweather and McGregor enter the ring on Saturday night in Vegas, all of the silliness in the build-up to the event will be forgotten about as the fighters seek to settle their business.
Sports bettors meanwhile, who’ve wagered over $200 million on the fight already, will be watching eagerly to see if Irishman McGregor can pull off an upset and topple his undefeated opponent. Bookies stand to lose rather a lot of money if that happens.
Amidst all the name-calling and acrimony which has surrounded the run-up to the fight, Troyer’s tweet has provided a lighter moment that was much needed. Although the diminutive actor still takes on movie roles, these days he’s best known for fronting bgo Casino.
The casino’s ads have been hugely successful, helping to make bgo one of the most popular casinos on the web.
