WATCH: New ESPN mini-documentary on McGregor and Crumlin features embarrassing Irish accent


Six days to go until Mayweather-McGregor and the anticipation continues to build.

Today ESPN Sportscentre released a mini-documentary on McGregor and his background in Crumlin ahead of next Saturday’s mega-money bout in Las Vegas.

Titled ‘NOTORIOUS,’ the short film features talking heads fro members of the Dublin public as well as a visit to Crumlin BC for an interview with Bra Brady.

It’s an interesting watch, but there’s just one thing – it is narrated by a horrendously fake and cringeworthy Irish accent.

Think Tom Cruise in ‘Far and Away,’ or Kevin Spacey in ‘Ordinary Decent Criminal,’ only worse.
