Floyd Mayweather Victors again as he stop Conor McGregor in 10th Round of 'The Money Fight'
The heavily favored Mayweather (50-0 boxing) moved his record to a perfect 50-0 in what he said was his actual retirement fight. McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC, 0-1 boxing) lost his professional boxing debut – but lasted much longer than most critics said he was likely to go against the 21-year boxing veteran.
“He’s a lot better than I thought he was,” Mayweather said afterward. “He’s a tough competitor, but I was the better man tonight. Our game plan was to take our time, go to him, let him shoot all his heavy shots early, then take him out down the stretch.”
McGregor lamented the stoppage by referee Robert Byrd when he was interviewed and said he was merely fatigued and wobbly and wished if he was going to lose by TKO, Byrd would’ve let him hit the ground, not be stopped getting punched against the ropes.
From round four, Mayweather turned this fight on its head and what a relief it must be for him because McGregor, with the little boxing ring experience he has, did give him something to think about during the fight.
'Mayweather's smile is one of relief'
It has been a truly astonishing night. I thought my enjoyment of the fight week will have ended last night but we have had a truly memorable Vegas fight night from two remarkable men.
Boxing skills are like the elastic in your socks, you'll always have them. Mayweather did try to give us the Mayweather of old but his smile is one of relief as much as celebration.
