Mayweather defeats McGregor in TKO win; announces retirement
A quintessential Floyd Mayweather defeated mixed martial arts champion, Conor McGregor through a 10th round technical knock-out, thereby solidifying the American legacy and hopefully inducting him into the hall of fame after winning 50 out of 50 fights in his professional career. He has insisted this would be his last fight.
Prior to the fight, Mayweather had promised his fans an early finish to the 12-bout contest, and lived up to his promise when he curried the Irish man to the ropes and blantantly pummelled him before Robert Bryd, the referee stepped in to stop the boxing match. Mayweather’s win now surpasses Rocky Marciano’s 49 – 0 record.
As soon as the pay-per-view numbers come in, we will be able to ascertain if this fight (Mayweather vs McGregor) is the richest of all-time. About 14,623 spectators were at the T-Mobile Arena and part away with big money just to watch this fight. Certainly, this fight will not be included on any list of great boxing fights.
