Mayweather Knocks out Conor McGregor in 10th round

Las Vegas: Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather extended his perfect career record to 50 fights unbeaten after stopping UFC Champion and professional boxing debut-ant Conor McGregor in the 10th round at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena in one of the richest bouts in boxing history.

“He was a lot better than I thought….. but I was the better man. I guaranteed everybody this would not go the distance.” – MayWeather.

McGregor started the fight with a fathomable performance in the first three rounds, delivering a crisp uppercut in round one though he edged close to breaking the rules with several punches to the back of the head.

However, the Black American boxing superstar who came out of retirement for a potential $300m pay day executed a game plan which pounced on McGregor’s lack of conditioning for the late rounds which prove so key on big fight nights. As Connor tired, Mayweather upped his ferocity and by round 6, ‘Mr Money’ had began to stalk his opponent whose legs were weakening under more successful shots.

In 10th when the Irish man was in the ropes and offering little, the fight was over as Mayweather was throwing rapidly leaving his opponent too vulnerable which forced Referee Robert Byrd to stop it to call on the biggest upset in the history of the sport to 29-year-oldr.

By the stoppage of the fight, Mc Gregor was already down on the cards by 89-81 89-82 87-83 on the ringside cards.
