The mega hyped Money Fight – between WBC legend Floyd Mayeather Jr. and UFC phenom Conor McGregor – ended with Mayweather over McGregor with a TKO in the tenth round. McGregor fared better and lasted longer than many expected against the undefeated boxing phenom in a boxing match. Both put on an entertaining spectacle.

Coverage:

    Future hall of famer Floyd Mayweather got his 50th win at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Saturday night, but in his final prizefight, he got a fight from UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor, who gave quite the account of himself in his first professional boxing match before getting stopped in the tenth round.

    “He’s a lot better than I thought he was,” the 40-year-old Mayweather said. “He used different angles and he was a tough competitor, but I was the better man tonight.”

    “I thought I took the early rounds pretty handy,” McGregor said. “He had to change his style and fair play to him, he did. He adjusted. He’s composed. He’s not that fast, he’s not that powerful, but boy is he composed in there. I’ve got to give him nothing but respect.”

    Both earned that respect in the culmination of a long buildup that captivated fans around the globe, yet did what few bouts of this nature do, and that’s live up to the hype…

    …A big opportunity for McGregor was lost early in round nine, as a body shot that rocked Mayweather was called a low blow by Byrd. And while Mayweather let McGregor fire off shots for a spell, it was only to open up the tiring Dubliner for several heavy blows that put McGregor in serious trouble.

    One round later, Mayweather closed the show, with several hard right hands rocking McGregor and sending him into the ropes. “The Notorious” one didn’t go down, but Byrd ultimately had seen enough, halting the fight at 1:05 of the tenth stanza.

    “Our game plan was to take our time, go to him, let him shoot all his heavy shots early and then take him out at the end, down the stretch,” said Mayweather, who led by scores of 89-81, 89-82, 87-83 at the time of the stoppage.

    “I had a bit of fun over on this side,” McGregor said of his move from Octagon to ring. “I thought it was close, though, and I thought it was a little early on the stoppage. I get like that when I’m tired. I get a little wobbly and floaty, but get me in the corner and I’ll recover and come back. There’s a lot on the line here. He should have let me keep going, but fair play to him.”
