FLOYD MAYWEATHER KNOCKS OUT McGREGOR IN THE 10TH ROUND

Floyd Mayweather has defeated Conor McGregor in a TKO in Round 10 after the two men squared off in what was billed as the Fight of the Century in the highly anticipated and Hollywood-studded fight in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

After winning his 50th undefeated match, Mayweather swore it would be his last fight ever as the 40-year-old made off with the coveted ‘Money Belt’ and at least $100million for his night’s work.

The money-spinning showdown is likely to break all records and surpass the $600million generated by Mayweather’s fight with Manny Pacquiao in 2015.

‘This was my last fight tonight. For sure,’ Mayweather, heading into second retirement with a unblemished 50-0 record to surpass heavyweight legend Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 mark for most wins without a loss or draw, declared in the ring. ‘Tonight was my last fight. Tonight I chose the right dance partner to dance with.

‘Conor you are a hell of a champion. A win is a win, no matter how you get it. Rocky Marciano is a legend and I look forward to going into the Hall of Fame one day.’

The most unusual megafight in years went longer and was more competitive than many expected when an unbeaten, five-division world champion boxer took on a mixed martial artist making his pro boxing debut.

McGregor became the best-paid debutant of all time, netting a $30 million dollar purse plus a share of ticket sales, pay-per-view and merchandising revenues, along with one-off sponsorhsip deals.
