Mayweather batters McGregor, wins by TKO in round 10

Mayweather still recalls first pro pay cheque Floyd Mayweather analyses Conor McGregor's performance – what he says will surprise you

Floyd Mayweather Jr defeated mixed martial arts (MMA) star champion Conor McGregor on Sunday morning (Aug 27) through a technical knockout (TKO) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Not only is 50 wins a nice, round number, but Mayweather surpasses Rocky Marciano's famous undefeated record of 49-0. "When I ride with my billionaire buddies I don't tell them I'm glad to fly on their private planes or ride on their yachts".

Mayweather extended his record-breaking career to 50-0 at the expense of the debuting UFC superstar who was tough, but ultimately out-skilled.

Mayweather meanwhile revealed the fight had followed a tactical plan as he took his time and allowed McGregor to become tired before pouncing in the later rounds.

McGregor started running out of steam later in the fight, and Mayweather capitalized in the 10th round. "Conor McGregor looked damn good tonight to me".


The first significant punch was a slick uppercut by McGregor that answered questions about his skills and Mayweather's chin despite his two-year retirement. He pumped his fists in the air to the crowd, which cheered loudly.

Team McGregor didn't realise (or they probably did and couldn't do anything about it) that boxing requires the explosiveness in bursts, while endurance to go through 12 rounds - pacing oneself - is a prerequisite. He was greeted with a mixture of cheers and boos.

During the match, UFC Fight Pass kept offering alternate viewing options to frustrated fans who were unable tune in to the UFC TV website to watch the bout live. By midafternoon Saturday, twice as much money had been bet on the Mayweather-McGregor fight at William Hill's Nevada sportsbooks than was bet on Mayweather's 2015 bout with Manny Pacquiao. After 25 minutes (tonight) he started to slow down. "Every day we are trying to find them but it's not easy". McGregor switches from southpaw to conventional to try and fool Mayweather.

A little? McGregor was wiped out, clearly out of his league in a fight lasting this long, obviously having used up all of his energy early while Mayweather just waited to make his move.
