Floyd Mayweather defeats Conor McGregor with 10th-round knockout

Floyd Mayweather is a boxing legend, and he entered his fight against Conor McGregor with a 49-0 professional boxing record. Naturally, Mayweather was the heavy favorite in his bout with McGregor, who had never competed in a professional boxing match.

Though McGregor performed better than many expected, Mayweather pulled away as the fight went on, and he claimed victory with a technical knockout in round 10.

McGregor looked gassed in the later rounds, and Mayweather really took over in rounds nine and 10, as it became evident it was not a matter of if but when Mayweather would knock McGregor out. After forcing the tired UFC star to the middle of the ring to fight, Mayweather got McGregor’s back against the ropes before knocking him out.

Some said McGregor won all of the first three rounds (the typical consensus was a 10-9 score for each of those rounds), but it was all Mayweather from there on out.

Nonetheless, McGregor earned the respect of many for his efforts.

Mayweather said after the fight McGregor was better than he expected.
