Floyd Mayweather has beaten U.F.C champ and first-time boxer Conor McGregor in Las Vegas, claiming his 50th victory and maintaining his unbeaten record.
McGregor had been written off before the fight, but the Irishman surprised many of his critics with a largely professional display, taking the fight to 10 rounds.
He got off to a flying start, throwing a series of punches at the 40-year-old and scoring a few early points. Displaying some theatrics, the Irishman even put his hands behind his back at one stage.
Mayweather said after the match:
I gave the fans what they wanted to see. I told them that I owed them for the Pacquiao fight. I must come straight ahead and give them a show.
The victory brings Mayweather’s career tally to 50-0, a stellar a career with 50 wins out of 50 fights with 27 of those coming form of KOs. He has tagged this fight as his career’s last and it was a truly fitting end for the champ.
