In the end, it happened as was thought it would be. Floyd Mayweather Jr. put on a show in the last fight of his spectacular career.

In his return from a two-year retirement, Floyd Mayweather improved to 50-0 with a 10th-round TKO over an incredibly game Conor McGregor in their pay-per-view superfight at T-Mobile Arena. Conor McGregor didn’t do so badly, either.

“I gave the fans what they wanted to see,” Mayweather jr said after the fight. “I told them that I owed them for the Pacquiao fight. I must come straight ahead and give them a show.”

In the 10th round of a surprisingly competitive fight, Mayweather backed McGregor onto the ropes with a series of rights and lefts. McGregor’s face was completely bloodied. He was about to fall through the ropes, and the referee stepped in to stop the fight with 1:55 remaining in the round.

It was a smashing end to a career that earned Mayweather more money than any fighter before him — including an estimated $200 million for his last bout.

“This was my last fight tonight ladies and gentlemen, for sure,” Mayweather said.


Mayweather jr declared the fight was not going to go the distance, and he delivered on that promise. Things went just the way most pundits said they would. McGregor had no way of connecting cleanly with Mayweather. He landed a few touch punches but nothing solid the entire fight. And given that U.F.C. fights are much shorter than boxing matches, McGregor’s stamina was in question. And he certainly tired in the late rounds as Mayweather made easy work of him.

McGregor’s challenge of Mayweather was fueled by social media and turned into a spectacle as the two fighters promoted the bout. It figured to make him $100 million or so, and gave McGregor a name and brand outside of the UFC.

He also got some respect from a fighter who has been in the ring his entire life.

Floyd Mayweather Jr., the face of boxing for more than a decade, punctuated a stellar yet controversial career with a technical knockout over U.F.C. champ and first-time boxer Conor McGregor on Saturday night.
