Floyd Mayweather KNOCKOUT Conor McGregor in 10th round (knockout punch)
Floyd Mayweather legacy is secure. The Las Vegas sportsbooks’ money is safe, too.
Despite UFC star Conor McGregor’s never-ending string of guarantees to knock out the undefeated legend in his first professional boxing match, Mayweather predictably maintained his perfect record after scoring a 10th round TKO win in the massively hyped non-title, junior middleweight bout at T-Mobile Arena.
Returning to the ring for the first time since defeating Andre Berto nearly two years ago, the 40-year-old Mayweather (50-0, 26 KOs), now is expected to retire for good after surpassing Rocky Marciano’s revered 49-0 mark and reportedly earning more than $200 million to fight the brash and inexperienced Irishman, who also collected a nine-figure payday, for an event touted to set numerous revenue and viewership records.
