Floyd Mayweather has defeated U.F.C. champ Conor McGregor Sunday Morning in the 10th round by technical knockout in Las Vegas with the referee having to save the Irish challenger from further punishment.
Boxing pundits never expected the fight to go the distance, but McGregor lived up to his promise to shock the boxing world.
McGregor has never boxed professionally before the fight and has won 21 of 24 MMA fights, but in the end, Mayweather was just too good and now has a 50-0 record.
The fight which was delayed because of pay-per-view issues started 5.14 am but the end came early in the 10th round. Mayweather attacked again and referee Robert Byrd dived in to save McGregor from any more punishment.
Conor McGregor had control of the first three rounds, doing most of the footwork, with his more experienced opponent Mayweather being overly cautious.
Tides changed in the 4th round as McGregor appeared to have tired himself out.
In round eight McGregor already looked like a man whose energy had been sapped out of him, and his punches did not cause even a flinch of pain from Mayweather, who appeared to be toying with his opponent at that moment.
