The face of boxing for over a decade now, Floyd Mayweather Jr. returned to the ring early this morning in the highly publicized fight against U.F.C champ and first-time boxer Conor McGregor.
The fight was surprisingly well-matched but Mayweather was eventually too much for McGregor and by the 10th round had him backed on the ropes with a series of rights and lefts. MrGregor’s face was bloodied and he was just about to fall off the ring when the referee stepped in to stop the fight with 1:55 to go in the round.
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.
