Floyd Mayweather delivered in the biggest fight of the year, defeating Conor McGregor and extending his perfect career record to 50-0.

While¬†boxing experts didn’t give McGregor much of a chance, he put on quite a show, coming hard at McGregor and showing a stronger jab than many expected from the mixed martial artist, even taking the early rounds.

But as the fight continued, Mayweather’s experience and McGregor fatigue began to show. McGregor started moving slowly and Mayweather was quick to take advantage, pushing forward and eventually earning the win with a tenth round TKO.

After the fight, Mayweather announced that it would be his last time in the boxing ring.
