Ultimately, he took his usual risk-averse strategy in the opening rounds, not throwing a meaningful punch until 55 seconds into the fight. 'You won't see me in the ring no more.

I'm going to take over the market and this is delicious!

In the end, Mayweather hit McGregor 170 times and McGregor landed 111 punches, but several of McGregor's jabs were off the back of Mayweather's head.

"We know in the MMA he fights 25 minutes real hard and after that he starts to slow down".

"I could've easily outboxed Conor McGregor, counterpunched him all night", he said.

Boxing will move forward, trying to show fans that the sport is strong on its own and doesn't necessarily need interlopers from other disciplines to help stage compelling fights. "(Mayweather) was a lot more composed, especially in the later parts of the fight".

"I took the early rounds fairly handy", McGregor said.

This is a fight that never should have happened.

"I think it is important we all raise our voices for things that are important, like equality", Demi said.

"I would rather he did not (box again)", White said.

Conor McGregor enhanced his brand with his showing because he's tough, smart and was in with the ideal guy from the standpoint of extending the bout.

The North American Aerospace Command (NORAD) determined the missiles "did not pose a threat to North America". The projectiles were launched at 06:49 on Saturday (21:49 GMT Friday), South Korea's Defence Ministry said.

McGregor put up a great showing. Mayweather controlled the next three rounds, and it was close to an even fight through six.

Silly question, especially if your name is Floyd Mayweather. Money Spinner Mayweather is also expected to be around $200 million wealthier, taking his career earnings to around $1 billion.

"I turned him into a Mexican tonight", McGregor said. "LeBron James was on my row and I could see Leonardo DiCaprio".

Asked the difference between MMA and boxing, he shouted out, "the cheque".

Mayweather, happy in retirement, eventually came around, and the public ate it up. Offensively, Mayweather's right hand was his only offensive weapon. Which leads me to the next landmark moment...

Last night's mega-bout between Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Conor McGregor surprised some critics not because of the final outcome, but because McGregor managed to battle with the tactical Mayweather into a tenth round.

The elation he could scarcely mask at the end of the fight was indicative of the fact that he won in nearly every possible way on Saturday night: his reputation was intact, he was relatively unscathed save for some superficial bruising, his adoring fans still cheered him as a hero, he proved some people wrong, and he made north of US$100 million.

My intuition before the bout suggested Mayweather was the ideal boxer for McGregor to go rounds with and not get humiliated by.

With a nine-figure sum to add to his wallet from defeating McGregor, they little bit more he earned from the five-figure bet could be a drop in the ocean in Maywather's earnings. In many ways the fight was a "Sting" and nothing more.

It's also one of the biggest victories ever for Fathom Events, which partnered with Mayweather Productions in beaming the boxing match into cinemas. Luckily Mayweather ended the fight emphatically and the scoring never mattered.
