Mayweather beats McGregor with a 10th round stoppage

Some quotes from the winner Floyd Mayweather. He said: “He is a tough competitor and we gave them what the fans wanted to see – I owed them for the Manny Pacquiao fight.

“He (McGregor) was a lot better than I thought, he was a tough competitor, but I was the better man tonight. Our game plan was to take our time, let him shoot his heavy shots and take him out at the end.

“In the MMA he fights 25 minutes really hard and after 25 minutes he starts to slow down. I guaranteed everybody this would not go the difference. Boxing’s reputation was on the line.”

On his record of 50-0, beating Rocky Marciano’s record of 49-0, Mayweathe added: “Rocky Marciano is a legend and I look forward to going into the hall of fame one day.

“This was my last fight tonight, ladies and gentleman for sure. I chose the right dance partner to dance partner. Conor McGregor you are a hell of a champion,”
