Floyd Mayweather has won the richest fight in boxing history. He won $100 million for beating Conor McGregor in Las Vegas. Thousands of people paid big money for ringside seats. Millions more around the world watched on pay-per-view sites. Boxing fans called the fight a mismatch. Mayweather is one of the greatest fighters ever. He has never lost. McGregor is a mixed martial arts fighter. It was his first professional boxing match.
Mayweather, 40, was the big favourite. He had 49 wins (including 26 knockouts) and no defeats. McGregor, 29, is the UFC lightweight world champion. The referee stopped the fight in the 10th round to save McGregor from any more punishment from Mayweather's punches. Mayweather's record is now ahead of the legendary Rocky Marciano's record. McGregor was brave, but in the end, Mayweather had greater experience and better technique.
