Will Mc Gregor And Mayweather Have A Rematch? A Second Fight Could Already Be In The Works

We won't know the final numbers until all the tickets are counted, but it's safe to say that the books got the result they wanted out of a night that was riskier than expected. I'll take it wrapped around the neck on live TV.

"The fact that McGregor was so awkward in the ring probably made it even harder for Mayweather at first". The biggest reported bet on McGregor was US$100,000 (€83,857). "He was coming in from another discipline, and it showed".

"He's composed. He's not that fast".

" He's a lot better than I thought he was".

Floyd Mayweather used a different style as the fight wore on. "Maybe it's due to Conor, having seen Floyd".

Mayweather wins again, but is he really 50-0?

And a high-profile sex scandal caused some sponsors to walk away from him. And he's also befriended billionaire investor Warren Buffett. The pair's hugging was compared with the best on-screen embrace, and people couldn't decide who did it better - Jack and Rose in Titanic or the boxing champions!

If pay-per-view television targets are met, the fight could become the most lucrative in history.

This was a man who seemed surprisingly happy in defeat, and why not?

The fight generated record-breaking betting at sportsbooks.

McGregor previously refused to condemn the homophobic slur.

All three judges - Dave Moretti (87-83), Burt Clements (89-82) and Guido Cavalleri (89-81) - had Mayweather ahead on the scorecards at the time of the stoppage.

McGregor backed up his 'big Irish balls' claim with his performance against Mayweather. "For sure", Mayweather said, praising his beaten opponent. "Rocky III? I'm trying to remember which one was Rocky III", McGregor said.

Afterwards McGregor, who had never boxed professionally before Saturday's bout at the T-Mobile Arena, praised Mayweather's composed demolition job.

The victory over McGregor was the culmination of a 21-year journey that took Mayweather from the grit and grime of Grand Rapids, Michigan to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas, and from childhood poverty to a billionaire lifestyle. "After 25 minutes (tonight) he started to slow down", Mayweather Jr. explained.
