"There were two different security check-points", he told An estimated $60 million was bet on Mayweather-Pacquiao. I think Floyd was in trouble on the scorecard, number one, for a while. They got a reasonably entertaining fight that settled nothing about the two sports but embarrassed neither fighter.

You can decide whether it was worth $100, but it was worth something, meant something, and represented something.

Ireland's McGregor had a superior commercial appeal to any other potential opponent, and even with Saturday's fight proving the mismatch many had long feared, Mayweather revealed it was the money involved that motivated his return.

In fact, the fight game in uniquely positioned as the perfect vessel to capitalize on this phenomenon. The big difference in this case is that the financial liability was amplified by the underdog's significant payout and ticket count. As everyone in his camp cheered and gave him a standing ovation, Mayweather walked to the back and hugged a taller man in a business suit. Which is a weird thing to say about a guy who in normal life beats women and won't pay taxes, but there you have it-in the ring, the dude is pure science. Or maybe he'll try to break free and do it on his own. "Any guy calling me out, forget it. I'm OK. I had a great career, I can't complain about anything".

And it's not in keeping with more credible estimates of his wealth.

"Last Friday I streamed Foxtel's broadcast of Mundine v Green 2 fight via my Facebook page to thousands of people".

It was another sell at the end of arguably the greatest sell in boxing history.

The big fight is over, and my goal has been achieved, to write not a word about it, nor watch it, nor, apparently, to even be awake when it began, though I do admit I enjoyed about 15 minutes of ESPN commentary when the whole enterprise was delayed because of problems with the pay-per-view feed. Before that, I just thought he was boring.

Of course Woods made plenty off the course as well, topping the $1 billion mark in 2009, a club Mayweather also joined with his earnings this weekend.

"I actually had a custom-made fur coat I was going to walk out with, but I chose to wear the Irish flag instead".

"I was sweating", Manteris admitted after the fight.

CNN reports that with his latest TKO, Mayweather is joining the "billionaire athletes club", alongside Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan. The UFC is constantly producing people to challenge in every division no matter how interested the public is.

And, who knows. He may venture back into the boxing ring someday if the price is right. And in MMA he's eventually going to lose too.

"Now I'm into the counting phase", he said. I was off by about 90 seconds.

The fight's punch statistics also go some way to explaining McGregor's exhaustion late on, despite being one of the world's most recognizable athletes.

In a result that shocked few, Floyd Mayweather Jr. defeated Conor McGregor by technical knockout before a crowd of 14,623 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday.
