Floyd Mayweather improved his professional boxing record to a perfect 50-0 last weekend in Las Vegas by defeating a very game Conor McGregor via tenth-round TKO.

The Mayweather vs McGregor fight ended up being much more competitive then a lot of people assumed it would be.

Conor McGregor actually looked great in the opening four rounds of his fight with Mayweather.

The Irish superstar was able to connect with over 100 punches during the course of the fight but ultimately slowed down in the later rounds which allowed Mayweather to take over.

Mayweather would unload a barrage of punches on “Mystic Mac” in round ten which forced the referee to step in and stop the contest.

Prior to the fight being stopped in round ten, many people had Floyd Mayweather just slightly ahead of Conor McGregor on their respective scoreboards.

The general consensus seemed to be that Conor had won the first three rounds and maybe even round four.

With that said, two of the ringside judges in Las Vegas saw the opening rounds much differently.

Check out the judges scorecards below:

Even in defeat, Conor McGregor’s stock did nothing but grow following his first professional boxing match.

Undefeated boxing legend Floyd “Money” Mayweather (49-0) will return to the squared circle this weekend against current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor.

The McGregor vs Mayweather bout, which takes place August 26 in Las Vegas, could wind up being the biggest fight in combat sports history.

One of the most intriguing stories leading up to Saturday’s massive pay-per-view event has surrounded former two-weight boxing champ Paul Malignaggi, who was brought in by the McGregor camp as a sparring partner.

“The Magic Man” and “Mystic Mac” had a very public fall out, this after someone’s in McGregor’s camp leaked unflattering images of Paulie which were taken during his aforementioned sparring sessions with Conor.

Current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor will take his talents to the squared circle tomorrow night in Las Vegas when he throws down with undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.

The Mayweather vs McGregor “super fight” could potentially end up being the biggest fight in combat sports history.

Saturday night’s pay-per-view event is expected to do huge numbers and as a result both Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor will earn massive guaranteed paydays.

ESPN’s Brett Okamoto recently revealed both Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather’s guaranteed fight purses on Twitter:

“Disclosed, guaranteed purse amounts for tomorrow: Floyd Mayweather $100 million, Conor McGregor $30 million. Both will ultimately make more.” – Brett Okamoto – August 25/17

Of course both Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor could potentially earn much more depending on the success of the pay-per-view event.

Conor McGregor was last seen in combat at November’s UFC 205 event in New York, where he earned a second-round knockout victory over Eddie Alvarez to become the UFC’s undisputed lightweight champion of the world.

As for Floyd Mayweather, “Money” has not competed inside the squared circle in over two years. In his most recent appearance Mayweather earned a unanimous decision victory over Andre Berto.

Current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor has made a fortune by destroying opponents with his brutal left hand.

Alvarez is not the only opponent to get put away by McGregor’s nasty left hand. Fellow UFC standouts Jose Aldo, Chad Mendes, Dustin Poirier, Marcus Brimage and Dennis Siver have all fallen to the iron left hand of “The Notorious”.

McGregor will face his stiffest challenge to date next weekend when he makes his professional boxing debut opposite undefeated legend Floyd “Money” Mayweather.

If Conor is to defy the odds and emerge victorious against Mayweather on August 26 he will surely need to do so by utilizing his lightning-quick left hand.
