During the fight, the ‘Notorious’ was outperformed by Mayweather, who made it look very easy. Ultimately, Mayweather managed to halt the fight in the 10th round. This victory extended his record to 50 wins and 0 losses in what would be his last professional match.

Recently, McGregor posted clips from Mayweather’s impressive victory over Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in September 2013. The Irishman commended his rival for delivering an outstanding performance against the fighter. McGregor, aged 35, also hinted at a potential rematch with Mayweather while drawing a comparison to Canelo.

He wrote, “One of the greatest performances in Professional Boxing this was. I landed more shots on Floyd than Canelo. I’d love another go.” McGregor might need to check the stats again as he landed 111 punches on ‘Money’ during the course of ten rounds, which was a commendable achievement but fell just short of the 117 punches that Alvarez connected with in his twelve-round fight a few years earlier.
