Floyd Mayweather beats UFC icon Conor McGregor in Las Vegas fight



Floyd Mayweather beat UFC icon Conor McGregor with a 10th-round stoppage in their much-hyped fight in Las Vegas.

Mayweather, who came out of retirement for the fight, now has a record of 50-0 - surpassing heavyweight great Rocky Marciano's 49-0 record for most wins without a loss or draw.

Mayweather lands a stinging shot on his Irish opponent

Mixed martial arts champion McGregor, who was making his professional boxing debut, failed to pull off what might have been the greatest upset in combat sports history.


But the former apprentice plumber from Dublin made the fight much more compelling than most experts had predicted at the T-Mobile Arena.


McGregor made a brave and spirited start but his 40-year-old opponent dominated from the fourth round.


The end came with a weary McGregor doubled over on the ropes as Mayweather landed two hard left hooks in the 10th.
