Floyd Mayweather Jr has beaten Conor McGregor. It took him full 10 rounds to do it, though..
McGregor had said he would knock out the undefeated boxing champion early in the game, but tonight, it was Floyd who brought experience to bear. Though he could not bring down the rookie, the ref had to save tired McGregor in the tenth round as Mayweather started to take advantage of his fatigue.
But Floyd says going on to round 10 was intentional.
“I turned him into a Mexican fighter…he fought like a Mexican.”
“I thought it was close … I get a little floppy when I get tired … Floyd was a lot more composed. You’ve got to give it to him”
