Some people call Conor McGregor VS. Floyd Mayweather the fight of the century, which is debatable. Most people were rooting for Floyd Mayweather because Conor McGregor is cocky, arrogant, and egotistical. Mayweather is the better boxer all around. People thought that Conor McGregor was going to win because he was a little bit bigger and very much younger, but Mayweather knew that he was going to use his amazing boxing skills to win. Mayweather won TKO in round 10 with 1:05 on the clock.

Their was many bets, most of them on the “underdog” Conor McGregor, six of the bets were over $1,000,000 and they were on Mayweather so these 6 people made a lot of money that night. Conor McGregor has never fought in a boxing ring so he das almost no skill inside of the squared circle.This was the biggest fight for both of their careers but Mayweather came out on top being a huge upset for all the McGregor fans and McGregor himself even though he made $100,000,000 off of the fight. Their was a lot of controversy over the fight; people said that it was rigged for mayweather to win.

The fight was set at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and the bell rung at 12:00 AM Eastern Time. The card for that night had many fights but everyone was anticipating the main card. Conor McGregor fought hard, practiced, and worked day and night for the fight and lasted 10 rounds against a boxing champion but was just off of the win. I thought the fight was fair and Mayweather won hands down, but I can see why people would think it was rigged because Mayweather was 49-0 and what would be the chances of Conor McGregor winning also Las Vegas would profit way more if Mayweather won the fight off of all the bets. Conor McGregor was trying to get Mayweather mad and not keep his cool but Mayweather was the better man and was cool until the bell rang. Floyd Mayweather landed way more punches than Conor Mcgregor in the last round and that’s what got Floyd the win over “Notorious.”   Floyd “Money” Mayweather kept his cool after all of Conor “Notorious” McGregor`s childish acts and came out on top, won, and retired 50-0. Mayweather has donated thousands of dollars to charities such as the cure for breast cancer, Habitat for Humanity, and food banks. Hours after the fight that Mayweather won he went and played a charity basketball game. Floyd Mayweather is the best boxer of all time and has beat some of the greats like Saul Alvarez, Diego Corrales, and Miguel Cotto. Mayweather is a very nice guy he once said “I know that there’s a god because I was able to survive everything that I’ve been through – all of the tough times – and I’m still at the top of my game.” Floyd Mayweather will go down as a Hall of Famer, a champion, and the greatest of all time.
