Floyd Mayweather has extended his perfect career record to 50 fights unbeaten after his victory over mixed martial arts champion Conor Mcgregor in the much anticipated crossover bout.

A ruthless Mayweather scored a 10th round technical knockout over Mcgregor cementing his legacy as one of boxing’s all-time greats.

As promised, McGregor came out full of fury and menace but Mayweather, long regarded as the finest defensive fighter to step into the ring, left few openings and used the first three rounds to feel out his opponent.

By the fourth round, Mayweather went on the attack and started landing blow after blow against a suddenly desperate McGregor who was bravely hanging on while clutching and grabbing the American but in the 10th round the referee had to step in to stop the fight.
