The fight of the year is complete. After a slow start, Floyd Mayweather rallied and defeated Conor McGregor in a 10th round TKO.
The first three rounds belonged to McGregor, getting a point in each. But then Mayweather found a groove and started to land some big punches. He went from losing the first three rounds to winning the next four. The 8th round was extremely close, the type of round that could have swung the outcome in a judge’s decision. But the ninth round was all Mayweather and he finished McGregor quickly in Round 10.
