Ever heard the saying “empty barrels make the loudest noise”? Nothing rings truer now after the most anticipated boxing match of the year ended with Conor McGregor face down after daring to enter the ring with undefeated boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather.
The pay-per-view super fight which held at T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas marked the end of Mayweather’s stellar career with a record of 50 fights and no loss.
The match which was stopped by the referee at the 10th round when it was clear McGregor couldn’t take any more punches saw McGregor give a good fight at the beginning – landing punches and getting blows in but as the match progressed, McGregor quickly got exhausted giving Mayweather the upper hand.
At the very end, Mayweather began throwing punches at McGregor’s face and body and with McGregor looking helpless reaching for the ring and not even trying to throw a punch in his defence, the referee had no choice but to stop the match, making Floyd Mayweather yet again an undefeated champion.
Speaking after the match McGregor blamed his loss on fatigue and Mayweather’s composure.
“He’s not that fast, he’s not that powerful, but boy, is he composed,” McGregor said. He added, “I was just a little fatigued. He was a lot more composed, especially in the later rounds.”
