Floyd Mayweather stops Conor McGregor in 10th round

Updated August 26, 2017 - 10:40 pm

Las Vegan Floyd Mayweather stopped UFC star Conor McGregor in the 10th round of their super welterweight megafight at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night.

McGregor had moments of success early in his boxing debut against the undefeated five-weight world champion, but fatigue set in during the middle rounds and Mayweather finally turned it into the mismatch many expected.

It was the first fight in nearly two years for Mayweather, who improved to 50-0.

Mayweather had McGregor in trouble in the eighth round, as he stalked him around the ring landing rights at will and wobbling the MMA superstar several times.

It was more of the same the next round until referee Robert Byrd finally stepped in at the 1:05 mark as McGregor leaned against the ropes.

Also on the card, Gervonta Davis knocked out Francisco Fonseca in the ninth round and Badou Jack stopped Nathan Cleverly in the fifth round.
