Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor

Mayweather and Mcgregor's fight will be shown in cells

But there were revelations in the southpaw's post-fight press conference which suggested he may have been underprepared.

"I could have easily outboxed Conor McGregor, counterpunched him all night", Mayweather said. "I'd buy that PPV in a heartbeat".

So basically, who do you like in Mayweather vs. McGregor II? This was McGregor's first boxing match, but his UFC record stands at 21-3, with 18 KO's. Still, he gets to laugh all the way to the bank.

Mayweather landed more punches than McGregor, 130-60, in rounds six through 10 after McGregor had a 51-40 edge in the first five rounds. He's a mixed-martial artist where he goes in and he fights and he uses all of his weapons.

I'm sorry, other than knocking out Victor Ortiz in 2011 with a somewhat legal sucker shot when Ortiz didn't protect himself when broken apart by the referee, Mayweather hadn't stopped an opponent since Ricky Hatton in 2007, a full 10 years. And, strangely enough, ultimately satisfying.

And while Vegas wasn't buzzing the way it did for Mayweather-Pacquiao two years ago, Mayweather-McGregor made boxing look good for a change, arguably giving fans their money's worth, when so many signs pointed to the opposite.

Meanwhile, singer Imelda May, who sang the Irish national anthem before the fight, apologised to fans for cancelling a gig at the last minute when McGregor invited her to sing.

He said breaking the Grand Alliance of the JD-U, RJD and Congress in Bihar was a betrayal of people of Bihar and their mandate. Yadav said, "I have been invited to the rally".

"There was a lot of disrespect and disregard for my skill", claimed the UFC star. 'You won't see me in the ring no more.

Team McGregor, despite all coming from MMA backgrounds, had opted not to bring in a boxing coach to prepare their charge because they thought the boxing world had little to offer given Mayweather was undefeated. He obliged because he loves the attention.

We already know that he's got a cinema-release documentary on the horizon, and now we know that he's also looking at extending into the alcohol market with his own brand of whiskey. "I didn't have to come back" said Mayweather.

"Any guy that's calling me out, forget it", said Mayweather.

"This is my last fight for sure". He was adamant, in fact.

The 25-year-old, who sang "Sorry Not Sorry" during the VMAs, told Renee she was all about focusing on the vocals. But I was the better man tonight. Better than Manny Ever since the fight was announced in June the boxing community dismissed it as a farce and a freak show.

When asked if he would box again, McGregor said, "I don't know". "But I'm not a damn fool". "I'll see what's what".
