WATCH: Mayweather-McGregor 30-second highlights
Last Updated: 27/08/17 9:10am
In the end it was the result we all expected, but Floyd Mayweather had to go to work for his record 50th win in the ring.
Conor McGregor had been written off by many a judge as a novice and potential one-round wonder after crossing codes from MMA to take on boxing's self-proclaimed Best Ever.
What we saw was Mayweather drawn into a proper scrap for the first time in recent memory as McGregor started well and stayed in there until the 10th round.
Boxing nous told ultimately, of course, and Mayweather's 50-0 retiring record puts him out there on his own among the sport's great world champions.

Conner kept it interesting but he was outboxed and outclassed in the square ring. Nothing to be ashamed of tho. I like him even more now! 👍🏾— Lennox Lewis (@LennoxLewis) August 27, 2017
