Floyd Mayweather Jr. came out of retirement to fight Conor McGregor to enter into the Boxing fame history and he did it in a really big way by defeating the UFC champion last night. Mayweather Jr. kept to his strategy that he told us earlier during the week he would use. That was to let McGregor tire himself out in the first 3 rounds. After that Mayweather literally step up his game and started to pound Conor. When ‘The Notorious’ began to tire out ‘Money’ pounced on him and at want point had McGregor wobbling trying to keep on his feet. In the 10th round the match was declared for Mayweather Jr. by TKO.
