Talking Floyd Mayweather Jr’s MMA Flirtation With Lotierzo – On August 24, 2017, a unique fight took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Floyd Mayweather battled Conor McGregor for a title specifically made for the match, the “WBC Money Belt”.
Mayweather won via TKO in the 10th round, surpassing Rocky Marciano and setting the record for the longest unbeaten streak in a professional career at 50–0. In the opening round, Mayweather, as per previous fights, started slow to work out McGregor’s tactics. By the fourth round, Conor began to tire and breathe heavily with his mouth open. Mayweather started to take control and landed with his right hands. By round 9, McGregor had almost nothing left. Although he didn’t look hurt, he was very fatigued and his face started showing redness. In round 10, with McGregor barely on his feet after a few unanswered punches, the referee waved the fight off.
This was supposedly Mayweather’s last ring appearance, but it seems he wants to come back. Floyd talked to Showtime’s Jim Gray at the network’s April 7 boxing card and said: “Retirement has been great but as you know and everyone knows, I go in retirement and I come back. It is possible I do come back, but if I do come back, it has to be in the Octagon”
