>> After ten amazing rounds of boxing, Floyd Mayweather walks away a historic figure from the sport. I'm Phillip O'Connor for Reuters in Las Vegas, where one man is walking away with the money belt tonight and that's Floyd Mayweather. Even more importantly than that, he's got what he really wanted all along, Rocky Marciano went 49 fights undefeated, Floyd has now broken that record by going 50 fights undefeated.
00:00:21
It doesn't matter that it was a boxing novice, all that the history books will show are those 50 victories. How did McGregor do? He hung on for ten rounds, I don't think anybody expected him to go the distance with Floyd Mayweather. He managed to cover his boxing deficiencies very, very well throughout the fight but ultimately, he got too tired and when that happens, Floyd Mayweather's gonna pick you off.
00:00:40
What comes after this? Floyd is going to go into retirement but for Conor McGregor, his options remain open. He put in a credible performance here at the T Mobile arena and it's up to him whether he wants to continue in boxing, in mixed martial arts, or in both.
00:00:53
It's gonna be a problematic evening here for the bookmakers here in Las Vegas, the favorite won and he won big, so there's gonna be a lot of money lost here. But the bars around town, the tills are gonna be ringing here. The Irish are gonna be out in force partying, so it's gonna be a great night here.
00:01:05
So both for the city of Las Vegas, for the sport of boxing, and for MMA, I think everybody was a winner right here.
