Floyd Mayweather reached a perfect 50-0 record Saturday night after defeating Conor McGregor.
Mayweather played his usual game and fighting style to lock up the victory in the tenth round. His defensive tactics were too much for UFC superstar McGregor to overcome.

Mayweather entered the fight as the heavy favorite, and it was clear why once the fight started. Despite McGregor’s elite fighting ability, he did not even have close to the skills in the boxing ring to make it close.
