"You won't see me in the ring anymore", Mayweather said.
Oscar De La Hoya had some harsh things to say about Floyd Mayweather's boxing match against UFC champion Conor McGregor, but now that the spectacle is over, he's relieved to not be bracing for a backlash from pay-per-view buyers.
Loeffler and De La Hoya are both grateful that most casual sports fans seemed to enjoy Mayweather's 10th-round stoppage victory: The unusual fight appeared to be competitive, and it largely entertained people who don't watch every big fight.
While frustrated with the stoppage, McGregor gave praise to his undefeated opponent. "This sucks we're going through this over and over again".
McGregor out-punched his foe early in the bout, landing 51 total punches to Mayweather's 40 in the first five rounds.
Diaz is likely referring to the tickets he got to the event and how it didn't come from the UFC. Referees are instructed to stop a fight one punch sooner, rather than later, and that is exactly what Robert Byrd did Saturday night, even if it's what fans and the fighters didn't want.
Valiant in his challenge, McGregor was eventually overpowered by the experience that allowed Mayweather go 49 previous bouts unbeaten. "Tonight I chose the right dance partner to dance with".
Golovkin judged that McGregor "should go back to the UFC ... he's not a boxer".
Fight promoters and the Showtime network also hired the world's leading cyber security experts and legal teams on standby in the biggest crackdown on internet piracy for a major sporting event. To be able to last as long as he did, he's a very tough competitor.
"This is one of the most pirated, if not the most pirated boxing matches we have ever seen", Mark Mulready, an Irdeto vice president of cyber services, said in a statement Monday.
Mayweather had an appearance of his own to make at his new strip club, where he held meet-andgreets the entire week of the fight.
