After months of hype, numerous press conferences and a catalogue of McGregor one-liners that are sure to be repeated in Irish pubs for years to come, one of most highly anticipated fights in boxing history took place in the early hours of this morning.
Boxing and MMA fans across the globe joined forces to revel is the mega money sporting event that saw an undefeated Floyd Mayweather take on Conor McGregor in the ring.
Although Mayweather cemented his legacy as on of the greatest boxers of all time after winning by TKO in the 10th round, Twitter praised both fighters for the mutual respect they showed after the stoppage, and though some fans were left disappointed by the final result, it seems like everyone enjoyed watching.
