The Money Fight
Last August 26, 2017, two of the best and most popular athletes locked horn in an epic boxing match at T-mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather took on the UFC star Conor McGregor in a bout dubbed as the Money Fight.
The Notorious, who made his debut in professional boxing, started strong in the match, only to falter in the middle rounds. As the Irish star began losing his rhythm, Mayweather saw the perfect opportunity to display his dominance over his challenger.
In the tenth round, Mayweather launched a barrage of strikes to finish McGregor and earned the 50th victory of his boxing career. For Conor, it was the last professional bout he stepped into before facing tough battles outside the ring and the cage.
