In anticipation of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul fight, Showtime is taking a look back at “Money’s” 2017 fight with Conor McGregor.
McGregor had been calling for a boxing collision with Mayweather. That goal is usually easier said than done when you’re under a UFC contract. The UFC is known for being strict with their deals and not allowing fighters under contract to compete elsewhere. In this case, the UFC and Showtime worked out a deal to make it happen.
While McGregor looked confident in the early going, throwing more punches, Mayweather was simply reading his opponent. “Money” ended up applying the pressure and he stopped the “Notorious” one via 10th-round TKO.
Showtime has posted the full fight. WATCH Mayweather vs. McGregor above.
