Showtime calls Mayweather-McGregor massive success

For more details, it is fitting that we start our report with the visiting athlete.

As Variety previously reported, the fight also yielded 239 illegal live-streamed rebroadcasts online, reaching an estimated 2.93 million viewers worldwide, according to content-security vendor Irdeto.

"I would like to believe him, but as a physician and former ringside doctor, I believe the fight was stopped for his own safety", added O'Carroll.

Despite this, the mega fight is expected to break records for pay per view sales, gate takings and total revenue.

"Let's get through Mayweather first", White replied.

They let the 30-year-old know in no uncertain terms that it was a bit rich of him to poke fun seeing as McGregor knocked him out in 13 seconds at UFC 194 in 2015. I asked for it at the exact same weight. And while Waterson said she'd "love for McGregor to win" and "wouldn't put it past [him]", she continued, "on any given day, anyone can get rocked".

At 29 and at his physical peak, he seems open to any upcoming bouts, whether in the ring or the octagon. However, in all of boxing, no one has embraced the money as much as Mayweather has.

Among the mostly positive feedback from the MMA community after Conor McGregor's display in his loss to Floyd Mayweather, some of the lightweight champ's UFC peers stood out for somewhat saltier responses.

Speculators Bet Samsung Will Turn to Lee's Sister to Take Charge
Lee, who was represented by a team of 28 lawyers, has always professed his innocence and will appeal the sentence. Other former Samsung executives charged with Lee were also found guilty.

The bout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor became the biggest ever financial gains for the fighters.

Mayweather, who pressed hard against a gassed McGregor beginning in Round 6, also recorded a huge edge in the power department and posted a 58-25 percent edge in power punching. It can be marketed as good versus evil or the righteous against the wicked.

McGregor had some success early on against a watchful Mayweather, but the MMA superstar ultimately proved no match in a ring for boxing's self-proclaimed Best Ever.

Earlier in the evening, the match had been delayed due to PPV issues.

EXPERT OPINION. Ed Tolentino is a lawyer by profession, boxing expert by recreation.

Speaking about the Mayweather vs McGregor fight, Triple H pointed out how Floyd time and again credits "personality" for selling fights more than the lure of the actual fight itself. However, Mayweather had a plan and walked through McGregor's punches like they were nothing. The novelty is gone, but the interest will be on the exciting, aggressive style Pacquiao offers. Instead, the two traded barbs after Diaz took the ex-fighter to task over his prediction that McGregor would win multiple rounds against Mayweather and go the distance, two things he failed to do.

And like only he can, Ed swung a devilish left hook that almost topped me off my swivel chair. So Floyd will make about $300 million and Conor about $100 million. You didn't get rattled; you made three game changes during the fight and that's what a true champion does.
