September 5, 2017 1:59 pm by Russell Ess

What has been trending to be the richest fight in the history of combat sports lived up to the hype for many as Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor put it all on the line in their boxing match.

McGregor showed that he could compete with Mayweather, who many consider the greatest boxer of this generation and one of the best of all time as he caught “Money” with some clean shots throughout their fight. It has been a tough task to do as not many of Mayweather’s boxing world champion opponents were able to find Floyd at the end of their gloves. While Mayweather was much more aggressive than he has been in his previous fights, it doesn’t deny the fact that “The Notorious” was able to land some nice punches one of the greatest defensive boxers the world has seen.

In this video, we get an inside look at the reactions and advice of the corners and family of both McGregor and Mayweather throughout their contest that lasted 10 rounds before referee Robert Byrd called an end to the fight.

Mayweather said after the fight that their gameplan was to let McGregor throw his punches as they predicted he would tire out in the later rounds, which is exactly what happened. As Mayweather began to turn up the offense as the rounds went on, the dynamic of the fight shifted as seen by the reactions of Mayweather’s and McGregor’s corners, family, and friends.

In the end, the massively hyped fight brought a lot of energy and excitement to fight fans around the world. With Floyd Mayweather retired once again, now with the 50-0 record, Conor McGregor is expected to bring more entertainment for his audience back in the Octagon.
