    Was there ever any doubt? Mayweather on top. I must say it went longer than I thought it would.

    Post fight Mayweather said he bet it to go over 9 1/2 rounds. So, there you go.

    But after the match did either one look like they had been in a 10 round "fight" ?

    The entire fight was a pre-planned screwing of the sports world in my opinion. I've seen every Connor Magregor MMA fight and he always punches with bad intentions. He seldom even rared back to throw a punch last night. He just pecked and pawed at Mayweather all night, as though he had no intentions of winning or hurting Mayweather.
    I think that the entire thing was a money grab.
    Boxing has a history of corruption and guys "taking a fall", and that's what I witnessed last night.
    If Boxing was trying to gain new fans, they failed miserably.

    It shouldn't have even been stopped in my opinion. I've seen Magregor take some serious punishment, and he was nowhere near that last night.
    The entire fight was fixed in my opinion.

    Yep. That's just it, the rounds weren't hard fought. MacGregor is usually possessed when in the ring, but he had no killer instinct like he usually does.
    I'm very disappointed.

    Hardly a blemish on either fighter, that says it all. Looked more like a staged money grab to me. Over-hyped.

    I don't think it should have been stopped yet either. Only because I wanted to see him get knocked out. And that was gonna happen within the next 30 seconds

    I agree. For what people paid to see that fight, they deserved to have the fight finished with a definite outcome. Not that I wanted to see Magregor hurt, but I wanted to see if he could have recovered, or I wanted to see him knocked out. It looked more like a pillow fight than a boxing match.

    That about sums it up.

    Mayweather probably wanted money and a big audience to see him tie Marciano in wins...and this whole showboating did it.

    10 rounds with Mayweather in your first boxing match is impressive.........Now let's see Mayweather sign a rematch in the Octagon...Not gonna happen.

    For the money that either of these two received for this fake fight, I'd be will to accept two black eyes, a broken nose, and kick to the gonads.
