26th of August saw the fight of the Century take place at Las Vegas as David and Goliath clashed against each other. Two of the greatest fighters in sports entertainment going by the name of Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather and Conor McGregor locked horns in the boxing ring. Mayweather, an iconic boxer, boasted of an incredible record of 49-0 as he came into the match against UFC Champion Conor McGregor, who has been a destructive force inside the octagon.
Though McGregor started off the match on the offensive ending the first few rounds with the lead, it was the undefeated Mayweather who won the match via TKO in 10 rounds. With the historic win, Mayweather went on to take his record to an unbelievable 50-0 and remains undefeated in the four corners.
The main story:
There was an unthinkable amount of hype building up to the match as the world was divided into two parts -Team Mayweather and Team McGregor. However, India skipper Virat Kohli was supporting Conor McGregor, who is nicknamed ‘The Notorious’. Though the UFC fighter lost the match, fans all over the world hailed him for moving out of his forte and stepping into the boxing ring with an experienced and valiant fighter like Mayweather.
Virat Kohli was quick to send a message for Mcgregor, who not only fought but lasted 10 rounds against Mayweather. Kohli took to his official Twitter account and hailed the gutsy effort from Conor and termed him as a legend. He also praised the unbelievable self-confidence that McGregor possesses.
Mayweather himself admitted that it was a very tough fight and Conor McGregor turned out to be much better than what Mayweather thought him to be. It was indeed an extraordinary effort from a man who has never boxed professionally to not only fight but take the lead at one point in time. He fell victim to fatigue which allowed Mayweather to pull the trigger in the later stages of the match.
To all those who said @TheNotoriousMMA won't even last 1 round, he went through 10!!!! A legend & an epitome of self belief. Hats off man ?
