Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather live: UFC star stopped in 10th round after Las Vegas boxing masterclass

Follow coverage live from Las Vegas as Mayweather and McGregor prepare to meet at the T-Mobile Arena in what is the biggest sporting event of the year

Super-fight preview: Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor

It’s finally time. After two years of speculation, two months of intense build-up and one incredibly hectic Las Vegas fight week, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor were finally ready to settle their differences in the boxing ring.

Mayweather, 40, was attempting to surpass the boxing record of the great Rocky Marciano, who retired at 49-0. However, after emerging victorious, Mayweather moves to 50-0, further establishing himself as one of the greatest boxers to have lived.

In the opposite corner was McGregor — a man who had never boxed professionally before and thus hheld a record of 0-0. It should have been a walkover, right? Find out how the fight unfolded below...

Please allow a moment for the live blog to load.

Perhaps it will be an easy win for Mayweather, but McGregor has built his career around one stunning upset after another. The Irishman became the first man in the history of the UFC to hold titles across two weight classes when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez in his last fight, and his counter straight-left is regarded as one of the most destructive strikes in the whole of mixed martial arts.

The fight between the pair has been nothing if not divisive, with some claiming it is bad for the sport of boxing, and others claiming it will guarantee excitement and drama.

One thing is for sure: you won’t want to miss it.
