Dustin's Corner: Floyd Mayweather Retires from Boxing after Retiring McGregor

Finally...

The People’s Red Head has come back to The Weigh-In!

Saturday night marked the mega fight between Mayweather and McGregor. Hopefully the readers will forever remember what they were doing when the pay-per-view stopped working. We imagine the next generation will be telling their grand-kids about the passing of Michael Jackson, 9-11, President Trump’s election, and how pay-per-view went out during Saturday’s mega fight.

Regardless of what the feelings were leading up to the fight, Mayweather did not disappoint. Once the fight got underway, it was a different Mayweather than we are used to seeing. Hats off to McGregor who gave it his all, until expending all the energy he had to give.

As many suspected, Mayweather gave the early rounds to McGregor. It appeared, as per usual, Mayweather spent the first three rounds downloading McGregor’s attack. To his credit, in the early rounds, McGregor gave Mayweather everything he could handle. If you listened carefully, you could hear Vegas sports books quaking in the early rounds.

Mayweather then began to focus on the body and left McGregor looking shaky in round 7. His earlier investment of body work paid off in round 10. Round 10 was all Money. Mayweather walked McGregor down forcing referee Robert Boyd to call a stop to the action.

Many individuals felt the stoppage was premature. To that, we say two things: why are you wasting time on other sites over The Weigh-In, and seriously, there was no need for the fight to continue. It was apparent that McGregor’s tank was empty and there was no need for him to take unnecessary punishment.

Hopefully fans enjoyed the fight. It was clear McGregor put in the work and he looked terrific. However, Mayweather’s experience was really on display. Boxing fans everywhere get bragging rights that the sport prevailed. One cannot help but wonder if we will see another crossover fight in the future.

I will close with this; Mayweather forgot to send out invites to his after party. For this, we will forgive him, but it still hurts. We cannot even get McGregor to spit in our direction, and I am Irish. In all seriousness, a thank you to both for putting on a great show.
