Thanks and goodbye

What a night / morning it has been.

On the undercard, Nathan Cleverly lost his WBA light-heavyweight title, but Savannah Marshall made a winning start to her professional career, before Gervonta Davis won, although he he had lost his IBF super-featherweight title the day before when he failed to make the weight.

And the main event did not disappoint. Many gave Conor McGregor no chance, but he made a bright start, before Floyd Mayweather's experience and skill proved crucial as he stamped his authority on the fight before forcing a stoppage in the 10th round.

Hope you all have enjoyed it as much as we have. Thank you for joining us and for all your comments. That concludes the end of this page, so until next time, bye for now.

The scorecards

Mayweather beats McGregor with a 10th-round stoppage

This is interesting. This is how the three ringside judges scored the fight, until it was stopped in the 10th round.

It shows the judges had Mayweather winning by four, seven, and (a pretty generous) eight-round margins.

McGregor v Malignaggi next?

What Mike is referring to is what has been a bizarre sideshow in an already bizarre event.

American boxer Paulie Malignaggi, a two-weight world champion, was helping Conor McGregor by sparring with him. That was until pictures appeared on social media of Malignaggi seemingly being floored by the Irishman.

Malignaggi claimed he had only been pushed to the canvas, then the UFC's Dana White produced this video of the pair boxing together.

Malignaggi was not exactly impressed with that and now says he wants to fight McGregor on St Patrick's Day - Saturday, 17 March, 2018.

Could it happen? The fact McGregor put up a good show against Mayweather has probably increased the chances significantly.

'McGregor is a huge attraction in boxing'

Mike Costello

BBC Radio 5 live boxing commentator in Las Vegas

Boxing's reputation wouldn't have been damaged at all by tonight because what we have seen is Conor McGregor show that it is possible to switch between codes.

Conor McGregor is now a huge attraction in boxing. This is my first introduction to a UFC fighter so I won't comment on where he will go with them, but I can see another future boxing contest for McGregor.

You've seen the sparring videos and their fall-out, so now Conor McGregor v Paulie Malignaggi on St Patrick's Day next March is a legitimate fight. The build-up for that starts now.

'A McGregor win wouldn't have damaged boxing'

Mayweather beats McGregor with a 10th-round stoppage

Steve Bunce

BBC Radio 5 live boxing pundit in Las Vegas

[Had McGregor won] it wouldn't have damaged boxing. It would have damaged Mayweather's reputation because it would've proved that his wallet and ego was bigger than his brain.

His reputation would have been sullied by greed. Pure and simple.

'Let the man put me down'

Mayweather beats McGregor with a 10th-round stoppage

Some quotes now from Conor McGregor: "I took the early rounds pretty handy, he adjusted. He's composed - not that fast or powerful, but boy is he composed and he was making me throw.

"Fair play to him, what a career he's had. I thought it was a little early with the stoppage. I would have liked to have hit the floor, he [the referee] should have let me keep going. I was just a little fatigued. He was a lot more composed under the shots - that's what 50 professional fights will give you.

"I've been strangled on live TV and came back, so I would have liked him to have let it go. It was some buzz. I thought we were close. It was fatigue. The referee could have let it keep going, let the man put me down.

"No-one is taking these kind of risks. I'll take it on the chin, it's another day for me."

'McGregor has proved the doubters wrong'

Mayweather beats McGregor with a 10th-round stoppage

Mike Costello

BBC Radio 5 live boxing commentator in Las Vegas

Many people said in the build-up that this fight couldn't count as his 50th win. Believe me, it can after the performance tonight.

Clearly, McGregor has proved the doubters wrong and he will be in the dressing room knowing he gave everything he could.

'This was my last fight. I chose the right dance partner'

Mayweather beats McGregor with 10th-round stoppage

Some post-fight quotes from Floyd Mayweather. He said: "McGregor is a tough competitor and we gave them what the fans wanted to see - I owed them for the Manny Pacquiao fight.

"He [McGregor] was a lot better than I thought. He was a tough competitor, but I was the better man. Our game plan was to take our time, let him shoot his heavy shots and take him out at the end.

"In the MMA, he fights 25 minutes really hard, and after 25 minutes he starts to slow down. I guaranteed everybody this would not go the distance. Boxing's reputation was on the line."

On his record of 50-0, beating Rocky Marciano's 49-0, Mayweather added: "Rocky Marciano is a legend and I look forward to going into the hall of fame one day.

"This was my last fight tonight, for sure. I chose the right dance partner. Conor McGregor, you are a hell of a champion."

'McGregor gave Mayweather something to think about'

Steve Bunce

BBC Radio 5 live boxing pundit in Las Vegas

The stoppage was too early but only by a second or two because McGregor had absolutely nothing left.

But what he did have was pure heart and guts. Nobody expected how he came out in those first three rounds.

From round four, Mayweather turned this fight on its head and what a relief it must be for him because McGregor, with the little boxing ring experience he has, did give him something to think about during the fight.

'Mayweather's smile is one of relief'

Mike Costello

BBC Radio 5 live boxing commentator in Las Vegas

It has been a truly astonishing night. I thought my enjoyment of the fight week will have ended last night but we have had a truly memorable Vegas fight night from two remarkable men.

Boxing skills are like the elastic in your socks, you'll always have them. Mayweather did try to give us the Mayweather of old but his smile is one of relief as much as celebration.

One minute five seconds of round 10 is all it takes. "He is still undefeated, Floyd Money Mayweather," screams Jimmy Lennon Jr.


Round 10:

Floyd Mayweather wins it. He has a 50-0 record. It was a brave, brave effort from Conor McGregor, but in the end Mayweather was just too good.

The end comes early in the 10th round. Mayweather attacks again and referee Robert Byrd dives in to save McGregor from any more punishment.

A powerful straight right sends McGregor spiralling backwards around the ring, Mayweather lands another two brutal shots to the head, with McGregor dazed and not firing anything back, it is all over.

"Calm down, you just need to tie him up this round," says McGregor's coach John Kavanagh.

BBC 5 live's Steve Bunce adds: "He's got nothing left but heart and guts."

How long can he hang on?

Round 9: Mayweather v McGregor

A wild, hopeful swing from McGregor, but it misses by miles. McGregor is one tough customer as Mayweather lands a lot in round nine but cannot finish it and McGregor is gasping for air at the end of the ninth.

Three rounds for him to turn this around and cause the shock of all shocks.

Round 9: Mayweather v McGregor

McGregor throws out a jab as the pair were separated by the referee Robert Byrd. It comes after one shot which Mayweather thought was low.

Mayweather does not seem concerned with his opponent's power though.

Round 8: Mayweather v McGregor

McGregor looks like a man whose energy has been sapped out of him, and his punches do not cause even a flinch of pain from Mayweather, who is toying with his opponent at the moment.

One punch can change everything though.

'Completely shocked the boxing world'

Round 7: Mayweather v McGregor

Steve Bunce

BBC Radio 5 live boxing pundit in Las Vegas

I hope nobody takes anything away from Conor McGregor in these seven rounds. He's completely shocked the boxing world like he said he would.

Round 7: Mayweather v McGregor

McGregor has a cut on the mouth, and needs to do something to get himself back into the contest. Mayweather is looking too good, and McGregor's punches are not looking powerful enough to cause any damage.

But he is still in there, so deserves a huge amount of credit for that. Seven rounds gone.

Round 7: Mayweather v McGregor

Our vote earlier asked what would happen and 36% said Mayweather to win inside the first six rounds. That was the most popular option, but has not happened.

Into round seven. McGregor needs a good one after losing the momentum he had gained at the start.

Round 5: Mayweather v McGregor

The busier work is still coming from McGregor, but none of the punches are taking effect and none of them are causing damage. A big left from Floyd Mayweather does find its mark though.

Things get feisty at the end of round five, with Mayweather shoving McGregor out of his way. Warming up nicely.

Steve Bunce

How about this? Floyd Mayweather is struggling. Both men look like they're breathing heavy. We've never seen Floyd Mayweather like this. He's looking for a single shot.

Round 4: Mayweather v McGregor

McGregor opts to utilise his own body punches, twice burying lefts deep into the American's chest, but wait, Mayweather lands again, with a left cross, at the end of that round. His best work of the fight so far? Is McGregor in danger of punching himself out early?

Round 4: Mayweather v McGregor

Mayweather produces some of his best work early in round four. A straight right to the body and another to the chin both find their target.
