De Amerikaanse topbokser Floyd Mayweather (40) heeft afgelopen nacht in Las Vegas zoals verwacht de maat genomen van de Ierse kooivechter Conor McGregor (29). Mayweather haalde het in de tiende ronde met technisch K.O. De Amerikaan, die voor de kamp uit pensioen kwam, blijft zo ongeslagen. Hij won al zijn 50 bokskampen, een record. 'The Money Fight' draaide niet om een officiële titel, wel om heel veel geld.
