It was quite natural to see the tensions rising between Mayweather and McGregor before the fight. In fact, this continued for some months prior to the fight with both waging verbal warfare on each other.
Things reached a climax when Conor was spotted by Twitter at weigh-ins at the T-Mobile Arena, indicating just how excited he was about the super fight.
There was even a mind-boggling prediction by a member of Twitterati.

So much so, 50 Cent got involved as well. Here is what he said on the Instagram.
Well, the fight itself was pretty intense with Floyd Mayweather keeping his unbeaten record intact. In fact, it was his 50th fight in which he remained unbeaten.
The match could have easily ended in knockout but it wasn’t to be. It rather ended in technical knockout.
Floyd Mayweather has announced his retirement from professional boxing as well. That being said, we are sure that you must have this Titanic moment between the two pro athletes.
