Floyd Mayweather Jr. moved to a gaudy 50-0 record with a 10th round victory over pro-boxing debutante (and two time UFC champion) Conor McGregor. The American’s TKO victory was his first stoppage since he defeated Victor Ortiz (in controversial fashion) in 2011.
Showtime Sports’ SHOstats reveal the tremendous accuracy shown by the presumably retired Mayweather as he worked his way to a historic victory. Below are the numbers or punches thrown and landed for both Mayweather and McGregor.
