Floyd Mayweather posts photo of Conor McGregor artwork in Beverly Hills home

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has paid homage to Conor McGregor by hanging artwork of their historic fight in his Beverly Hills home.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor might have insulted each other for months in the lead-up to their famed superfight on Aug. 26, but the two combat sports stars showed mutual respect after the bout.

‘The Best Ever’ has even gone as far as to hang artwork of himself and ‘The Notorious’ in his Beverly Hills home, celebrating what could be the biggest fight in combat sports history.

Mayweather, 40, finished Conor McGregor with an unrelenting barrage of strikes in the 10th round and extended his professional boxing record to a perfect 50-0, surpassing the legendary, 49-0 undefeated heavyweight Rocky Marciano.

McGregor, the current UFC lightweight champion, promised a first-round KO and had early success, but the Irishman faded in the middle rounds and was almost completely exhausted in the 10th.

The blockbuster fight smashed the U.K. pay-per-view record with over 1 million buys and is estimated to have pulled in 4.4-4.6 million buys in the U.S.

Mayweather announced his retirement after the bout and McGregor is expected to make an announcement on his future plans in the coming weeks.
