It may have been a fairly predicatable ending to one of the most anticipated and hyped boxing matches in recent memory, but Floyd Mayweather’s 10th round TKO win over UFC star Conor McGregor has provoked controversy among fans.
The Irish MMA star came out swinging, but couldn’t keep his pace, with the experienced boxer taking over the fight in the middle rounds and cruising to a win, with the fight stopped before either fighter hit the canvas.
The stoppage became a big talking point as social media reacted to the fight, and ex-Manchester United and Fiorentina player Giuseppe Rossi was left outraged by it. However, the forward was just one of many reactions to the big event
I wonder how much they talked before the fight and planned it all out. Disgrace to sports.

Not surprised to wake up to the news. Surely that was the most likely outcome? The sport of Boxing retains its credibility with that result.
