On Saturday night, Floyd Mayweather beat Conor McGregor, improved his record to 50-0 (passing Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 record), joined Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan as the only athletes to ever earn a billion dollars from sports and then called it quits (again).
“This was my last fight tonight. For sure,” Mayweather said after the surprisingly not disappointing fight. “Tonight was my last fight. Tonight I chose the right dance partner to dance with. Conor, you are a hell of a champion.”
Conor, in his boxing debut, also earned the respect from a few basketball players who tweeted about the fight. Here are those tweets along with other reactions from the NBA world.
