The much-anticipated boxing match between legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather and UFC champion Conor McGregor finally is here.
The two men will step into the ring Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in what some experts are labeling the “fight of the century.” Mayweather is a huge betting favorite for a few reasons, two being his impressive 49-0 career record and the fact McGregor has never participated in a professional boxing match.
Still, it’s expected to be a very exciting fight — we’ve never seen two combat sports champions throw down in this kind of setting.
The preliminary bouts are scheduled for 6 p.m. ET. The main card begins at 9 p.m. ET, with the main event expected to start around 11:30 p.m. ET.

ROUND 10: That’s it. Another devastating round by Floyd Mayweather. Too many right-hand punches and Conor McGregor couldn’t take it anymore. The referee was forced to stop the fight for a TKO victory for Mayweather.
The boxing legend improves to 50-0 in his career. McGregor deserves a ton of credit. He lasted more than many could have expected, and he landed a ton of punches, particularly in the early rounds.
ROUND 9: Floyd Mayweather really started to attack in the second half of the round. Conor McGregor was looking a bit wobbly as he took right hand after right hand. The UFC star barely could put up his fists toward the end of the round. Mayweather completely dominated that round. He wasn’t looking to play defense, he went on the attack.
Score: 10-8 Floyd Mayweather (87-81 FM)
ROUND 8: Conor McGregor was able to land a nice left-hand jab, but Floyd Mayweather moved in with a good combo. The UFC champ needed to land something huge to score an important round, but he wasn’t able to create a notable moment that round.
Score: Floyd Mayweather 10-9 (77-73 FM)
ROUND 7: Another huge round for Floyd Mayweather. He landed a bunch of huge right-hand jabs — several as lead power punches — and counter-punched quite well. Conor McGregor doesn’t have much with his right hand and he isn’t able to land anything powerful on Mayweather. It easily was Mayweather’s best round.
Score: 10-8 Floyd Mayweather (67-64 FM)
ROUND 6: Conor McGregor opened up the round with a fury. Floyd Mayweather’s speed and legs aren’t what we’ve come to expect from him. He’s been a step slow all fight.
But, Mayweather began to attack midway through the round and he inflicted the most damage any fight has taken in a single round so far. Several good right-handed jabs landed on the UFC star’s face.
Score: Floyd Mayweather 10-8 (57-56 FM)
ROUND 5: Pretty solid round for each fighter, with no major punches landed. Floyd Mayweather shoved Conor McGregor at the end of the round.
Score: 10-9 Floyd Mayweather (48-47 CM)
ROUND 4: Floyd Mayweather shortened up the distance and started attacking more this round. He got in a solid right-hand jab and then a good combination. The real question is whether McGregor will begin to tire soon. He’s fought at a fast pace so far.
Score: 10-9 Floyd Mayweather (39-37 CM)
ROUND 3: Conor McGregor opened up the round with another solid punch. A tremendous start for the UFC champion. Floyd Mayweather has not attempted many punches thus far, it seems like he’s just biding his time and trying to figure out the Irishman’s timing. McGregor needs to watch the hammerfists, though, he can’t afford a point deduction.
Score: 10-9 Conor McGregor (30-27 CM)
ROUND 2: Another lackluster round for Floyd Mayweather. Conor McGregor again was the aggressor and threw a lot more punches. He’s been physical when possible, but still hasn’t landed a straight left-hand jab.
Score: 10-9 Conor McGregor (20-18 CM)
ROUND 1: We’re underway!
Lot’s of defense from Floyd Mayweather in that round, as expected, although McGregor did land an uppercut on the boxing legend. McGregor didn’t come out swinging, but he was solid.
