Afterward, the 50-0 Mayweather announced it was his last fight, and celebrated McGregor as his "dance partner" for the lucrative sendoff.
Here's how the fight card breaks down with disclosed salaries for each of the main card fighters. "For sure", Mayweather said.
"This is my last fight ladies and gentlemen, my last fight". I chose the right dance partner', he said after stopping the Irishman in the 10th round. Not often you see that from a fighter ahead of a big fight.
Mayweather retires with a perfect record of 50 wins in 50 professional fights.
According to MMAFighting.com's Mike Chiapetta, McGregor actually landed more punches on Mayweather, and at a better percentage, than eight-division boxing champion Manny Pacquiao.
Mayweather meanwhile revealed the fight had followed a tactical plan as he took his time and allowed McGregor to become fatigued before pouncing in the later rounds.

"A lot of people found it exciting, could Conor McGregor beat Floyd?"
"He's composed, he's not that fast, he's not that powerful, but, boy, is he composed in there", McGregor said.
"When I met him, he was just done with his training". [Floyd] was a lot more composed.
After all the huffing and puffing of the pre-fight meets between the two, it was good to see the two great champions share some friendly banter and show some mutual respect for each other. "It was some buzz, to get in there in the squared circle it was so different, it was so fun". That's fatigue, that's not damage.
"Where were the final two rounds?" But get me into the corner and I'd have recovered and come back. So while McGregor's comment wasn't overtly racist and certainly didn't have malicious intent, it's still based on a stereotype.
At the time of the stoppage, all three judges had the fight scored in favor of Mayweather: 89-81, 89-82 and 87-83.More news: Meet The Galaxy Note 8: A Successor To Last Year's 'Explosive' Phablet
