Floyd Mayweather won the fight via TKO in the tenth round. The fight didn’t turn out as most experts predicted. It wasn’t complete domination from Mayweather as initially, McGregor won the first three rounds comfortably.

However, the Irish star took to Twitter to address his loss to Mayweather and said that a rematch would be interesting.

I spoiled it with the rush right hook here,’ McGregor said referencing an attached video.

‘The angle was made. He was in the dirt. I just had to set correctly into my feet and fire. Rushing the right hook I lost balance on my backhand.

Great boxing fight. A rematch will be interesting no doubt.
