The pair were caught exhanging words inbetween rounds before Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round
FLOYD MAYWEATHER has revealed what was said during the fight last night after he had sealed his place in history when he stopped Conor McGregor in round 10.
McGregor’s debut was ended after 30 minutes when referee Robert Byrd stepped in.
During Mayweather’s stoppage victory he asked Conor McGregor: “Is that all you’ve got?”.
McGregor, 29, won the opening three rounds and was looking got a big body shot early on.
After the referee had come to a conclusion on the fifth round, Mayweather lost his cool and shoved McGregor after the bell whilst behind the scorecard and said to him: “You still haven’t knocked me out? You said it wouldn’t go past four, when are you going to use your power?”
The sixth round was when McGregor slowly started to fade as he was warned by the referee for illegal punches.
The Money Man decided to cash in on round 10 as he battered the UFC star senseless until Byrd stepped in.
The 40-year-old boxing legend also revealed that in his last month of training he had sustained a hand injury which meant he could not spar.

He went on to say: “We had a cool training camp, but I didn’t do any sparring for the last month.”
“My hands are real brittle and I wanted them to be solid when I came out here.”
“If I had serious hard injury I wouldn’t have been able to hit so hard.”
Despite predictions of McGregor not being able to fulfill his boxing debut after coming from a UFC background, he proved Mayweather Wrong.
Mayweather said: “He was solid, but I’ve been off for a couple of years and I’m older now.”
“I still have a hell of an IQ and I’m still a thinker.”
“His punching power is solid but I’ve felt it before so I kept coming forward. It wasn’t the kind of power that stopped me coming forward.”
“I told you guys I’d come straight ahead. I could have sat back and counter-punched. My plan was to let him shoot heavy shots and take him down the stretch.”
“I wanted to let him shoot heavy shots from the beginning.”
The billion dollar fight attracted countless stars at the T-mobile Arena along with Bruce Willis, Ozzy and Sharon Osborne, Jamie Foxx, Akon, P Diddy, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lopez, Mike Tyson and Lebron James.
