Floyd Mayweather did not fight his way into the billionaire club, yet

Mayweather and MGregor face-off before fight

In his first fight for nearly two years, Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round at the T-Mobile Arena to retire from the sport undefeated.

As he said after the fight in the post-fight press conference, this will be the time where the 'counting process' will begin and he will have his auditors go in like 'sharks' to count every cent of income from sponsorship, pay per view, TV rights, merchandise and more. The possession in question is the 'Money Belt' - a showpiece trophy that Mayweather got his hands on with Saturday's big victory. Mayweather's career record now stands at 50-0.

Moreover, the run up to this latest farce was disturbing on both sides. "A win is a win". When the numbers for the August 26 prizefight are released, it will likely confirm that he will have been part of the top four.

Which is why it is a good time for him to walk away from the sport, as he promises now. Shoot, I think his willingness to flaunt his prodigious consumption is perhaps the most entertaining thing about him.

Mayweather's cardio is up there with the best in any sport, and it's true that a different type of cardio is required for boxing as opposed to MMA. If there was any fraud perpetrated, it was just beyond the ropes. But it was a boxing fight with boxing rules, meaning McGregor couldn't kick or wrestle like he would in a UFC bout.

"... Floyd Mayweather was in trouble several times in this fight". "He came out (Saturday night) with limited weapons". He got a $1 million paycheck from the UFC for the first time in March 2016.

This means that only Canelo, with 117, has been able to land more punches on the boxing champ. That's better than what happened in 2012, when Pacquiao delayed a fight so he could watch the end of a Heat-Celtics playoff game.

The UFC wants its biggest star back in the octagon quickly. As everyone in his camp cheered and gave him a standing ovation, Mayweather walked to the back and hugged a taller man in a business suit.

"We asked around and someone said that those seats were going for $80,000 each, so we waiting for security to leave the area and we just went for it".

"Last Friday I streamed Foxtel's broadcast of Mundine v Green 2 fight via my Facebook page to thousands of people".

Yet the UFC also just made untold millions from McGregor's dalliance with boxing while he was under contract. Therein lies the inherent genius - and cynicism - of the Mayweather vs. McGregor. "I thought I was the richest man in the world at 19, receiving 100,000 dollars". There's a lot on the line here - he should have let me keep going until I hit the floor.

Was the fight exciting?

The very fact the current UFC lightweight champion succeeded in laying a glove on Mayweather busted the beliefs of those who doubted his boxing ability.

There have been few fights like this one. "LeBron James was on my row and I could see Leonardo DiCaprio". Again: the sign of a novice.

His mouth flopped open, his breathing became laboured, he wasn't as light on his feet and there was a huge decrease in the sting of his punches.

He survived the round but not the fight.

"I'm young, I'm fresh and I'm ready", McGregor said. "Obviously, it would be more difficult if it was lopsided one way or another".

But considering the apocalyptic predictions leading up to the fight, it more than lived up to its billing. Both fighters are expected to leave the ring with hefty paydays.
