There were some fans, fighters, and pundits that believed that there was no chance in the world that Conor McGregor would be able to have a competitive fight with Floyd Mayweather in the boxing ring.

Ultimately, conditioning still caught McGregor in the end as he ran out of steam in the ninth round before Mayweather finished the fight in the tenth.

Showtime was hit with a federal class-action lawsuit amid reports that it delivered shoddy or non-existent $99 streams of the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight Saturday. McGregor was estimated to make at least $100 million for the fight while Mayweather's haul was predicted to be at least $200 million.

An estimated 2.9 million people on saw the undefeated boxing champion Mayweather beat McGregor, the UFC mixed martial arts champion, on 239 illegal streams on Saturday, according to digital security platform Irdeto.

The victory over McGregor was the culmination of a 21-year journey that took Mayweather from the grit and grime of Grand Rapids, Michigan to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas, and from childhood poverty to a billionaire lifestyle.

"That was me defending my sport", De La Hoya explained to reporters Monday.

Neither boxer landed a lot of power punches early, with McGregor holding a slight 27-25 advantage through four rounds. "Man, that was pathetic, I thought". I still think it's a fraud.

Even if he splurges on all his favourite clothing brands and gets himself a new closet, he will still have quite some change left. I just carry on living my life, care-free, and see what's next in the fight game, because fighting is what I enjoy'.

"You won't see me in the ring anymore", Mayweather said.

Golovkin's promoter, Tom Loeffler, also expressed relief in how the show played out. "This sucks we're going through this over and over again". He got a knockout that helped erase the stain from his fight with Manny Pacquiao two years earlier.

He also advised McGregor to not return to boxing as he might get "killed".

But in the moments after the bell rang and Mayweather was declared the victor, McGregor appeared to have his wits about him, and felt confident that he could have gone the distance.

Two separate lawsuits, filed in OR federal court by Portland resident Zack Bartel and by Victor Mallh in NY federal court, seek class-action status for what they allege were failures in Showtime's pay-per-view livestream of the match in Las Vegas.
