What now for Conor McGregor after losing to Floyd Mayweather?

The national super bantamweight champion Nadir Baloch believes the Floyd Mayweather-Conor Mcgregor fight was inspiring for the local boxers in Pakistan, and even had an effect on his club players in the locality as small as Faqir Coloni in Orangi Town besides Lyari, Karachi.

In the altogether more genteel surroundings of the boxing ring, he made a lot more money with a lot less damage, and his appetite has surely been whetted by the enormous riches on offer.

Mayweather put in real work, too, on his way to a 10th-round technical knockout of McGregor, a novice boxer making his pro debut in a fight that was wholly illogical - which was probably one of the reasons millions of people were so intrigued. Estimates range from $150 million to $200 million for that part, so we're giving the benefit of the doubt (and his own personal estimate) here.

Again, predictable. But few moments in sports as a whole can recreate the feeling of excitement over those first few rounds, the "Is this really happening or possible?" questions capable of making fans around the world feel like the $100 pay-per-view was money well spent. "We knew Mayweather was too good for McGregor; of course it wasn't McGregor's field, it was Mayweather's, so we were confident", said Nadir. "You've got to have the right people in the right place at the right time". "I told you guys I'd come straight ahead and I told you the fight would not go the distance". The marketing campaign was inexpensive and focused on digital promotion, and targeted events. The duel serves as Mayweather's 15th consecutive fight in the Silver State. Steve Armour wrote the script, based on a true story, that centers on a salesman-turned-pastor and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. In his locker room afterward, McGregor hinted he could probably beat Mayweather if given another shot, armed with this experience.

But whatever elements of age have caught up to Mayweather, McGregor's inexperience in boxing made it difficult to exploit them for very long.

Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather may have broken the largest gate record, but at what cost?

"We sent an email explaining our suggestion on how we handle this, and they agreed", Simbal told ESPN.

Mayweather landed more punches than McGregor 130-60 in rounds six through 10 after McGregor had a 51-40 edge in the first five rounds. "The ref should have let me keep going".

The T-Mobile Arena is still virtually empty for what is expected to be a late-arriving crowd. They pulled off an audacious gamble Saturday night, and all that was left to do was to count the money rolling in.

By the middle rounds, he was losing his legs and was visibly tired.

"He's a smooth operator in there", McGregor said. "I had a great career, I can't complain about anything". Packard said that Mayweather will also face self-employment taxes, which tax 12.4 percent of the first $118,000 of an individual's income, plus an additional 2.9 percent Medicare self-employment tax on all yearly income.

The speculation in the weeks leading up to the fight undeniably had Mayweather - who hasn't lost since 1996 in the Olympics when he was an amateur - as the heavy favorite. He'd been retired for nearly two years before Saturday's bout and was still by far the sport's biggest name.

"Everything takes time but eventually we'll find the next superstar", Mayweather said.
