Video: Footage of Conor McGregor dancing after Mayweather loss goes viral
Conor McGregor may have lost the biggest battle in boxing history to Floyd Mayweather but it seems that he is over the loss already, as a video of him dancing at a party has gone viral on social media. The video was shared by Anthony Fowler, a British boxer, and shows McGregor partying at the Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas.
The Irishman was up against Mayweather in what was billed as the 'Money Fight' at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, where he lasted 10 rounds against the American boxer, who is considered as one of the greatest ever to have stepped into the ring.
Mayweather had announced his retirement in 2015 but returned to action after being challenged to a match by McGregor, who is widely renowned as the biggest name in the MMA world. Irrespective of the result, both competitors are expected to make huge sums of money from the fight, with the Irishman's earnings expected to be around the $100 million mark, while for Mayweather, the sum is reported to be $200 million, which will also make him the first boxer to cross the billion-dollar mark in career earnings.
McGregor gave a good account of himself during the fight, starting off aggressively and getting a few punches in. However, as he tired out towards the end, Mayweather made the most of the opportunity and ended the contest in Round 10 with a flurry of unanswered punches that made the referee call the bout to a close.
Despite the loss, McGregor will go back home as a winner, given that he made Mayweather work hard on his professional debut and that he will be richer by almost $100 million. No wonder he is partying hard!
