In his post-fight interview, Mayweather revealed that his opponent was "a lot better than I thought he was... but I was the better man tonight."
"I gave the fans what they wanted to see. I told them that I owed them for the Pacquiao fight. I must come straight ahead and give them a show," he said, adding that Saturday's match was his last fight.
"Tonight was my last fight, for sure," he shared. "Tonight, I chose the right dance partner to dance with. Conor McGregor, you're a hell of a champion, and to the country of Ireland, we love you guys!"
Mayweather's celebrity friends and supporters quickly took to social media to congratulate him on his victory.
Congrats on a amazing career @FloydMayweather ....The sport of boxing will miss you man. Nothing but love and respect for you man!!!
