l MAYWEATHER admitted afterwards he hadn’t sparred for a month before the bout due to his fragile hands. While there was no specific injury, he said he was concerned about damaging them before the fight.
l THE pair had an exchange after the bell to end the fifth round. Mayweather explained: “I shoved him and said, ‘You ain’t knocked me out yet, you said you were going to knock me out inside four.’ It was just showmanship.”
l MCGREGOR objected to the stoppage: “One of the main things in camp was going from five rounds to 12 rounds. In all of my spars when I got to round six, I was like ‘f**k’. But then I’d get it back by round 10. I wish they’d have let the fight continue. I could have got a second wind.”
