Rare Slow-Motion Footage Of Floyd Mayweather 'Punishing' Conor McGregor During Mega-Fight

New slow-motion footage of Floyd Mayweather 'punishing' Conor McGregor during their 2017 mega-fight has emerged and it shows how lethal the American is.

Mayweather came out on top during the cross-promotion fight and extended his unbeaten record to 50-0.

McGregor gave it his all in the boxing ring but it's clear that 'Money' was the master of his native sport and eased to a 10th round TKO victory.

The slow-mo footage from the bout inside the T-Mobile Arena puts into perspective how fierce Mayweather's strikes were in comparison to the Irishman's.

McGregor's jabs in the contest barely left a mark on the Michigan native, while Mayweather made sure every strike landed perfectly.

Mayweather is known for his pragmatic fighting style and it comes as no shock that he picked his moments accordingly.

One man who has respect for 'The Notorious' is former boxing world champion Mike Tyson.

Tyson praised the former 'Champ-champ' on a recent edition of 'Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson' and defended him for going 10 round with the 'greatest fighter of the last 100 years of boxing.'

McGregor tweeted out a message to the 53-year-old after seeing his message and promised to avenge his defeat to Mayweather.

The 31-year-old tweeted: "Thank you Mike, and just know that for the inevitable rematch, with the knowledge I now hold of Floyd's style, plus under the tutelage of my old school boxing coach, I will crack the puzzle, and I will beat Floyd.

"I promise my life on it. It is great to see you back Iron Mike."

Despite McGregor's desire to face Mayweather again, the 43-year-old is unlikely to return considering the money he wants for a comeback.

"If I see an opportunity where I can entertain and have a little fun and make six hundred million, why not?" he recently told Fight Hype.

"If I am going to do something it's got to be worth it. But there's no number that's worth me getting back in that ring and fighting these young fighters to get any type of wear and tear on my body."

Do you think Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will ever face off again?
