Floyd Mayweather wins fight of the century
After a build-up of almost five years, the pair took to the ring at the MGM Grand and battled through a closely-fought 12 rounds, with little separating them.
But it was the American came out on top at the end of the multi-million dollar spectacle - retaining his undefeated record. Millions of viewers across the United States tuned in for what was expected to be one of the biggest sporting events in history, but some were left frustrated as pay-per-view services crashed just hours before the pair stepped into the ring because of surging demand. The 38-year-old favorite conquered the Philippino in front of a host of celebrities - including Jay Z, Beyonce, Bradley Cooper, Mark Wahlberg and Donald Trump - and thousands of boxing fans who had flown in into Sin City from around the world just to be ringside for the historic bout.
