Floyd Mayweather Jr. may have been on the receiving end of Conor McGregor’s punches in the early rounds, but “Money” scored when it mattered the most.

After McGregor outpunched Mayweather, 51-40, in the first five rounds, boxing’s former pound-for-pound king turned the tables on the Irishman, landing 130 punches as compared to the Notorious’ 60 from the sixth to the 10th round, as per Compubox.

Mayweather, who upped his record to 50-0, was also the more accurate puncher landing 170 of his 320 throws for a 53 percent clip and even his power punches, 152-of-261, were so accurate at 58 percent.

McGregor managed to land 111 of his total 430 punches but connected just 84 of his 332 power strikes.

Interestingly, McGregor, who was stopped midway through the 10th, landed more punches in this fight than Manny Pacquiao did against Mayweather in their 2015 showdown which went the distance.

Pacquiao, as per Compubox, landed just 81 punches in 12 rounds.
