While Conor McGregor was on the receiving end of praise regarding his showing against Floyd Mayweather Saturday night in Las Vegas, Mayweather picking up the 50th win of his boxing career with a 10th-round stoppage did not come as a surprise.

Guaranteed to make $100 million from the fight, Mayweather stands to make a whole lot more when the final pay-per-view numbers are tabulated, even with there being issues for some who ordered the bout. Thursday afternoon Mayweather sent out a tweet of himself before the fight with the words “I’m going in the Guinness Book of World Records for that heist.”

Interestingly enough the man tagged in the tweet, Philipp Plein, is working on an exclusive clothing line with Mayweather. There are two T-shirts on Plein’s website that commemorate Mayweather’s 50th win, one that costs $420 and another that will run you $780… plus shipping.
