Rosie Perez was one of the celebrities who support Floyd Mayweather Jr. She took to Twitter to celebrate the victory of the undefeated boxer over MMA fighter Conor McGregor in a boxing superfight on Aug. 26, Saturday.
“50-0 Baby!” Perez tweeted. She added that Mayweather was amazing and he “acted like a gentleman in the end” with all the trash talking of his Irish opponent.
The former “The View” host is also a boxing enthusiast. She served as the grand marshal for the international Boxing Hall of Fame parade in Canastota, New York, in June 2013.
Perez and Eric Haze, an artist, got married on Sept. 15, 2013 in Las Vegas. A night before the wedding ceremony, they had decided to get married while attending the boxing match between Mayweather and Saúl Álvarez.
Many boxing fans expected McGregor to lose and not even last long in the bout against Mayweather. However, the Irish UFC fighter managed to last for 10 rounds before the referee stopped the fight and declared Mayweather the winner via technical knockout.
McGregor is a former UFC featherweight champion and the reigning UFC lightweight champion. He currently holds a professional MMA record of 21 wins and 3 losses.
On Nov. 30, 2016, McGregor obtained a professional boxing license from the California State Athletic Commission. His professional boxing debut was confirmed six months later. As a professional boxer, McGregor has 0 win and 1 loss after losing to Mayweather. The latter, on the other hand, has 50 wins and 0 loss.
