Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, an American hip-hop mogul, has said the referee should have allowed Floyd Mayweather knock out Conor McGregor.
He claims that the referee racially profiled Mayweather, hence his intervention before McGregor could hit the canvas.
The fight was stopped in the 10th round after Mayweather threw successive punches at McGregor who appeared to be heading for a fall.
By virtue of the referee’s stoppage, the fight was adjudged a technical knock out.
Afterwards, Diddy took to Twitter to voice his displeasure at the manner in which it ended.
“I just feel like the ref was racially profiling, he should have let him knock out the man mehn… champ, knock him out the box,” he said.
