His shocked friends yell ‘oh my God’ in the background while the man vents his anger following McGregor’s defeat, and some of them are shown filming the chaos.
After pulling the TV down and delivering a few final blows to the back of it, the man storms off into another room to calm down.
The man’s incredible outburst may have been due to a lost bet on the charismatic Irishman.
TAB said more than 80 per cent of the $5.5 million wagered on the highly-anticipated title favoured McGregor despite his underdog status.
‘The $50,000 we have taken on Mayweather is the biggest we have had, but even with that sentiment from punters is that they are on McGregor to cause the upset,’ TAB spokesman Nick Quinn said.
Billed as the ‘Fight of the Century, Mayweather vs McGregor was the biggest boxing match TAB had ever given odds for.
