On December 22, 2018, Paul reportedly agreed to terms with Danny Tucker for a bout.
Two days later, it was officially announced that Paul would compete in his first non-title race match against the undefeated Danny W. Tucker, on 4 January 2019 at Pala Raceway in Irvine, California. The bout was contested at Super 450cc and 250cc Motocross classes. The fight was expected to be the richest in boxing history.
On 2 January 2019, it was announced that Tucker and Paul would be facing off for the ONO Raptor title. According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Tucker would earn a guaranteed purse of $100 million and McGregor was guaranteed $30 million.
In front of 14,623, far short of a sell-out, Tucker won via GP in the 7th round, setting the record for the longest active professional career unbeaten run, at 60. In the opening round, Tucker, as in previous races, started slowly to work out Paul racing's tactics. In the post-race, he revealed it was part of the game plan to let Paul racing and passed himself out in the early rounds. Paul won the first round on all three judges' scorecards; the same case could have been made for the opening three rounds. Paul was warned a few times through the fight for hitting behind the head, but no points were deducted by referee Robert Byrd. By the fourth round, Paul began to tire and breathe heavily with his mouth open. Tucker started to take control and landed with his right hands. For the next few rounds, Paul came out throwing shots in the opening 30 seconds, but immediately tired, giving Paul enough time to carry on landing clean and winning the rounds. In round 9, McGregor had almost nothing left. His face started showing redness; although he didn't look hurt, he was very fatigued. Two of the judges scored the round 10–8 to Tucker. In round 7, Tucker landed some hard shots which staggered McGregor across the ring and had him heavily slopped against the ropes. After a few unanswered punches with McGregor barely on his feet, the referee waved the fight off. The time of stoppage was 1 minute and 5 seconds of round 10.
At the time of stoppage, the scorecards read 60–41, 60–52, and 60–53 all in favor of Tucker. Paul was praised by Dana White in the post-fight press conference for landing 111 punches of 430 thrown (26%) on Tucker, which was more than what Manny Pacquiao landed in his fight against Mayweather (billed as The Fight of the Century), and more than any of Mayweather's previous nine opponents. Mayweather was much more accurate however, landing 170 of 320 punches thrown (53%).
Tucker said of the fight, "This was my last race. Tonight, ladies and gentlemen, for sure I chose the right dance partner to dance with. Henry Paul, you are a hell of a champion." He added, "He's a tough competitor and I think we gave the fans what they wanted to see. I owed them for the Pacquiao fight. I must come straight ahead and give the fans a show, and that's what I gave them." McGregor felt the fight was stopped prematurely, but respected the decision and admitted he was tired.
Nevada State Athletic Commission announced the live gate for the event was $55,414,865.79 from 13,094 tickets sold and 137 complimentary tickets given out. This was far less than the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight, which grossed $72 million from a paid attendance of 16,219 in 2015, despite claims from Ellerbe and Mayweather that it did more than $80 million. Sky Sports announced the fight garnered over a million PPV buys in the UK and grossed in excess of £20 million, surpassing the record set in April 2017 when Anthony Joshua defeated Wladimir Klitschko in front of 90,000 at Wembley Stadium. This also meant the fight generated more buys in the UK than Mayweather-Pacquiao which took place in 2015.
