Mayweather Beats Maidana on Points

Over in Las Vegas, last night, Floyd Mayweather Junior convincingly beat Marcos Maidana on points.

If doubts existed relating to who actually won the first encounter, there were none this time with Mayweather taking the verdict on all three of the judge’s scorecards, with the scores being:-

• 116-111
• 116-111
• 115-112

The verdict means that Mayweather keeps his WBA and WBC welterweight belts whilst also extending his record to 47-0.

Beforehand it had been suggested that the bout could be rough and that proved to be the case. In the eighth round Mayweather accused Maidana of biting him and reckoned that from that moment on he couldn’t box with his left hand whilst Maidana complained, late on in the fight, Mayweather had caught him with a late blow and then mocked him as he recovered.

But in all honesty Mayweather was rarely troubled by the Argentine wit Maidana struggling, despite his pre-fight boasts, to land a telling punch. Speaking about his victory, Mayweather remarked post-fight,

'I felt sharper in the first fight, my rhythm was off.”

'I got hit with some shots tonight I shouldn't have gotten hit with. But that comes with the sport.'


Whereas Maidana, who was under the illusion he should have got the verdict gave future opponents of Mayweather a pan to beat him, remarking,

“I'm very happy to have fought twice against Floyd Mayweather, I think I did a terrific job.”

'If the judges like a fighter who runs like Floyd there is nothing I can do about it.”

'He's beatable, you have to attack him. When you attack him, he really doesn't know what to do.”

'He is very fast on his feet I will tell you that.'


For his troubles last night, Mayweather earned a cool $32 million taking his ring earnings, in the past year, to over $100 million!
