Floyd Mayweather remains undefeated. Tonight’s match versus Marcos Maidana was just about as much as we’ve seen him have to work for it late — at least in recent years — as Maidana came out throwing hard early. Ultimately, Mayweather turned the fight around late to take the final decision. Judge Mike Pernick had it at a draw 114-114 while Burt Clments and Dave Moretti ruled 117-111 and 116-112, respectively, for Mayweather.
This is a low blow that Maidana hit Mayweather with in the eighth round.
“I’d describe this fight as a tough competitive fight,” Mayweather said after the fight. “Normally when the fans come, I box, I move, I blow the guy out. Tonight I wanted to stand and fight and give the fans their money’s worth.”
Mayweather said that he’d give Maidana a rematch. “If the fans want to see it again, we’ll do it again.”
Meanwhile, Maidana thought he had won. “I definitely won this fight,” he said in Spanish. “He didn’t fight like a man like I thought he would.”
Update: Maybe that’s not what Maidana said?
@Max_Kellerman Poor translating job by showtime…Chino never said "he didn't fight like a man"…He said: "he hadn't fight a man before"
