Mayweather defeats Maidana in one-sided bout

first_imgFloyd Mayweather, (47-0, 26 KOs), retained his WBC and WBA welterweight titles, along with his WBC super welterweight title, with an unimpressively dominant decision over Marcos Maidana, (35-5, 31 KOs), that had the 16,144 fans in attendance at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas booing through most of the final round. Scores were 115-112, 116-111, 116-111.Like in his only other rematch, against Jose Luis Castillo, Mayweather adjusted from the first fight by minimizing the sustained action with constant movement around the ring and grabbing his opponent when the ring was cut off.As a consequence, Maidana did not have the early success against Mayweather that he had in their first fight, which effectively sapped the fight of any drama or competitive potential. Maidana did occasionally catch Mayweather with his right hand, but unlike their first fight where Mayweather took risks in engaging Maidana against the ropes and standing in the pocket, resulting in a memorable bout, Mayweather’s primary goal this night was to avoid danger.Ironically the most discomfort Mayweather suffered in the fight was a bizarre incident in round eight where Maidana appeared to bite Mayweather’s glove that was pressing onto Maidana’s face. Referee Kenny Bayless also deducted a point from Maidana in round ten for pushing Mayweather down with a forearm to the neck.Mayweather was his usual gracious self in his postfight comments, thanking the fans and saying he could perform better.last_img read more
