Floyd Mayweather shows off his belts after beating Marcos Maidana during their WBA welterweight and WBC super welterweight title fight, Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014, in Las Vegas.
It was the rematch fight that most fans wanted to see after Maidana proved himself a challenge to Mayweather the first time the two fighters squared off back in May of this year. Maidana tried his best to challenge Floyd again, but Mayweather didn’t disappoint in showing his superiority as a boxer, earning a winning score from all three ringside judges.
After feeling each other out in the first round, Floyd gained a rhythm and timing on Maidana’s movements and began to tag his opponent like he’s famously done to everyone throughout his career.
Maidana stayed aggressive throughout the fight and threw a lot of punches, but most of them didn’t land. In the end, it was Mayweather who landed a higher percentage of punches.
Mayweather probably won’t fight again for the rest of 2014, but reports have shown that his management is in negotiations to finally set up a fight with Manny Pacquaio, possibly by May 2015. Stay tuned…
