Sorry 50 Cent, Floyd Mayweather is still undefeated.
Tonight, Mayweather faced Marcos Maidana in a rematch for the welterweight title. After a furious effort from Maidana, whose attacks challenged the champion from Round 1, Mayweather prevailed with a unanimous decision to hold onto his status as the undefeated champ of the world.
Controversy surrounded Round 8 of the match. Mayweather protested to the referee that Maidana bit his left hand while his glove was palming his face. According to Mayweather after the decision was made, his left hand remained numb and out of use for the remainder of the match. Maidana was aggressive throughout th3 12 rounds, leaving Mayweather with cuts on his face, lip and nose.
At the end of the match, Mayweather was probed about the probability of a match against a highly-anticipated opponent: Manny Pacquiao. He assured that he was not opposed to it. He also graded his overall performance:
“I give myself a C, C-. I am better than that. I got hit with shots I shouldn’t be hit with,” he said.
Mayweather’s record advances to 47-0.
