Here we go again — Floyd “Money” Mayweather was awarded a controversial majority decision victory over huge underdog Marcos Maidana. Two judges saw the fight 116-112 and the third scored it a 114-114 draw.
I scored the fight 118-110 for Maidana, and after the fight the Argentinian said, “I knew he was going to do that. I knew he wasn’t going to fight me like a man.” The fight didn’t look close, Maidana landed the heavier punches and more often, while Mayweather landed only a handful of solid shots throughout the 12 round match.
“If the fans want to see it we can do it again,” Mayweather said. “If that’s what they want, we can do it.”
Mayweather repeated this several times as he was heavily booed during his entire post-fight interview and when he exited the arena.
At the post-fight conference, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer said, “If Mayweather wants that fight, we’ll do it in September.”
Fans applauded and cheered when Maidana was interviewed in the ring, and at the post-fight podium he said, “We did everything possible to win. I think I won, but the judges didn’t see it that way.”
Mayweather said, “I’m glad the crowd cheered for him and stood behind their guy. If he thinks he won, he can get it again in September.”
“Money” was respectful in the post-fight conference and gave praise to his oppo-nent, calling him a “champion” and that he had a beautiful baby.
He also said, “Next time, don’t hit me in the **** so much.” Maidana’s trainer Robert Garcia quickly retorted, “Next time use your gloves.”
