The rematch between Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana was not nearly as exciting as their first go-round and that made it a better fight for Mayweather. The fight was far from “Mayhem!”
Mayweather kept his WBC welterweight championship and raised his record to 47-0 by reverting to his quickness and craft. He won a unanimous decision and quieted a large, melodic contingent of Argentine fans among the 16,144 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Mayweather will earn at least $32 million for the fight.
