Las Vegas, NV (SportsNetwork.com) -
Floyd Mayweather took a unanimous decision over Marcos Rene Maidana to retain his WBC Welterweight title and remain undefeated on Saturday night.
Mayweather (47-0, 26 KOs) took two scores of 116-11, and the other at 115-112 to defeat Maidana (35-5, 31 KOs) for the second time in four months. In the previous fight in early May, Mayweather won two scorecards with the other card showing a tie score.
Mayweather danced around the ring for much of the early part of the fight, avoiding Maidana's punches and using counters to keep Maidana honest, especially with some hard, straight rights.
In the fourth round, Maidana got Mayweather on the ropes and was swinging away, connecting a straight right to the head and a few body shots.
