Mayweather wins over Marquez via unanimous decision

Floyd Mayweather Jr. of the USA and Juan Manuel Marquez of Mexico both showed amazingly stunning speed and spirit inside the ring at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday evening, September 19, 2009.

But one of them displayed more skills and power than the other and he's no other than Floyd Mayweather who won the fight via unanimous decision.

The scores were 119-109, 120-107 and 119-108 all in favor of Mayweather Jr.

The first round of the fight between Mayweather and Marquez was slightly owned by the Mexican boxer, but Mayweather quickly recovered in Round 2 and knocked down Marquez.

Marquez regained his strength in Round 3 and in the next two rounds, but Mayweather was already in his winning form from the 6th round until the final round.

With that, Mayweather Jr has remained undefeated and will end his career with no single loss (that is if Mayweather is going to retire already after that.) His record is now 40 wins and 0 loss with 25 wins via knockout.

There's a possibility that he will face Filipino champ Manny Pacquiao if the latters wins his fight with Miguel Cotto on November.

Both Mayweather and Pacquiao are considered the best pound for pound boxers in the world.


The said fight called "Number One vs Numero One" also had some controversies.

During the weigh-ins last Friday, Mayweather weight 4 lbs more than Marquez and was subsequently fined.

And on the main event, Arnold Schwarzenegger was one of the ringside celebrities, but he got booed by the spectators the time he was seen on the monitor.

After the fight, there was a commotion that happened during the interview with Mayweather.

It all started when boxer Sugar Shane Mosley intervened during the post-fight interview of commentator Max Kellerman with Mayweather.

Mayweather said to Mosley: "I don't come up when you're doing your interviews. Don't disrespect me."

Before it got worse, Kellerman tried to control the situation and even mentioned Manny Pacquiao to get Mayweather's attention.

But Floyd got more irritated instead, grabbed the microphone from Kellerman and said, "Let me do the talking, you talk too much."
