Marcos Maidana Bites Floyd Mayweather, but Money Still Comes Out on Top

Well we "almost" saw the same thing as last time. However Marcos was not as aggressive and Floyd took more chances instead of staying on the ropes. In the later rounds especially in round 8, Floyd and Marcos got tangled up and Floyd complained that Marcos bit his finger. The ref could not tell and neither could the ringside doctor.
