Great Great night of fights. It seems like The Money Team was on the losing end of the TV fights. Ashley Theophane loss his fight to Cano and Ishe Smith lost his belt to Carlos Molina. Danny Garcia and Lucas Matthysse gave the fans their money worth and Danny kept his belt. Floyd Mayweather had to pull in the win for The Money Team.
At 36 Floyd Mayweather's speed and quickness was just amazing. Alvarez tried to catch Floyd all night but he just couldn't. Floyd hit him with everything including the kitchen sink. Canelo was able to take the punches well. As most experts said, Canelo was just not experienced enough yet. Maybe if they fought in about 3 more years, but Floyd will be retired by then.
Now for some reason we can't have a fight without a controversy. Most people in attendance and ringside gave Canelo 2 rounds at the most. That would mean Floyd won 118-110. That was not the case. One judge had it 117-111 and another judge had it 116-112, while CJ Ross had it dead even at 114-114. Even Canelo knows that was not right or accurate. Ross is the same guy that blew the Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley fight. I'm pretty sure he will be under investigation.
Nobody complained and the fans got their money's worth. Floyd continued to dominate not only his division of 147lbs but took on the champion at 154lbs. He earned a gold belt made especially for this fight. Floyd thanked the fans in the end of his interview. He said Canelo is a great young champion and he will bounce back. Canelo said he just couldn't catch Floyd. He was a little frustrated but said Floyd is the champion and he is smart in the ring.
Nobody felt cheated and we have to wait and see who Floyd fights next. More than likely it will be the winner of Amir Khan vs Devon Alexander.
