Floyd Mayweather once again reminded the boxing world that he is the game’s premier performer by thoroughly outclassing Mexican superstar Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez this past weekend in Las Vegas.

Inside of a sold-out MGM Grand Garden Arena, Mayweather seemed to effortlessly control the action against his 23-year old foe over the course of twelve rounds. Mayweather did as he pleased on both the offensive and defensive ends before walking out of the building with a majority decision nod as well as his 45th professional victory in as many fights.

There was no one with a better view of the action as Mayweather’s father and trainer Floyd Sr.

Shortly after his son’s triumph, Floyd Sr. shared his thoughts on his performance as well as some dismay towards the 114-114 scorecard issued by judge C.J. Ross.

“I thought he did a beautiful job,” Floyd Sr. stated at the post-fight press conference. “The only thing I didn’t like is that they were talking about a draw. There’s no way in hell that could have been a draw. No way, no means, by any way.

Although nothing is official as of this moment, the wheels appear to be in motion for an interesting welterweight title clash between newly-crowned WBA champion Adrien Broner and former junior welterweight titlist Marcos Maidana.

Each man is coming off of a victory this past June, as Maidana stopped Josesito Lopez in a thriller on June 8 in Carson, Calif. while Broner edged out former champion Paulie Malignaggi two weeks later in Brooklyn.

Catching up with Broner recently, the brash 24-year old seemed to dismiss Maidana right off the bat.

“Anybody who grabs that rope to hang themselves,” said Broner of a possible duel with the Argentinean.

“Numbers speak for themselves,” Broner continued. “Check my views and check his views.”

After a tumultuous 2012 that saw him sitting on the sidelines, IBF junior welterweight champion Lamont Peterson returned with an emphatic victory this past February, battering former titlist Kendall Holt over the course of eight rounds before seeing the fight waived off.

With momentum again on his side, Peterson (31-1-1, 16 KO’s) finds himself in a crucial match later tonight, as he will be locking horns with Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse (33-2, 31 KO’s) inside of the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

Regarded by many as the best fighter at 140 pounds, Matthysse is an iron-willed, heavy-handed puncher who has boxing skills and abilities that are often overlooked.

And while Matthysse last impression left for boxing fans was a chilling one, as he iced Mike Dallas Jr. in under one round, Peterson feels that all the hoopla surrounding his vaunted power has been overplayed.
