On Saturday night, Floyd Mayweather again showed why he is the world’s best fighter by thoroughly outclassing one of the sport’s rising prizefighters, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, over twelve rounds.

In front of a raucous crowd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Mayweather nullified all of Canelo’s weapons with superior counter-punching, airtight defense, and deft movement.

Two scorecards reading 117-111 and 116-112 oversaw a ridiculous 114-114 tally from judge C.J. Ross, granting Mayweather his 45th victory.

Watching the action from ringside, IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander seemed taken aback by Floyd’s performance.
