Another Victory Win....Mayweather Wins Re-Match Fight Against Marcos Maidana
Mayweather dominated Maidana from the opening bell, using his boxing skills to keep the Argentine off balance and pile up points on his way to a unanimous 12-round decision to retain his welterweight and super welterweight titles before a crowd at the MGM Grand that sometimes booed the lack of action.
It almost came at a cost, though, in a bizarre scene in the eighth round when Mayweather claimed that Maidana bit him on his wrist while they were in a clinch near the center of the ring.

Though he wasn't marked up, he was upset over the bite.
"We were tangled in the center of the ring and I didn't realize what it was.
Then I saw that he bit me," Mayweather said. "After the eighth round my fingers were numb, I couldn't use my left hand."

Maidana denied he bit Mayweather.
"How can he say I bit the glove with my mouthpiece?" Maidana asked. "I'm not a dog."
The fight was a marked contrast to their first bout in May, when Maidana roughed Mayweather up in a close fight.
Mayweather won that bout, but it was close enough for Mayweather to offer an opponent only the second rematch of his career.
Maidana won't get a third fight after failing to land any big punches.
Two ringside judges scored it 116-111 for Mayweather, while the third had it 115-112. The Associated Press had it 117-110.
