Floyd Mayweather prevailed with a hard-fought majority decision victory over Maidana in the main event on Saturday on SHOWTIME PPV in front of 16,268 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Judge Michael Pernick scored the fight a draw (114-114) while Burt Clemens scored 117-111 and Dave Moretti 116-112.
Maidana did everthing he could, but fell short, Maidana, who said he needed to throw 100 punches a round to win, came out blazing, suffocating Mayweather against the ropes and doing just that – throwing precisely 100 punches in the opening round. But the difference was accuracy, as Mayweather (46-0, 26 KOs) landed 54 percent of his total punches thrown compared to Maidana's 26 percent landed.
