Mayweather vs. Canelo Results: Floyd's Superb Defense Leads to Easy Win
Floyd Mayweather was in complete control of Canelo Alvarez in the majority decision, and that was in large part to his spectacular defense.
Despite the fact that Mayweather easily handled Canelo throughout, Money won the fight by majority decision. C.J. Ross, for some reason, had the fight as a draw at 114-114.
What did you think of C.J. Ross and her scorecard?
It was the first career loss for Canelo, who drops now to 42-1-1. Meanwhile, Mayweather continues to be the greatest boxer in the world, moving to 45-0.
When the fighters stepped into the ring, you realized just how big of a size difference there was between the two fighters. There was about a 15-pound difference in favor of Canelo, but that didn't intimidate Money at all.
From the beginning, Floyd's defense shined. His movements were sharp, and at times, it looked like he knew what Alvarez was going to throw before Canelo did.
Through the first five rounds, there wasn't much landing for Canelo. He was able to land some shots to the body from time to time, especially in Round 4, but there were few significant blows to Floyd's head.
Round 6 was where things finally started to pick up. Canelo decided to start fighting very aggressively, and although Floyd was doing a terrific job dodging and blocking, Alvarez was able to land some shots throughout. There was even some jawing between the fighters during the round, and things started to escalate.
Someone should have told Canelo not to try and taunt Money, because Round 7 didn't go well. Floyd completely took control, picking Alvarez apart with some big shots
The eighth round might have been Canelo's best. Despite being in a big hole, he kept up the tempo and stayed close to Floyd throughout the round. He kept landing shots on Floyd close and inside, and it might have been one of the only rounds where Canelo was the clear winner.
The only truly big shot that Canelo landed on Mayweather came in Round 10. Floyd was backed up against the ropes, and Alvarez came out of nowhere with a big shot that got the crowd pumped up.
It was too little, too late, however, as Mayweather coasted to a win.
Plenty of celebrities were watching, and former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver made note of Mayweather's defense.

Even at 36 years old, Mayweather can still stay elusive in the ring. Alvarez is a very powerful boxer, but that was completely negated by the fact that he couldn't land any shots.
It seems like Mayweather isn't showing any signs of slowing down, and as long as his defense is as good as it was on Saturday night, he'll stay undefeated for quite some time.
