"The Moment" has come and gone, and it's one that we'll be talking about for some time.

Boxing's pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather survived—and you can say that literally—the hard-charging effort of Argentine slugger Marcos "El Chino" Maidana on Saturday night, unifying the WBC and WBA Welterweight Championships with a majority decision at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

It was, by far, the closest call of Mayweather's dominant run at the top of boxing, and you can be sure a rematch will be in order.

That rematch was talked about extensively at the post-fight press conference, which featured a bit of everything, and you can all but bank on us being right back here in September.
