It was built up as mayhem.  Obviously, referee Kenny Bayless didn’t get the memo.  Floyd “Money” Mayweather (47-0, 26KO’s) VS Marcos “El Chino” Maidana (35-5, 31KO’s), was supposed to be an extremely exciting rematch.  The most exciting rematch since Floyd Mayweather VS Jose Luis Castillo.  Over officiating was the story of the night though.  For the price of $69.95, this PPV was definitely not worth ordering, all thanks to Kenny Bayless.  Everyone was excited for all out war between Maidana and Mayweather.  What was Kenny Bayless thinking?  LET THEM FIGHT!!!  If one arm is free, let them punch out of the clinch.  Bayless was definitely more tired at the end then both fighters combined.  His constant interruptions of the action were absolutely ridiculous.

I must say though, even through horrible officiating, Marcos Maidana did not look the same.  The outcome would have been the same, even if Kenny Bayless let them fight.  The “god” that is known as Floyd Mayweather, had Maidana figured out from the opening bell.  His defense and footwork really got into Maidana’s head in the first 2 rounds, and really threw him off his game plan.  Maidana was not letting his hands go as much as he should have, which is what he depends on to win fights.  I was personally against this rematch from the beginning.  It turned out to be exactly what i thought it would be.  STUPID!!  First of all, Mayweather has only a few fights left.  No one wants to see him waste one with an opponent that he has already defeated.  Second of all, we all know what happens when Floyd gets a second chance at somebody.  He dominates.  There is truly only one fight that everyone wants to see, and it should have happened 3 years ago.  FLOYD MAYWEATHER VS MANNY PACQUIAO.  Lets just forget about the Amir Kahn’s, the Danny Garcia’s, the Keith Thurman’s (great fighter).  Lets just forget all about them, at least for now!!!

Mickey Bey Wins?

Mickey Bey (20-1-1, 10KO’s) VS Miguel Vasquez (34-3, 13KO’s) was also a disgrace.  This was one not worth watching either.  It ended with the scores of 115-113 (Bey), 115-113 (Vasquez), and 119-109 (Bey).  I have stated in a previous article that the judging is corrupt.  119-109???  That is an absolute outrage.  The fight was so slow and so close round by round, there is absolutely no way someone can come up with that score.  Anyway, congrats to Mickey Bey on winning the IBF Lightweight title. His first title.

Santa Cruz Excites!

It was a very short fight, but exciting non the less.  Leo Santa Cruz (27-0-1, 15KO’s) always delivers.  Santa Cruz, one of the more exciting fighters to watch, always has very high punch outputs.  It was the same story last night.  After an exciting first round, he ended the fight early with a second round KO of Manuel Roman with hard straight right to the jaw.
