He’s Baaaaacck. After a 21 month layoff, Floyd Mayweather Jr. returned to the ring with the destruction of Juan Manuel Marquez. In one of his most domination performances to date, Floyd “Money” Mayweather completely took apart the Mexican Warrior 12 punishing rounds. The fight, held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, was Mayweather’s first fight in 21 months, but the pound for pound king had no ring rust. Immediately, Mayweather’s size, speed and power were obvious.
In round two, Mayweather sent Marquez to the canvaz with a devestating left hook. The rest of the fight looked like an easy sparring session for Mayweather, who constantly battered the smaller man with jabs and straight rights. Mayweather improved his record to 40 wins, 0 Losses, 25KO’s. Marquez record falls to 50 wins, 5 Losses, 1 draw, 37 KO
With this domination performance, Mayweather clearly can reclaim his top stop as the pound for pound king.
On a snoozer of an undercard, Chris John defeated veteran Rocky Juarez and Michael Katsidis defeated Vincente Escobedo with a 12 round decision. Both fights had very little action, with John outworking Juarez for the win. Juarez did come on strong with 1 min left in the 12th round, but it was too little too late. John retained his WBA Featherweight title.
