Las Vegas, NV- (Showtime PPV) Champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KOs) UD 12 Robert Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KOs) (WBC 147 lb. title) Scores: 117-111 across the board. Floyd is not impacted by a punch or punches that would offset his advantages in speed and overall boxing ability. Talk of a Saul Alvarez match in September ongoing as Floyd is said to be counting $80 million!
MARES WAS HOT EARLY & LATE
New champion Abner Mares (26-0-1, 14 KOs) TKO 9 Daniel Ponce de Leon (44-5, 35 KOs) (WBC 126 lb. title) A knockdown of Ponce de Leon in round two prompted a comeback of sorts. Shortlived, the fight was halted in round nine by referee Jay Nady. Time was 2:20.
LOVE GETS GIFT OVER “BURNED” ROSADO
J’Leon Love (16-0, 8 KOs) SD 10 Gabriel Rosado (21-7, 13 KOs) Controversial scores have Love appologizing afterwards. Ripoff!
SOLID PROSPECT @ 122 GETS EXPECTED WIN
Leo Santa Cruz (24-0-1, 14 KOs) TKO 5 Alexander Munoz (36-5, 28 KOs)
WLAD KLITSCHKO RETAINS HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
SAP Arena, Germany- Champion Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 52 KOs) KO 6 Francesco Pianeta (28-1-1, 15 KOs) – WBO/IBF/WBA heavyweight (200 lbs. +) title. At 37, Wlad is still in great shape. Although this was not a risky encounter, is there EVEN one out there for Klitschko? As for his fighting in the 2016 Olympics, shame on you for even thinking about it.
