Marquez Saw a Draw or Close Win For Mayweather

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez believes last week's welterweight unification between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Marcos Rene Maidana could have been scored a draw or close win, 7 rounds to 5, in favor of Mayweather. Mayweather won a twelve round majority decision. One judge had the fight scored a 114-114 draw, as did several others at ringside. Marquez was dominated by Mayweather over twelve rounds several years ago.

"I saw a bout with more wrestling than boxing. I saw a draw or a win by Mayweather with a very small margin of two points," said Juan Manuel. "Maidana missed a lot of punches. Mayweather moved well from the waist, and the only good shots that were landed were the counters by Floyd when Maidana missed. That's why [the judges] saw him winning. It was entertaining, but it was not a convincing victory."

I'm with Marquez on this one. I saw a draw, or at most 7-5 Mayweather, and I don't dislike Mayweather.
