Mayweather Jabs Ref, Says Maidana Was a WWE Wrestler

By Carlos Arias

LAS VEGAS --- Floyd Mayweather wasn't exactly complimentary of the job referee Tony Weeks did during his fight against Marcos Maidana on Saturday night at the MGM Grand.

Mayweather, who won a majority decision, believes he was hit by way too many low blows and Maidana was allowed to use rough tactics throughout the fight.

"Look, I'm not here to talk bad about Tony Weeks," Mayweather said. "But, I mean, you all seen it, you all know what was going on. A lot of shots, bad shots, but he gonna do whatever he has to do to win. The only thing I can do is respect him for that."

Did Mayweather expect that kind of attack from Maidana?

"He's a rugged guy," Mayweather said. "A very, very rugged guy. Now, in September if we fight again, will it be the same fight? Absolutely not. Absolutely not. I could have made the fight a lot easier if I wanted to."

Did any of Maidana's overhand rights ever hurt Mayweather?

"He's a strong fighter," Mayweather said. "It's not like I never been hit with a big shot before. He's a strong fighter. I mean, you seen I came in at 148 and came in at 165 tonight."

Mayweather was forced to make adjustments to Maidana's overhand rights.

"Mentally I'm just a strong person," Mayweather said. "I had to take my game up. This is what I've done my whole life. I've never done anything but box. Like I done said before, I've faced every style and that's the difference between me and any other fighter. I can make adjustments always."

Mayweather was asked about the record number of punches Maidana was able to land on him. No fighter has ever landed 221 total punches on Mayweather like Maidana did, according to CompuBox stats.

"Are we talking about shots to the head or low blows? Bad shots," Mayweather said. "He was the guy holding me with one hand and hitting me with the other. I thought I was a boxer and he was a WWE wrestler. That's what I thought. The head butt? I couldn't see. Come on, you know what it is. Rewind the tape. He'll tell you what it is. Whether it was a punch or a head butt, it's all about the end results."

Mayweather said he will offer Maidana a rematch in September as long as the money is right, but there will be a change.

"In September if we do it again, I don't want Tony Weeks as the referee," Mayweather said. "But I do like Tony Weeks. I feel like tonight he was just letting everything fly."
