One of the first things the champ said is he thought that he can do better. He hasnít been in the ring since he stopped fighter Ricky Hatton at MGM Grand Garden Arena in December 2007.

All of the judges had Mayweather as the unanimous winner by 118-109, 119-108 and 120-107. During the second round Mayweather connected a punch that landed Marquez on the canvas with a fierce left hook. That didnít stop Marquez.
