Floyd Mayweather won a seemingly wide twelve round decision on Saturday night in Las Vegas. Judge Craig Metcalf scored it 117-111 for Floyd, giving Canelo rounds two, ten and twelve. Judge Dave Moretti scored it 116-11r for Floyd, giving Canelo rounds three, nine, eleven and twelve. C.J. Ross had it 114-114, giving Canelo rounds one, three, eight, nine, eleven and twelve. Ross also had Timothy Bradley beating Manny Pacquiao.
“Canelo Alvarez and I have big fights coming up this weekend. His is the ring and mine in treatment.
I will not be at the fight this Saturday to cheer Canelo to victory since I have voluntarily admitted myself into a treatment facility.
I explained this to Canelo and he understood that my health and long term recovery from my disease must come first.
Thank you for your understanding. I ask for your support and privacy during this difficult time for me and my family.”
