Mayweather Shows Marquez Who’s Number One!Category: Boxing
“Number One / Numero Uno” was a boxing event top-billed by two of the best boxers there is today, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Juan Manuel Marquez.
They faced each other in a 12-round 144 lbs catchweight fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on September 19, 2009 which was in conjunction with Mexican Independence Day, traditionally a big boxing weekend.
In a highly partisan Mexican crowd, Mayweather showed Marquez why he was the former pound for pound king by pummeling the latter for all of 12 rounds in a mismatch of massive proportion. Marquez even kissed the canvas once in the second round. When Mayweather’s rage subsided, all the judges scored the fight for him with the scores: 118-109, 120-107 and 119-108. Floyd Mayweather, Jr. wins via Unanimous Decision!
