Mayweather wins majority decision vs Canelo

Floyd "Money" Mayweather proven he is the best in boxing dominating the fight against his young opponent from Mexico, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. But the only puzzling thing about the bout was why one judge saw it as a draw and had the world's best pound-for-pound boxer saying he thought her scorecard "was a joke."

Judge CJ Ross scored it a draw, 114-114, roaring boos from the crowd. The other judges scored it 117-111 and 116-112 for Mayweather. Ross has been involved in controversial decisions in the past. She scored the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley fight in 2012 for Bradley.

"I thought it was a joke," Mayweather said when asked about the scoring.

Meanwhile, Danny Garcia pummels Lucas Matthysse to retain his unified WBA/WBC super-lightweight title.
