Floyd Mayweather Jr. was so dominant during his bout versus Saul Canelo Alvarez. The final score however ended up with a controversial score from one of the judge.

Mayweather easily won over Alvarez at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, September 15, 2013.

It was a 12-round domination for Mayweather as he outboxed and defended well against the 23-year-old Alvarez.

The American boxer showed that he is well prepared for the fight with his speed and pinpoint jabs. Mayweather raised his clean boxing record to 45-0. In contrast, Alvarez suffered his first boxing career loss.

Despite the dominating performance of Mayweather, controversial judge C.J. Ross scored the fight with a draw, 114-114. Luckily for Mayweather, Ross scorecard didn’t matter as two other judges scored the fight 116-112 and 117-111 both in his favor.

The controversial Ross is the same judge who had a questionable scorecard during the bout between Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley wherein the Filipino boxer lost.
