Floyd 'Money' Mayweather Secures Flawless Victory Over Saul Canelo Alvarez.

Still champion: Floyd Mayweather was hugely impressive in beating Saul Alvarez over 12 rounds in Las Vegas

All roads led to the MGM gardens Arena, Las Vegas to witness the battle of the invincibles. Both boxers American Floyd Mayweather and Mexican Canelo Alvarez have had an unblemished record all through their professional career. Before the showdown, Alvarez had walked into the ring for a professional boxing match 42 times, 42 times he's left with his hand raised high in the air. Mayweather not to be outdone was also on a 44 match winning streak in as many bouts. So when it was announced four months ago that these two raging bulls would be coming head to head for the first time in their history, the boxing world paused a bit and wondered what might possibly happen when an unstoppable object hits an immovable object?

It was a night that lived up to the billing as even top American celebrities like Justin Bieber, Heidi Klum, Jack Nicholson,  Denzel Washington, LL Cool J, Sean 'Diddy' Combs and even rapper Lil Wayne who acted as a 'town crier' to herald the grand entry of Mayweather, all graced the occasion.

After all said and done, it was 36 year old Mayweather that dominated throughout the fight. He seemed unfazed by Alvarez's 15 extra pounds, as he constantly hit the target and left his opponent hitting thin air. The American really demonstrated all his defensive mastery in shutting out the 23-year-old Alvarez over 12 rounds.

Mayweather now has a professional record of 45 wins without a single defeat;won this bout with two judges decision of 116-112,117-111,but got a draw on the score card of the third judge with 114-114,which made the whole MGM Grand Arena go all surprised with such a decision as even Mayweather gave a swear word saying :'What the F**k'.

Despite some baleful exchanges in the ring, the 36 year old still had gracious words for Alvarez ‘Canelo is young and strong and great Mexican champion. I take my hat off to him and the people of Mexico. He put up a good fight.’

This bout would make the American pocket a sum of $45m as part of his rolling contract with Showtime Pay Per View (PPV) deal. Alvarez on the other hand would also pocket a sum of $12m, but then would have to come back stronger now that he has suffered a first professional loss in his 8 years boxing carrier.

"I didn't know how to get him, it's extremely simple," Alvarez explained. "He's a great fighter, very intelligent. The frustration was getting in there, but he's a great fighter. We tried to catch him."
