Mayweather proved that his two-year layoff didn’t affect his boxing skills.  His critics, however, will point out that he failed to finish off his smaller, hand-picked opponent, winning the bout but not in spectacular knock-out fashion.  You got the impression that he could have knocked out Marquez but didn’t want to make the effort.

Tonight’s victory by Mayweather will lead to the inevitable showdown with Manny Pacquiao, a skilled boxer who will provide a real challenge to Mayweather.  In the meantime, Mayweather remains undefeated, increasing his record to 40-0 with 25 KOs.

Our thanks to Las Vegas photographer Erik Kabik for these great photos.
