Floyd Mayweather scored a clear winner over Saul Alvarez by 86 members of press

Bobby Hunter's findings illustrate how bizarre the CJ Ross score was

FIGHTING in his adopted MGM Grand Las Vegas home, Floyd Mayweather stretched his amazing unbeaten run to 45-0 (26) as he captured Saul "Canelo" Alvarez WBC and WBA light-middleweight titles outclassing the 23-year-old Mexican icon in front of a capacity 16,746 fans. Mayweather certainly is "The One" as he dominated this fight from the start against a fighter who was expected to test the 36-year-old multi-division champion. Closed circuit sales in Las Vegas alone was 25,403 as fans flocked to see if Canelo could somehow the self proclaimed "Money Man".

It remains to be seen if this "The One" Promotion beats the PPV sales record set in 2007 when Floyd scored a narrow points win over Oscar De la Hoya. That fight generated 2.45 Million PPV Buys ($136,853,700).

After Floyd had schooled his opponent over 12 rounds the result appeared a certainty. But no. Somehow Las Vegas judge C.J Ross had this fight a draw 114-114. A terrible score that was thankfully overruled by the other judges, Dave Moretti (116-112) and Craig Metcalfe (117-111). C.J Ross, if you remember, scored Timothy Bradley a 115-113 winner over Manny Pacquiao last year, a score that contributed to one of the most contentious decisions of recent times.

Ross score was not just overruled by her two counter parts, but also the boxing press. Every press member polled (86) had Floyd a wide winner. All scores are below along with this writer's scorecard, the Punch stats from the fight and a press score average.
