The Result: Mayweather wins by unanimous decision

Floyd Mayweather extended his winning form to 47 victories from 47 pro fights, with the judges scoring his bout against Marcos Maidana 116-111, 116-111 and 115-112. The fight wasn't without controversy, with Maidana appearing to bite Mayweather's hand in the 8th round, and Maidana dropping a point in round 10 for tripping self-nicknamed 'The Best Ever'.

In contrast to their first fight, Mayweather frustrated Argentine Maidana throughout the fight. Gone was Maidana's relentless pressure, and an athletic Mayweather made sure that when Maidana did come forward his punches met thin air.

Post-fight Maidana claimed that he won the fight, but to most it was clear that Mayweather had done more than enough for the victory.

Fight Build Up: Mayweather and Maidana set for hugely anticipated rematch

The pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather risks his 46-0 record when he faces hard hitting Marcos Maidana in a rematch after his thrilling win last May.

Maidana pushed Mayweather to his limits when they met in May and subsequently demanded the rematch that you can see LIVE on BoxNation on September 13.

Mayweather V Maidana 2 Face Off

The MGM Grand, Las Vegas, will play host once again, as sport's highest earning superstar returns to the biggest of stages to defend his WBC and WBA Super World Welterweight titles.

The first meeting between Mayweather and Maidana was an absorbing contest from first bell to last. Challenger "El Chino" brought buckets of aggression and hostility in the ring, and disrupted the easygoing, elusive style that's boosted Mayweather to the very summit of the sport.

But the Argentine challenger couldn't sustain the energy of his early fight domination and faded away, as 45 others have previously, succumbing to a majority decision defeat as "Money" Mayweather extended his unparalleled run to 46-0.

Maidana will take great heart from his first performance, and as father time marches on, the smallest of chinks have started to appear in the armour of 37-year-old Mayweather. The greatest fighter of his generation isn't so called for no reason, however. While he may have showed minor signs of deterioration, there's no questioning the size of the task that Chino Maidana has on his hands.

Mayweather has three fights left as part of a highly lucrative television output deal he signed in February 2013. Win those three fights, starting with this mouthwatering rematch, and he'd move to 49-0. His place in the annals of history is already assured, but the box office superstar recently suggested he'd be tempted to continue and attempt to reach 50 straight wins before hanging up his gloves.

BoxNation will be LIVE and EXCLUSIVE in the UK as we show a fifth consecutive Floyd Mayweather bout to once again prove we're the Channel of Champions!

A 10x3 Minute Rounds 162lbs Catch Weight Contest

Angulo needs a win after two losses, faces De la Rosa

Hard hitting Alfredo Angulo is in desperate need of a win to propel him back towards world title fights when he steps up from light-middleweight to face 22-2 James De la Rosa at a 162lbs catch weight.

The Mexican 32-year-old never backs down from a fight, and there's no shame in his two recent losses against pound for pound contenders Erislandy Lara and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. However, if the California resident wants to force his way back into contention for a world title and big money fights, he'll need to put away De la Rosa in style and add to his impressive record of 18 KO's.
