Floyd Mayweather Jr. remains undefeated in the boxing world, gaining the new junior middleweight champion title.

Money Mayweather beat Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez by majority decision at the MGM Grand Garden Arena Saturday night. Judge C.J. Ross questionably scored it 114-114, but she was overruled by tallies of 116-112 by Dave Moretti and 117-111 by Craig Metcalfe for Mayweather.

Although the judges had it far closer than viewers, it was never a close match. Mayweather, 36, was simply sharper and better on his feet than Alvarez. Mayweather took his World Boxing Council and World Boxing Assn. light middleweight belts.

Mayweather, who is expected to earn $41.5 million from the fight, was humble in victory but did admit it was one of his better fights. Alvarez (42-1-1) offered no excuses and said, through a translator, “I didn’t know how to get him. He’s very elusive and intelligent… We were trying to catch him.”
