Post-fight reaction from Floyd Mayweather Jr. after he beat Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on Saturday (September 14th) to secure the WBC and WBA light-middleweight titles

(on first judge scoring the fight as a tie) Floyd Mayweather Jr., Middleweight champion, said:  “I thought it was a joke. I was kinda shocked, but I am not the judge. My job is go out there fight and leave the fight in the judges hands. I wanted to get the knockout, things happen. Actually, me and Canelo bumped arms I don’t know what round, could have been fifth. We bumped arms, I kinda hurt my elbow so I stopped using my jab for a couple rounds. But then, me being a true champion, I had to continue to use my jab, and I came out victorious tonight.”

“Canelo still is the future of boxing. Along with Adrien Broner and a lot of other young champions that are up and coming. Only thing they have to do is wait their turn. But this opportunity presented itself, Canelo took the full opportunity, and he went out there and fought his heart out.”

“I think I would have been sharper if I was able to use my jab. I started off using my jab, then we bumped arms, I dunno in the fifth round, things happen. Go back to the drawing board, talk it over with Al Hayman, talk it over and see what we come up with.”

“Everyone is hunting for Floyd Mayweather. Everyone trying to get the lottery ticket of Floyd Mayweather. As of right now, I don’t know who I am fighting next. I want to go home and take a vacation.”
