The numbers are just absolutely absurd. The folks at CompuBox were nice enough to shoot this over right away, and the fight was every bit as lopsided as these numbers.

CompuBox Analysis: Total domination by Floyd who held Marquez to single digit connects in every round. Floyd distributed his attack, landing 59%of his power shots and 59% of his jabs. Floyd landed more jabs each round than Marquez did total punches. Floyd’s performance was reminiscent of Roy Jones’ domination of Reggie Johnson. Jones outlanded Johnson 276-48, but one can’t place Johnson in the same class as Marquez, a future Hall of Famer.
Bad Left Hook's Take: I honestly do not understand how anyone gave any round to Marquez. Mayweather toyed with him, and Marquez never landed more than eight punches in a single round, and VERY few of ANY of his landed punches (a whopping 69 in 12 rounds) were good, solid shots that affected Floyd at all. He never hurt him, never had him shaken, never even backed him down. The only times Floyd backed away were to reset or lure Marquez into yet another set of sharp jabs, an unstoppable left hook, or a straight right, which is a punch he didn't even use as much as usual, it seemed.
