New, comments

Floyd Mayweather went to 47-0 overall and 2-0 against Marcos Maidana last night on Showtime PPV.

FLOYD MAYWEATHER

"He's a tough opponent and I did what I had to do tonight. I just didn't stay on the ropes. I have a couple bumps and bruises because he's a wild young fighter. My father told me to hit and not get hit and that's what we did.

"I felt sharper in the first fight. I felt a little dry and dead in this fight. I give myself a C, a C-minus. I could have been better. I got hit with some shots tonight that I shouldn't have gotten hit with. But that comes with the sport."

"He bit my fingers so my fingers were numb. After the 8th round my hand was numb and I really couldn't use my left hand."

"I'm not ducking or dodging any opponent. If the Manny Pacquiao fight presents itself let's make it happen. I don't know who I'll fight in May but I expect to fight. Manny needs to focus on the guy that's in front of him. Once he gets past that task we'll see what the future holds."

MARCOS MAIDANA

"I thought I won the fight but if the judges want to give the fight to a guy who runs that's their decision. I feel like I was the aggressor and I kept applying the pressure. He kept holding and pushing and the ref never did anything about it. Instead, the ref took a point away from me."

"Maybe he thinks I'm a dog, but I never bit him. He was rubbing my eyes with his glove. Maybe he had his glove in my mouth, but I don't think I bit him."

LEO SANTA CRUZ

"I trained really hard and I did what I had to do to give the fans a great fight. If I had to finish fast that's what I had to do. I just came to do my job. We train hard in the gym to make it easy in the ring.''

"I want Guillermo Rigondeaux. I'm not scared of him. I want my manager to make the fight so I can prove I'm the best."

MANUEL ROMAN

"I got caught with a right. He just caught me. What can I say? There's nothing else."

MICKEY BEY

"I'm No. 1 in the lightweight division. He was No. 1 and now it's me. I'm not surprised that I won, I'm just really happy. He was head-butting and holding the entire time. I won every round and I beat him with one hand (hurt his right). I told my team I wasn't going to slip and now I'm No. 1 in the division.''

MIGUEL VAZQUEZ

"It was a good fight and Mickey Bey was a dignified opponent. He fought strong but I anticipated he would fight that way. I don't have much to say. A win is a win, what can I say. I thought the fight was close. I thought I won."
