Mayweather got bitten? Consider fans skeptical about that
On his way to a unanimous 12-round decision over Marcos Maidana on Saturday night, Floyd Mayweather yelled out that Maidana had bitten him during a clinch in the eighth round.
Maidana denied it after the bout, in which Mayweather retained his welterweight and super welterweight titles.
And the Twitter reaction was with Maidana. Most tweets expressed skepticism along these lines:
Mayweather how he going to bite you with a mouthpiece in?

Did he bite him? With a mouth piece and through your glove. Booo Mayweather

That’s not to say anyone seemed particularly impressed with Maidana.
Maidana's bite was the most damage he caused on Mayweather all fight

I was hoping Maidana would give Mayweather his best fight…instead he gave Mayweather his best BITE!

In fact, Mayweather still showed himself to be formidable, bite or not.
Tip for future opponents: bite BOTH of Mayweather's hands. Then you win because he can't punch.
