LAS VEGAS (AP) — Marcos Maidana did everything but beat Floyd Mayweather Jr., taking him 12 tough rounds before losing a majority decision.

Mayweather remained unbeaten Saturday night, but not by much. Maidana swarmed all over him from the opening bell and gave him perhaps his toughest fight in a 16-year professional career.

In the end, though, Mayweather got the win — just as he did in his previous 45 fights. He retained his welterweight titles, winning the fight on two scorecards while a third judge had it even.
