 DAILY BREAD TUESDAY EDITION:(9-16-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

Money May vs. Marcos the Maniac Recap & more....

First off what did you think of Floyd Mayweather's performance in his win vs. Marcos Maidana this weekend? He used a lot more movement. The legs don't look "gone" as some have been suggesting. Do think Money May is say 95% prime, or do you think there is more slippage? Second, how do you think Jermain Taylor will do in his upcoming bout with Sam Soliman? Am I crazy for giving him a real shot to win? I like Jermain against most at 160 if the opponent doesn't have the power to hurt him. I think even a past-it Taylor will be a tough out for Sam. Then again we really don't know how much left in the tank Taylor has.

RESULTS FROM MISSOURI
Doveed Linder @ ringside

Stephon Young W6 Kendrick Latchman... On Saturday night at Ameristar Casino in St. Charles, Missouri, St. Louis boxers showcased their skills on a card promoted by Steve Smith’s Rumble Time Promotions. In the main event, super bantamweight Stephon Young won all six rounds against Kendrick Latchman, an opponent who preferred clowning around opposed to fighting. Latchman had a jittery rhythm that was very distracting and difficult to watch, switching back and forth from a right-handed stance to southpaw. Throughout the six rounds, Latchman pawed with his jab, held, and made silly expressions. Young had a hard time adjusting to a style that you can’t train for, but he eventually found a way inside and banged Latchman to the head and the body. Despite his non-effort, Latchman treated himself to a back flip when the fight was over. Young is now 11-0-1 with 4 KOs, while Latchman falls to 0-2.

FLOYD MAYWEATHER POST-FIGHT QUOTES

Press Release: 
Floyd Mayweather, generally considered boxing's best pound-for-pound champion, 
 successfully defended his WBC and WBA welterweight and WBC junior middleweight championships with a unanimous 12-round decision victory in a rematch with Marcos Maidana (35-5, 31 KOs) on Saturday in front of 16,144 fans on Las Vegas. 
Mayweather said afterwards, 
“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.”
While the decision was clear, the fight was not without controversy.   Frustrated with Mayweather’s clinching, Maidana was accused of biting his opponent’s left hand in the eighth round, causing a break in the fight while referee Kenny Bayless inspected the champ’s gloves.  Replays were inconclusive, but Mayweather wasn't.
“He bit my fingers so my fingers were numb,” Mayweather said.  “After the 8th round my hand was numb and I really couldn’t use my left hand.”    

“Maybe he thinks I’m a dog, but I never bit him,” Maidana said.  “He was rubbing my eyes with his glove.  Maybe he had his glove in my mouth, but I don’t think I bit him.”    

After the fight, Showtime's Jim Gray asked Mayweather if he would like a fight with eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao.  
“I’m not ducking or dodging any opponent,’’ Mayweather said. “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.”

MAYWEATHER WINS EASY
By Scott Shaffer

Floyd Mayweather W12 Marcos Maidana... In Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather made all the necessary adjustments while Marcos Maidana had much less success than in their first fight, which added up to Mayweather's second victory over Maidana in 2014.  The second bout was far less competitive and far less interesting than the first, as Mayweather mostly content to throw jabs and counterpunches at Maidana from a safe distance. Mayweather retained two welterweight championships and a junior middleweight championship with an easy decision that was scored by 115-112 (twice) and 116-111 by the three judges. The fight was more one-sided than those scores would indicate. Boxingtalk scored it 117-110 Mayweather, now 47-0 over an 18 year pro career. Mayweather was extremely economical with his offense, throwing just 326 punches throughout the twelve rounds and outlanding Maidana 166 punches to 128. While Mayweather will certainly be criticized for an uninteresting fight, Maidana also deserves criticism for his unimaginative and one-dimensional fight plan that he remained faithful to when it was obviously failing him.
