LAS VEGAS, Nev. Jordan Clarkson Jersey . - It might have been the toughest $32 million Floyd Mayweather Jr. ever made. Marcos Maidana did everything Saturday night but beat Mayweather, taking him 12 tough rounds before losing a majority decision. Mayweather remained unbeaten, 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. Cut over his eye and temporarily blinded by a head butt in the fourth round, Mayweather had to rally in the last half of the fight to avoid losing for the first time since he was beaten on a controversial decision in the 1996 Olympics. In the end, though, Mayweather got the win — just as he did in his previous 45 fights in a decision that was met with disbelief by Maidana and booed heavily by the crowd. He retained his welterweight title by winning 117-111 on one scorecard and 116-112 on another. A third judge had it even at 114-114. The Associated Press scored it for Mayweather 115-113. Maidana threw far more punches, but Mayweather was more accurate with his as the two battled into the late rounds with the fight still very much in doubt. Cheered on by a large contingent of Argentine fans, Maidana took the fight to Mayweather, who was cut by the right eye in the fourth round by an accidental head butt. "It was a tough, competitive fight," Mayweather said. "I normally like to go out there and box and move. But he put pressure on me. I wanted to give the fans what they wanted to see so I stood and fought him. Maidana raised his arms in victory when the final bell sounded, and Mayweather watched pensively from his corner as the scorecards were added up before he was declared the winner. "I think I won the fight," Maidana said. "He didnt fight like a man." Punch stats by Compubox showed Mayweather landing 230 of 426 punches to 221 of 858 for Maidana. It was the most punches landed by any fighter against Mayweather in 38 fights where punch stats were compiled. Maidana had a big lead in the early rounds through his constant aggression. But Mayweather won five of the last seven rounds on two scorecards and six of seven on a third to pull out the win by a narrow margin. "I couldnt see for two rounds after the head butt," Mayweather said. "After I could see again it didnt both me. Thats what champions do, they survive and adjust." Maidana had said before the fight he was going to treat Mayweather like any other fighter and go right after him. He did just that, bringing the sellout crowd at the MGM Grand hotel to its feet as he landed some big overhand right hands to the top of Mayweathers head. "He never hurt me with a punch," Maidana said. "He wasnt that tough, I thought I won." Maidana complained about being forced to fight with gloves he didnt want to use when the two camps engaged in a standoff over gloves at the rules meeting a day earlier. "If I would have had my gloves I would have knocked him out," Maidana said. "They took away my advantage." Mayweather, who earned $32 million for the fight, was a 6-1 favourite coming to remain unbeaten. He had picked Maidana as an opponent because Maidana beat Adrien Broner in an upset in December, but he almost made the wrong pick. Mayweather seemed confused early and unable to adapt to the wild punches thrown by Maidana. It wasnt until the middle rounds that he got into more of a rhythm, hitting Maidana with hooks to the body and right punches to the head. Still, the fight was in doubt late as Maidana wouldnt quit coming forward. With the crowd on its feet in the final round he tried to land big punches, but Mayweather was able to escape most of them. Maidana, who was cheered by the crowd as he left the ring, said he wanted a rematch, and both promoter Richard Schaefer and Mayweather said he just might get one after nearly pulling off one of the biggest upsets in recent years. "If the fans want to see it again, lets do it again," Mayweather said. Brad Daugherty Jersey .

The Philadelphia Eagles acquired running back Darren Sproles from the New Orleans Saints for a fifth-round draft pick on Tuesday.GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A miscommunication between Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald left the ball right in Terence Newmans hands. And the Cincinnati cornerback made the most of it. Newman returned the interception 54 yards for the early score and the Bengals went on to beat the Arizona Cardinals 19-13 on Sunday night. "He pretty much threw it right to me," Newman said. "It wasnt like I did anything, just an errant throw on his part. Fitzgerald blamed himself. "I didnt break across the corners face and Ive got to do that," he said, adding that he cant let the quarterback "hang out to dry." But it will look like Palmers mistake. "Thats what it is in the quarterbacks world," Arizona coach Bruce Arians said. It was that kind of night for the Arizona offence against a Bengals defence that ranked second in the NFL last season. "We had a number of things that were just off," Palmer said, "from overthrows to missed opportunities, some funky things that happened on a couple of routes and some drops." Mike Nugent added field goals of 48 and 36 yards for Cincinnati (1-2). Jay Feely, competing with rookie Chandler Catanzaro for the Cardinals kicking job, made a 24-yarder, but missed from 48 yards. Catanzaro made a 23-yard attempt. The Cardinals (1-2) got their lone touchdown on a 30-yard pass from backup Drew Stanton to rookie John Brown, who stretched out for a diving grab in the end zone with 1:29 left in the third quarter, tying it at 13-13. Cincinnati backup Quinn Sharp kicked field goals of 34 and 51 yards after that for the deciding margin. "We kind of gave it to a pretty good football team," Arians said, lamenting the missed opportunities, "and you just cant do that, especially at home." The Bengals Andy Dalton completed 13 of 21 passes for 183 yards. Palmer was 7 of 19 for 92 yards. Larry Fitzgerald caught five of Palmers throws for 71 yards. Both teams played their starters the entire first half. Palmer was facing the team he was with for the first eight years of his NFL career before an acrimonious split sent him to Oakland. Dalton replaced Palmer as a rookie in 2011. Cornerback Leon Hall said "it means something to me, for emootional reasons I guess" to hold Palmer, his former teammate, without a touchdown. George Hill Cavaliers Jersey. . "But really," Hall said, "Id feel almost the same way regardless who we were playing. This was what they call a rehearsal game. ... This builds some momentum for (the opener against) Baltimore." Bengals owner Mike Brown was taken to a Phoenix hospital before the game for what was termed a "minor" health problem. The team said he was to return to Cincinnati and did not attend the game. "I guess the good thing is everyone acted very quickly to get things headed in the right direction very fast," Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said, adding that Brown would have preferred to have kept the incident quiet. "Were happy that, hopefully, everything is going in the right direction and hopefully hell get back with us very quickly." Cincinnati inside linebacker Vontaze Burfict left the game in the first quarter with a hamstring injury. On the Cardinals second possession, it was third-and-7 from the Arizona 40 when Palmer fired a pass intended for Fitzgerald. But the errant throw went right to Newman, who evaded a couple of early would-be tacklers and outran everyone else to the end zone. The Arizona starters biggest offensive threat came on their first possession of the second quarter. The defence forced the Bengals to punt from their 6-yard line, giving the Cardinals good field position at the Cincinnati 41. Statistically, at least, the Bengals starters had the advantage, outgaining Arizona 198-141 in the first half. "On defence, we had some negative plays," Lewis said, but overall the effort -- and of course the point total -- was what you are looking for." NOTES: Cincinnati DT Geno Atkins played two series, his first game action since tearing an ACL and missing the last seven games a year ago. ... Bengals rookie guard Trey Hopkins was carted off the field in the fourth quarter with a right shin injury. Moments later wide receiver James Wright left via cart with a concussion. Guard T.J. Johnson became the third Bengal carted off the field in the fourth quarter. ... Arizona was without starting inside linebacker Kevin Minter (pectoral muscle) and guard Jonathan Cooper (toe).
