We bet Mike Tyson will be interested in this story.
During Saturday’s showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana (where the champion retained his titles by securing a victory by decision), the undefeated champion now claims that his opponent bit him in the eighth round.
“We were tangled up in the center of the ring and the referee was breaking us, and he bit my left hand,” said Mayweather.
“After the eighth round, my hand was numb. I really couldn’t use my left hand. But I got the victory the best way I know how.”
Immediate replays of the incident were inconclusive, although Maidana insisted that he did not bite the champion.
Mayweather made headlines for saying that he was open to fighting Manny Pacquaio after his win.
