The American public have never taken to the showboating arrogance of Floyd Mayweather Junior, so much so that they tend to cheer for his opponent... Such was the magnitude of his performance, the watching audience couldn't help but cheer Pretty Boy Floyd resoundingly.

In the build-up, much was made of this being a potential banana skin for a Mayweather who has had just one fight in the last two years following a 21 month retirement. You would even be forgiven for believing this if the first round was anything to go by.

Molesley exploded out of the traps to worry Money Mayweather, landing a sequence of blows that may not have landed sweetly, but seemed to have the five weight champion worried. All those worries were soon dispelled, however, as Mayweather launched his action plan.

In typical effervescent fashion, Mayweather bobbed and weaved around the ring with the speed and exuberance that has come to be expected of the pound for pound King contender. Molesley, buoyed by his exploits in the opening round, soon found himself on the back foot having fallen victim to a number of heavy right hands and, in all fairness, he looked far from the fighter that dismantled Oscar De La Hoya almost a decade ago.

Rounds four through eight seemed nothing more than a sparring exercise for Mayweather, who probed and pressed for the openings with enough speed and force to power a piston engine... Mayweather was driving through Molesley with little effort and little danger.

The fight was over by the tenth round, but the warrior that 38 year old Molesley is stood strong until long the finish and a unanimous points victory maintained Pretty Boy Floyd's perfect record. He took the time in his post fight interview to respond to questions aimed at the prospect of reviving a Pacquiao superfight, but Mayweather kept his resolve and maintained his stance that the fight will happen, given Manny's agreement to drug testing in the lead up to the fight.

Mind games or not, the truth of the matter is that both Pacquiao and Mayweather seemingly have noone left to fight but eachother; they've laid the competition in their wake and it's almost inevitable that the pair close their respective careers to determine once and for all just who is the undisputed pound for pound King.

After this performance, it's a brave man who will doubt Mayweather.
