Mayweather won a narrow points decision but the Mexican was able to get close enough and often enough to make some people doubt the final verdict.
In a rematch eight months later Mayweather adjusted and won clearly.
Mayweather fought and won 17 times in 24 months before winning his first world title at super-featherweight, and back then there was talk of a fight against Sheffield's fallen idol Naseem Hamed but instead there was a rapid rise through the weight divisions.It should also be pointed out that in addition to the prison sentence the Nevada State Athletic Commission banned Roger at the time from working in Floyd Jnr's corner.The boxing ban had nothing to do with the grandma's broken teeth but related to a fight in April 2006 when Roger entered the ring in round 10 intent on knocking out Zab Judah, who had just hit Floyd Jnr low.His fight with Hatton is only happening because Hatton knocked out Castillo in June.There was a big fight in 2005 against a worn-out but still marketable Arturo Gatti for the WBC's light-welterweight title and the following year the controversial International Boxing Federation welterweight fight against Judah. In May of this year Mayweather beat De La Hoya in a fight that shattered all financial records.
