Undefeated five-division champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. claimed a unanimous decision in a feisty encounter against Marcos Maidana to successfully defend three world titles and improve his record to 47-0 Saturday.Maidana, however, left convinced he had won the fight.By the eighth round, an increasingly frustrated Maidana appeared to bite Mayweather's arm when they were locked together in a clinch with the champion pulling away, jumping up and screaming at the Argentine.The referee halted the action so Mayweather could receive attention in his corner as he continued to yell at Maidana, who paid little heed to the fuss as he waited passively for the bout to restart.In the 10th round, Maidana was docked a point for sending Mayweather to the canvas with a forearm across the throat and tensions escalated in the 11th when the American landed a low blow and then ordered the Argentine to stop stalling and fight.
