The third round saw Mayweather dominate once again, landing a series of powerful punches that seemed to stun Chalmers. Chalmers attempted to fight back, but Mayweather’s precision and speed proved too much for him.
In the fourth and final round, Chalmers came out swinging, but Mayweather was able to evade most of his attacks and continue landing punches of his own. Chalmers showed heart and determination, but it was clear that Mayweather was the superior boxer.
The judges ultimately scored the match in Mayweather’s favor, with all three judges giving him a unanimous decision victory.
