Alright everyone, breathe!

"The One" has come and gone.

Floyd Mayweather turned in another virtuoso performance—in a career full of them—tonight defeating Saul "Canelo" Alvarez by majority-decision in a fight that was nowhere near as close as the official scorecards would have you believe.

The fighters have just wrapped up the post-fight presser, and were effusive in their praise of one another. 

Mayweather commended Canelo for his heart and determination, and declared that one day he will take the torch as the face of boxing.

For his part, Canelo was visibly disappointed, but praised Mayweather for his speed and ability to blunt his offensive attack. 

Mayweather, while stopping short of naming potential opponents, expressed a desire to return to the ring again next May. 

Perhaps the big question for that fight won't be who is "The One," but "Who's Next?"
