Floyd Mayweather was given a workout by Marcos Maidana before retaining his unbeaten record on points and taking the WBA welterweight title. Amir Khan earlier impressed in his welterweight debut, flooring  Luis Collazo three times.

Giroud gives fans happy send-off

Opinion: Sam Wallace

Former England midfielder Joe Cole has made some bad decisions about the clubs he has joined since Chelsea but there must be a manager somewhere with the imagination to find a place for him.
