Mayweather easy winner over Marquez in ring return

Floyd Mayweather’s return to boxing Saturday was a success both inside the ring and at the box office, as his decisive win over Juan Manuel Marquez drew more than 1 million pay-per-view buys, according to HBO PPV.   The fight, in which the Mayweather — who had retired from the sport in 2007 — used his speed and size advantage to pound out a unanimous decision over Marquez, is the first PPV boxing event to top the 1 million buy mark since the Oscar De La Hoya-Manny Pacquiao fight, which drew 1.25 million buys in December 2008.
