Floyd Mayweather Jr. next fight: Sergio Martinez predicting upset by Marcos Maidana?

No Comments

“Well it’s a very tough fight for Mayweather who is great beyond his years, but I’m surprised he took such a tough matchup because Maidana is a machine, he won’t stop coming and I think he can get the win for Argentina,” Martinez said.

Part of Martinez’s speculation may stem from Maidana’s dominance of Adrien Broner, who prior to his loss in December had been billed as a Mayweather clone. Broner’s relative inexperience on the big stage became evident very quickly though, as his shoulder roll defense was no match for Maidana’s relentlessness and power.

“hen he fought Canelo — and I think Canelo is an awesome fighter too, I think Canelo is better than Maidana, tough wise and skill wise, and Floyd played around with him. I’m just gonna imagine what he’s gonna do with Maidana,” Wilder told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

Maidana V Mayweather: Assessing Maidana’s chances

No Comments

Straight to the point, it’s obvious that WBA welterweight champions Marcos Maidana (35, 31 KO’s) is a massive underdog going into the biggest fight of his life against pound for pound King Floyd Mayweather Jr (45-0, 26 KO’s) on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mayweather has superior hand speed, footwork, accuracy, defense, height and reach. The only attribute Maidana can and will rely on is his superior power, but how far will power take him?

aidana can be and has been out-boxed in the past by Devon Alexander the former IBF welterweight champion. He also has losses to Amir Khan and Andriy Kotelnik. However, both those fights were closely contested that saw Marcos having some significant success. He very nearly knocked Khan out in the 10th round in an action packed fight which saw Khan edge out a victory. Some argue that Maidana should have been awarded the victory against Kotelnik, although I personally saw that as a close fight that could have gone either way. In retrospect to these losses, it can really be argued that Maidana has only truly been out-boxed by Alexander, a much underrated fighter himself. So, what can we gather from an analysis of Maidana’s previous loses in comparison to Mayweather?

The fight will be a unification bout that will pit Mayweather’s WBC welterweight belt against Maidana’s WBA title. The match, which was formally announced by Golden Boy Promotions and Mayweather Promotions, will be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The announcement of the unified bout automatically disregards any talks about a fight between Mayweather and Amir Khan for this year.
