Danny Garcia: Maidana is Tailor-Made For Mayweather

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia feels the rugged style of Marcos Maidana is tailor-made for Floyd Mayweather Jr. The two welterweight champions will collide in a unification encounter on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I think it's a good fight. Maidana is hungry. Every time you fight a hungry fighter it's a dangerous fight, but I think Maidana is tailor-made for Floyd Mayweather. Floyd has fought people who have fought like that before. Floyd is still young, with fresh legs, good vision and he will outbox him," Garcia told BoxingScene.com.

Maidana is coming off his signature win, a December twelve round decision over previously undefeated Adrien Broner. While many have compared Broner to Mayweather, Garcia says the two boxers are not in the same league in terms of experience and ability.

"Broner fights with that defense, but he doesn't have the defense and lateral movement. Floyd has good defense and good lateral movement. You can't really compare them because Broner is coming up and Floyd is an established veteran and superstar. Floyd is going to make him miss and outbox him for twelve rounds. It won't be easy. It's going to be a good fight, but I expect Floyd to win by unanimous decision," Garcia said.

[QUOTE=Keitha313;14280956]Maidana goes from being absolutely schooled by Devon Alexander who is a powder puff puncher who's power equates to the same level of fluffiness of Paulie Malinaggi's yet now he is fighting Fraud Cherrypickweather? Go figure.....[/QUOTE] Would have been better…

[QUOTE=Ray*;14280761]Of course he is tailor made for him, this is why I didn't want to see this fight. I have seen this fight many many times with Mayweather and it has become boring from a strict watching point of view.…

Whoever pays to see this piece of garbage fight is an absolute moron! How do you expect to get the fights that you want to see when you constantly fund this mouthy moron and don't stand up for your value…

[QUOTE=Intelligent;14279178]So Floyd fights the champion at welter weight and it is a "cherry pick"? Yeah that makes a lot of sense. Only Floyd who is 37 would get criticized for fighting a champion. Notice how nobody says Floyd is "Old"…

[QUOTE=GRUSTLER;14280851]Manny Pacquiao ain't no threat to Mayweather and never has been. Dude got laid out by a 40 year old counter puncher he could not figure out over 12 years and 4 fights. Arum made his fans believers.[/QUOTE] Stop fooling…
