Duran: Maidana Won It, Mayweather Will Run in Rematch

By Enyoline Barria, notifight.com

Panamanian boxing legend Roberto "Mano de Piedra" Duran gave his take on the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26 KOs) and Argentina's Marcos Rene "El Chino" Maidana (35-4, 31 KOs), and what he expects to happen in the rematch. Last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Mayweather had a much tougher time than expected and won a twelve round majority decision.
 
"Very Simple. If there is a rematch, Floyd will run from Maidana. He is just going to hold and run. He won't be able to stop Maidana and he knows Maidana will once again be looking for a war," Duran said.
 
"In Saturday's fight, Mayweather did not know what to do. Maidana had him in trouble. The most curious thing is that he calls himself the best in the world, but he didn't know how to decipher the Argentine. In the last fight with Broner, Maidana did very well and threw punches to the body, and that was what he needed to do with Floyd - but no - he just wanted to hit [Floyd] in the head. In addition, the Argentine does not know how to cut off the ring."

"For me 'El Chino' won it. Indeed, the fight should have ended in a draw, but they didn't want to damage the record of Floyd, so what happened happened."
