Floyd Mayweather: Marcos Maidana Will Be No Pushover

By Keith Idec

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is an 11-1 favorite over Marcos Maidana.

Those odds are much wider than when he encountered Canelo Alvarez, whom Mayweather dominated Sept. 17 in Las Vegas. The 37-year-old Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs) still is approaching their May 3 pay-per-view showdown in Las Vegas with the same trademark professionalism that has helped the undefeated five-division champion become the best boxer in the world.

Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs) isnt considered a skilled technician, but Mayweather watched Maidana manhandle Adrien Broner four months ago in San Antonio and he isnt is about to let overconfidence cost him his unblemished record.

Adrien Broners a boxer and he roughed Adrien Broner up and he got the victory, Mayweather said. We cant say what this guy, what he can or he cant do. We cannot overlook this guy. I cant just say, Oh, hes just going to be an easy fight, because its not going to be an easy fight for me. I dont think so. So what Ive got to do is Ive got to make sure that Im at my best. So Ive got to go out there and take my time, keep my composure and be me. Everybody thinks hes just going to be a pushover, but I dont think so. So thats why Im training hard and Im pushing myself to the limit every day.

Maidana will bring it and he may even hurt/drop Floyd because of his awkward punching style, power and super aggressiveness. I think Floyd will manage to outpoint Maidana though but the early rounds will be tough for Floyd.

comment by ADP02, on 04-28-2014
[QUOTE=paulf]Floyd usually waits until after he dominates a fighter to start saying that the opponent is really good. Ya know, so it will make him look better. The fact that he and Ellerbe are both giving Maidana props before the fight is a pretty good indication that they know Maidana doesnt ...

[QUOTE=keyz3r0]People don't WASTE YOUR MONEY.... Mayweather is bigger than Broner, Faster than Broner, smarter than Broner, has a longer reach and Maidana will never touch Mayweather at all... as for Khan on a PPV card???
