Garcia Wants Maidana Lighter, Quicker For Rematch

By Mark Whicker

If Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31KOs) gets another crack at Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs) on Sept. 13, his trainer already has a revised game plan.

"This time I'm going to have him come in a little lighter," Robert Garcia said Tuesday.. "We wanted him bigger for the first fight because we wanted to match Mayweather's size and power.

"But after the fight Marcos said Mayweather wasn't that powerful, really couldn't hurt him. So we need to be quicker and move better and I think we will."

Maidana gave Mayweather his most difficult fight in years on May 3 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, losing a twelve round majority decision but pressing Mayweather from the beginning.

Mark Whicker has been a sports columnist in Southern California for 27 years.

[QUOTE=ssc73;14817072]That's something i guarantee they worked on in the gym. The Mayweather pull-counter. That's the punch Maidana was able to disrupt once or twice. And it's one of Floyd's favorite. I think he should work on the up-jab like Cotto…

[QUOTE=KnickTillDeaTh;14741421]That video actually shows his speed and timing, Mayweather quickly evades the first punch and leans in to counter, Maidana is leaning to the left while throwing a right so he catches Mayweather in the chest, and Mayweather's counter misses.…
