Maidana, Garcia See No Age Decline in Mayweather

By Edward Chaykovsky

Based on the in-ring performance of the first fight, Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31KOs) saw no physical decline in Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs). Mayweather had a lot more trouble with Maidana than many people had expected. Some people felt Mayweather's issues were attributed to age. Maidana says Mayweather is a very physically fit fighter and was able to keep a good pace for the entire twelve rounds.

"I don't think age has anything to do with it. I don't think it does because in the first fight, yeah, he could've fought with me a little bit, but then he started boxing and moving at times. So I don't think age has anything to do with it. He's a good athlete. He's in shape. I think that it was his decision to stand and fight with me. This second fight I hope he decides to stand and fight with me, to fight like a man. I hope he doesn't start running or trying to move away," Maidana said.

Maidana's trainer, Robert Garcia, was on the outside looking in and saw no decline.

"I agree with what Chino just said. Mayweather is going to be 38, but he's taken care of his body. He's an athlete. He's a natural, so I don't think age is a factor in this fight. But like Chino said, we just hope that he wants to please the crowd like he said he tried to do it the first fight, well hopefully this time he does it even better," Garcia said.

The rematch takes place on September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather is well in decline. Still a great fighter, but his speed and movement have clearly declined. Current Mayweather has faded noticeably from the guy who schooled Marquez.
