Maidana: I Didn't Get $1.5 Million To Wear Floyd's Gloves

By Edward Chaykovsky

Marcos Maidana has rejected reports that Floyd Mayweather Jr. paid him $1.5 million dollars to use a different pair of gloves for their May fight, which Mayweather won with a twelve round majority decision.

Following the official weigh-in, Mayweather rejected Maidana's selection of the Everlast MX gloves. According to Mayweather, the gloves had little to no padding around the knuckle area. After Maidana selected a different pair of Everlast MX gloves, and they were approved by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Mayweather still rejected them. After a long standoff, Maidana was forced to cave and selected a different style of Everlast gloves.

Maidana says Mayweather refused to fight until a different pair of gloves were selected. They have a scheduled rematch on September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“There were rumors that I got paid to use Floyd’s gloves, but that’s not true. I had to accept his gloves because otherwise there was not going to be a fight. He basically called off the fight if I didn’t use his gloves, so I had to, I had no choice. Unlike him, I had come to fight, not to whine," Maidana said.

I'm beginning to believed that it was Robert Garcia who received the $1.5 mil for himself! Remember Ellerbe was on his gym surprising everyone why she was there? And this weeks Glovegate charade? Hummmm? [IMG]https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSvpts-tcgp5oqDK8LTESwEee1KFykWr6zQBMX8pABbRonHh9eJ[/IMG]

[QUOTE=vinny2006;14778574]You know what is said is these uneducated 20 or 30 year old fans with no knowledge about boxing honestly believe Floyd Jr. is great. Maybe about 10 years ago. No great boxer cries about gloves, cries about taking drug…
