Maidana: I Learned Floyd Mayweather is Not That Great

By Edward Chaykovsky

Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31KOs) was expecting a lot more when he faced WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs) in May. Based on Mayweather's pound-for-pound reputation, Maidana thought he was in for a much tougher fight. Mayweather still won more than enough rounds for a twelve round majority decision.

“In my first fight against Floyd, I learned that he’s not that great, he’s not that superhuman boxer everybody talks about. If I wouldn’t have been so anxious looking for the knockout, I would have beat him," Maidana said.

A rematch is set for September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This time around, Maidana predicts Mayweather will use his legs, use the ring and stay away from exchanging punches.

“I think Floyd is going to run around inside the ring. In our first fight, he said he was going to stand up and fight and he didn’t. So, it wouldn’t surprise me if this time around he does the same thing," Maidana said.
