Maidana: I Need To Be More Accurate With Mayweather
By Miguel Angel Cebreros, notifight.com
Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31KOs) is promising to be more calm when he faces WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs) in a rematch on September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Maidana, trained by Robert Garcia in Oxnard, says he was too focused on landing a knockout punch on Mayweather in their first fight and this time around he plans to throw his combinations less recklessly. After twelve rounds, Maidana lost a majority decision.
This time he doesn't want to waste too many punches. He wants every punch to count.
"I was very anxious to go out and knock him out. I believe if I stay calm, use the proper distance....everything will be fine [in the rematch]. That, and throwing more accurate punches. Right now I'm very happy, I'm training very well, doing good sparring and I'm very focused," Maidana said. "We've doing a little bit of everything in the gym, we are practicing a lot. I have a lot of confidence in myself, in my team. We all have so much to gain and little to lose."

the more reckless the better, wtf maidana, he needs to stay reckless for the whole 12 rounds, last time his recklessness died off in last half of fight and he got picked apartComment by Muscles72 on 08-25-2014
Honestly I think maidana fought a good fight the first time around the only fighters who have come close to beating Floyd or even had some type of chance is pressuring him with a lot of punches although I doubt…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (37)
