Maidana: I Have No Choice, I Have To KO Mayweather!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31KOs) has only one plan in place for September 13th - to knock Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs) out for the WBC/WBA welterweight titles. He doesn't want to take any chances with allowing the fight to reach the scorecards.

The rematch takes place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the site where their first meeting took place. Mayweather had tough time figuring out Maidana's style and won a twelve round majority decision. There was a lot of pre-fight controversy as well, with Maidana complaining that he wasn't allowed to use his favorite Everlast MX gloves.

“I’m going to have to go for the knockout this time, I have no choice.  Floyd’s defense is very good and at times it is hard to hit him.  That’s why I want to knock him out. First, I’m going to give him a beating and then I’m going to knock him out.  It’s going to be hard to get a decision because he connects well and knows how to score points," Maidana said.
