Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31KOs) is not looking for a fight that goes to the scorecards. The Argentine fighter felt robbed of a decision win back in May, when Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs) walked away with a twelve round majority decision victory and the WBA/WBC welterweight titles.
A rematch is set for September 13th, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and this time Maidana is focused on putting Mayweather on his back.
“Personally, I found it much easier to face up against Floyd this time. When we first fought, I thought I wasn’t going to be able to see him, but I found him in the ring many times," Maidana said.
“I always come out looking for the knockout, but I like the way I fought in the first fight. Maybe the biggest adjustment for me going into this next fight is to keep more of a distance between the two of us. But there is no doubt that I am coming out looking for the win and getting that knockout.
