Maidana: I'm Dirty? Mayweather is The King of Elbows

By Edward Chaykovsky

Argentine puncher Marcos Maidana has reacted to the statements by Floyd Mayweather Jr., who accused Maidana of being a very dirty fighter. When they fought on May 3rd, Mayweather says Maidana used his head and threw many illegal punches to the back of the head and below the belt. Mayweather won a twelve round majority decision and walked away with the WBC/WBA welterweight titles.

Maidana denies being a dirty fighter and claims Mayweather is the boxer who uses questionable tactics in the ring. On September 13th, they will collide for a second time at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“Without a doubt we are going to prove who won the first fight with this fight; with this rematch. I fight dirty?  He’s the king of the elbows.  The rematch is a big deal in Argentina. The entire country watched the first fight.  There’s going to be no exceptions in this one. Everybody is going to watch," Maidana said.

“I keep getting better in each fight, with defense, head movement.  What Robert has done is a fine tune. In the first Mayweather fight, I was a little too anxious, and that’s one of the things that Robert helped me fix.”

[QUOTE=IMDAZED;14761835]No he's definitely been reprimanded many times since then. But Mayweather is sneaky dirty and that's why he gets away with it; he rarely does it for the ref to see. Look at the shoulder bump he got from Canelo…

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;14761748]I don't think he is. I've seen refs call it but never punish him. He just usually gets favourable treatment because of who he is. I think the last time he actually got reprimanded was the first JLC…

[QUOTE=Red Cyclone;14761316]Maidana is a clean fighter, I hope the referee wont let Mayweather cheat in the rematch like he did in the first fight. :boxing::boxing::boxing:[/QUOTE] No way: Maidana is the dirtiest fighter I've ever seen. ... And with his MX…

[QUOTE=IMDAZED;14761700]Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. Usually Floyd's pretty good at hiding it from the refs although not necessarily the cameras. But ok.[/QUOTE] I don't think he is. I've seen refs call it but never punish him. He just usually…
