Maidana: Mayweather-Khan Would Have Been Boring
By Edward Chaykovsky
According to WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana, the fans should be happy that Floyd Mayweather Jr. took a pass on fighting Amir Khan on May 3rd. Maidana and Khan were both in the running to face Mayweather on the May date. After weeks of suspense, Mayweather selected Maidana.
Khan was furious with Mayweather's decision. And the British star was quick to point out that he holds a 2010 decision win over Maidana.
Maidana views Mayweather-Khan as a boring clash of styles. While Maidana plans to go after Mayweather from the opening bell, he says Khan would try to outbox the unbeaten WBC champion.
"My fight [with Khan] was one of the biggest fights of my career. I think Khan vs. Mayweather would be a very boring fight. They are both boxers and neither of them are going to attack, so that's why I think it would be boring," Maidana said.
The last time Maidana faced a technical boxer, it was Devon Alexander in 2011 and the Argentine was dominated in the match. Maidana has made a lot of changes since then, introducing the hire of trainer Robert Garcia and conditioning coach Alex Ariza.
"I lost to him. He beat me, but after that there were a lot of changes. I changed trainers, mentally I prepare myself better and now we are where we're at," Maidana said.
