Maidana: Mayweather Not as Difficult, Can't Avoid a Jab

There is only a month left until the rematch between pound for pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Marcos “Chino” Maidana takes place in Las Vegas, NV at the MGM Grand. Both fighters are deep in training camp but Maidana took a small break to talk to the media on Saturday afternoon in Carson, CA.

Maidana earned a second shot at Mayweather after putting on a great effort and giving Mayweather one of his more competitive fights in recent memory. The hard hitting Argentinean is going into this second fight very confident and once again reiterated that he doesn’t feel Floyd is as good as advertised.

“He’s not as difficult as he appears. I was able to put him against the ropes and hit him with a lot of punches. I had opportunities and I hit him but with the anxiousness I had in wanting to beat him, I made some mistakes and wasn’t able to take advantage of some of the little things he did” said Maidana.

Mayweather’s shoulder roll defense has baffled opponents for years as it’s difficult to land clean and you then have to worry about Floyd’s counter punching if you attack. Maidana however did use one punch in the fight that even Mayweather admitted surprised him; the jab.

“Well I was told by a fighter that had fought him before that Floyd can’t avoid the jab. So I remembered that in the fight and I started throwing the jab. And it’s true, he couldn’t avoid the jab” Maidana revealed.

While Maidana would not say which fighter told him that, this scribe along with others are positive it was Oscar De La Hoya. In fact, De La Hoya told BoxingScene before that he was told that the jab was the key to breaking down the Mayweather shoulder roll.
Maidana is poised and ready and much like all his other fights, he said he’ll be looking for a knockout.

“I always look for the knockout in my fights. If it comes great, if not, we can still win the fight”.

Believe Floyd is that good if you want to. What you said is true given his competition. Do you think that would work against Manny? Against GGG at 154lb? Huh? Do you? Because I don't. Do you think it would've worked against Martinez at 154lb when he was willing to drain himself to fight Floyd? Be...

Maybe Floyd is just a superior boxer to all of his opponents. Maybe he has superior boxing skills, better physical tools and has FAR better boxing intelligence. It's that simple!!! All this gets in their head stuff and he picks guys who are not mentally stable stuff in non sense. Thus far he's be...

And now Mayweather has about a month to practice defending the jab while in his shoulder roll defence. Way to give away the goods big mouth. SMH

[QUOTE=Divine Hammer]it's true. maidana landed a bunch of jabs. this is why floyd hates southpaws because of the straight left.[/QUOTE] You compared an orthodox jab to a straight left. Child stop.

[QUOTE=Beercules]:haha: that shows howin themuch Floyd slowed. Getting his pull counter, COUNTERED :rofl:[/QUOTE] Imo, thats where Maidana's jab should be going in the early rounds: chest, shoulders, stomach, etc...that should open up some holes in floyd's defense for some cleaner head sh...
