WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31KOs) issued a minor warning to the pound-for-pound king. Maidana was approached with a question regarding whether or not he was capable of beating WBC champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs). Maidana is one the fighters being considered for Mayweather's return on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"Mayweather is not invincible," Maidana said in a short statement to Ole.

Last month, Maidana pulled off one of the biggest upset victories of the year when he dropped previously undefeated Adrien Broner two times and won a dominating twelve round unanimous decision to win the WBA's title at 147. Now Maidana wants Broner's close friend, Mayweather.

When Maidana made his welterweight debut in February 2012, he took a one-sided pounding from Devon Alexander. The loss made him rethink his entire career. Then he hired Oxnard trainer Robert Garcia and won his last four fights.

"Devon Alexander is a good fighter and he had a very good win. At that moment I thought - 'this division is not for me., and this level is very difficult.' And then [adviser] Sebastian Contursi called me and told me he had a coach with whom I would do very well with. So it was in May 2012 that I started working with Robert Garcia. I changed some things, like my defense, and I saw good things happening. I desire to fight again returned," Maidana told Ole.

"When I lost to Alexander, I was considering whether or not I should be boxing. At that time, things were not going well in my career and I lost that fight badly, he beat me up. I did not know what to do and I was unsure of the future. But with Robert I started to win again and I improved my boxing. And now I'm the world champion of the division that I hesitated to continue in. Well I beat Broner, who was the favorite, the guy favored by television network and, they said he was Mayweather's successor. This fight was very important to me. And I received the awards that recognized the effort that I made to achieve this."

[QUOTE=KermitTheKiller]idc what anyone says I would rather see this fight than Khan. People want to compare Maidana to Guererro and those people are obviously new to boxing. Guerrero didn't even have a punchers chance. If the options are Khan or Maidana (which is sad) than Maidana all the w...

[QUOTE=Muscles72]Maidana is right mayweather is not invincible but he can't beat him either[/QUOTE] I wouldn't say can't beat him, though it is unlikely. Unlike a Bradley or Malignaggi he does have the power. He's also aggressive, dogged, and a little awkward. If he re-rediscovers his jab (tha...

Maidana is right mayweather is not invincible but he can't beat him either only way mayweather loses anytime soon is if he A. Moves to 160 or B. Fights too much longer.
