Maidana Rips Mayweather: He is a Crybaby, A Whiner!

By Elisinio Castillo,

Marcos Maidana returned to Argentina and got a hero's welcome from the fans and local media. Last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, "El Chino" Maidana (35-4, 31KOs) dropped a twelve round majority decision to Floyd Mayweather (46-0, 26 KOs) in a welterweight unification. Some called it the toughest fight of Mayweather's career in several years.

In an impromptu press conference at a chaotic international airport in the locality of Ezeiza, Maidana discussed the fight and demanded a rematch in September.

"He was surprised when I attacked. He didn't know what to do. I'm ready to win. All of the other opponents who faced him were intimidated by him. I did what none of his opponents did before, and it cost him. It was a very close fight. But I was the one who made the fight, so for me I won. A draw might not have been bad. Still, it was close. Mayweather is very good, but I proved I'm also good," Maidana said.

"I'm happy to have made a good fight against the pound for pound world champion, but he complicated matters by not allowing me to use my gloves in the fight, even though they were already approved [by the Nevada State Athletic Commission]... All the time he was trying to find excuses. He is a baby, a whiner ... I for one want a rematch already, but I have no clear indication of what will happen. Now I know him and that makes it easier for me."
"He's hard to hit. I tried to hit the area of the right eye where the cut was and I could not. That whole issue with the gloves and all of the complaining bothered me so much. He is a crying baby. I'm ready for September. I want revenge."

[QUOTE=peplz;14523223]The guy complaining about not being able to wear his gloves is accusing someone of being a cry baby. So your gloves are the reason you didn't win? Really? That sounds like an excuse to me. If he needs gloves…

[QUOTE=shade darkar;14544133]why are you so bothered about it? like you say, just ignore it[/QUOTE] Pointing it out doesn't equate to being bothered by it. I would think any reasonable fan would cringe that a thread about floyd's ex's abortion or…

[QUOTE=JDD1;14544130]You are smart enough to know there is a huge segment of NSB that logs on simply to hate on anything and everything floyd does. It makes it seem more than it really is. All you can hope is reasonable…
