Marcos Maidana Focused on Second Half Power, Energy

Marcos "Chino" Maidana is planning to beat the scales and become aerated, to defeat pound for pound proud supremo Floyd Mayweather in chapter two of their welterweight fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 13th.
 
Marcos says the strategy this time around is to be lighter and in even better condition, in order to maintain the blistering all out attack pace for every single second of the fight.
 
To achieve this plan, Maidana is working hard with some races and also some special exercises from his conditioning coach, Raul Robles. He's using an oxygen mask to strictly regulate his breathing.

"We have already had two weeks of working like this. We're doing absolutely everything we need to achieve peak excellence for this bout. We were working with medicine balls, rubber bands and the mask that dispenses oxygen. We are teaching him how to evenly manage his breathing," explained Raul .

"The issue of breathing is a crucial core aim of team Maidana, because in the second part of his first fight against Mayweather, his physical condition somewhat slowed down and he's determined to correct this. I watched the first six rounds of Maidana and he was very strong. But from round seven his performance began lowering. He didn't   have such power as he'd shown up to that point. So we are now working to possess and maintain twelve rounds of intense activity."

Floyd is going to pick him apart with movement. Floyd wins this 10-2 at the worst!

[QUOTE=IMDAZED;14826235]He won't sacrifice power, in fact I think it is a wise move. His punches will come faster and have more sting. And he might be able to land more. I like the idea of coming in lighter and I…
