Marcos Maidana: I Can Knock Floyd Mayweather Out!

By Elisinio Castillo

WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31KOs) is looking for another upset victory when he faces Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs) on May 3rd from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Last December Maidana had a very big upset win with a twelve round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Adrien Broner in San Antonio.

"I respect him very much as a boxer. He chose me. He must know that I earned this position, that I deserved the opportunity. I earned it with my last four fights. To beat him, it is necessary to fight with everything. Robert García, my trainer in the United States, has been a big help to me. In the last fight, he made corrections [with me]," Maidana said.

"I wanted to earn this fight to remain in the history of Argentine boxing. That's why I wanted this fight very much. It is a very big opportunity for me. I believe that with the type of punches that I throw, I can knock him out."

[QUOTE=VatoMulatto;14327586]Marcos got the power to KO anyone with one punch. Had it not been for his punching power this fight would've been completely useless. Floyd will box cirlcles around him but Marcos will be dangerous throughout the entire fight. [B]Everytime…
