Mayweather: 'Disrespectful' of Garcia For 'Dirty' Advice
By Mike Coppinger
Floyd Mayweather was roughed up by Marcos Maidana the first time in a foul-filled bout.
He's hoping the second go-around will be a much cleaner fight.
"My health is more important than money," Mayweather said on a Wednesday media conference call. " I need to be healthy to perform. This isn't MMA, it's boxing."
Robert Garcia has advised Maidana numerous times to make it a "dirty fight" and a "street fight," remarks Mayweather takes much offense to.
"It's totally disrespectful for boxing to have a trainer tell a guy to be dirty," Mayweather said angrily.
"Money" has a point. Garcia shouldn't state that, at least publicly, but Floyd also needs to look in the mirror. He's a dirty fighter himself, and loves to throw elbows and stick that forearm in the necks of his opponents.
Like it or not, Maidana is going to try to win by any means necessary.

[QUOTE=ChequeHook;14911981]Yes. It is easy for fight fans to appreciation Mayweather's veteran tactics. But it is also easy to appreciate Maidana's awareness of Floyd's dirty tricks and Maidana's attitude to be even dirtier and be open and obvious about it. [B]I…Comment by ReIoaded on 09-04-2014
[QUOTE=IMDAZED;14911932]Yeah it is but...no one is saying it isn't. What I'm saying is I appreciate that subtle art that veterans practice of knowing when to do things (nothing seriously egregious obviously) and get away with it. To me, that's a…Comment by IMDAZED on 09-04-2014
[QUOTE=ChequeHook;14911915]OK. Dirty tactics in the ring. Floyd is good at those and his subtlety in their application does take tremendous skill. If he were an MMA fighter and pulled off his dirty tricks he would have the ultimate highlight reel…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (116)
