Mayweather: Everyone Always Trying to Cheat to Beat Me

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather (46-0, 26KOs) says he is tired of fighters always trying to "cheat to win." Mayweather claims Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31KOs) fought extremely dirty when they faced each other on May 3rd. Mayweather won a twelve round majority decision. A rematch is scheduled for September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather has focused on the gloves controversy of the first Maidana bout, claiming the Argentine boxer attempted to use gloves with no padding. The Everlast MX gloves were rejected, by Mayweather, following the weigh-in. He claims Maidana's trainer, Robert Garcia, instructed his boxer to use illegal tactics during the fight.

"Robert Garcia is one of best trainers in the world, but you don't give your fighter advice to go out and cheat to win or let us fight with our gloves with no padding in the gloves. Conduct yourself like a gentleman at the end of the day. Even though we're in a brutal sport, if you beat me earn it the hard way. I got to the top with hard work, dedication, prayers and belief, and a good team. If you're going to beat me, earn it the hard way - don't cheat to win. Even with the Ortiz fight. Everyone is always trying to cheat to beat me. If you're going to beat me - earn it. That's all I got to say," Mayweather said.
