Mayweather Eyes KO: Maidana Can't Fight Any Better

By Miguel Rivera

Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs) appears confident that Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31KOs) is not capable of fighting any better than he did in their previous fight on May 3rd. Mayweather will defend his WBC/WBA welterweight titles against Maidana in a rematch on September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Their fight bout was won by Mayweather with a twelve round majority decision.

Mayweather gives praise to Maidana's coach, Robert Garcia, but also says the former champion won't be able to make Maidana any better in their return fight.

"Robert Garcia is one of the best coaches in the world. [Maidana] can go with the best coach, but I'm the best fighter. I don't think [Maidana] can fight any better," Mayweather said.

And while Maidana has promised to win the fight by knockout, Mayweather is planning for a knockout victory of his own.

"Of course I want the knockout. What happens is that I fight to win. If the opportunity for a knockout is there, then I'll take it. This is like a game of chess, every move I make is calculated," Mayweather said.

[QUOTE=rongizzle;14784222]Floyd doesn't get knockout because he's been fighting people that are 20 pounds heavier than he is. Pacquiao was never a knock out artist. Only person he legitimately knocked out was Ricky Hatton. Floyd's destruction of Corrales showed how much…

[QUOTE=bigjavi973;14786169]The same glen johnson with 19 losses? Johnson was garbage. When it was time to step up he got exposed and beat by lesser opposition. Eric hardings record is 23-4 and has only one notable win, tarver hahahaha. Griffin is…

[QUOTE=hugh grant;14786539]Yes id say so. That's why most fighters wish they could do it.[/QUOTE] So by that logic, Chavez is a better fighter than Whitaker, right?
