Mayweather-Maidana II Deal Looms For Next Week

By Elisinio Castillo

Sebastian Contoursi, the adviser to Marcos "Chino" Maidana (35-4, 31KOs), is hoping to finalize an agreement for a planned rematch with WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs) on September 13th at a venue to be determined. Showtime Pay-Per-View would carry the fight. 

Insiders expect an official announcement as early as Monday of next week. Discussions are ongoing between the two sides. Both fighters share the same team adviser in Al Haymon. They fought on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather won a twelve round majority decision. Maidana was very competitive in a bout where many predicted a one-sided contest in favor of Mayweather.

Mayweather went on national television, during the BET Awards, and revealed that he planned to face Maidana on September 13. Contoursi confirmed the two sides are discussing the terms.

"We have still not officially completed [a deal] for the fight. Therefore anything is possible, but Mayweather has stated that Maidana will be his next opponent," explained Contursi to Mas Deportes. "Mayweather has a habit of deciding his opponents very close to the date of the fight. He did the same thing when he announced that Marcos would be his opponent for May 3. He revealed the name of Marcos on March 8th [less than two months before the PPV date]. Hopefully Marcos will be the opponent."

[QUOTE=IMDAZED;14726702]That's fine as long as they're realistic.[/QUOTE] I'm on the verge of being openly hostile towards Mayweather/Pacquiao happening. It's a cash grab at this point, it won't mean anything close to what it might have. I can't say I don't…
