Floyd Mayweather Jr. is predicting that his ring smarts will trump Marcos Maidana's grit, in their much anticipated rematrch next month. The World Boxing Council/World Boxing Association welterweight and super welterweight champion will face Maidana on Saturday, September 13th, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
This event will be live broadcasted by Showtime Pay Per View for the United States, and Latin America by Combate Space.
On May 3rd, Mayweather (46-0, 26 KOs) defeated Maidana (35-4, 31 KOs) by twelve round majority decision in an entertaining fight.
Mayweather mused: "The first fight was exciting. He has the will to defeat me. He's a tough fighter. But, I'll demonstrate the difference in the rematch, as I will be faster and stronger. Maidana always fights in the same way...but I'm versatile, capable of doing different things in each fight. I can box, I can counter punch and I can move. Forty five fighters have tried to beat me... and none of them have succeeded. The only way I see Maidana beating me is by knockout, but that'll never, ever happen."
