Mayweather: Please Don't Cheat To Beat Me, Earn It!

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr (46-0, 26KOs) has been very, very vocal about the rough tactics of Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31KOs) in their May fight, which Mayweather won with a twelve round majority decision.

Mayweather claims Maidana was using his head, elbows, knees, forearms, and throwing illegal punches to the back of head and below the belt.  He also alleges that Maidana attempted to wear gloves that were manipulated to have very little padding around the knuckles. Because Mayweather refused to move forward if Maidana used the Everlast MX gloves, the Argentine puncher was forced to select another style of gloves from Everlast.

A rematch is now scheduled for September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. 

"With me and Canelo, it was more of a chess match as opposed to Maidana who came at me very dirty and reckless. I knew something crazy was going to happen in our fight, which it did, I got a headbutt," Mayweather said.

"Even though we are in a brutal sport, if you beat me, do it the right way. I got here with hard work and dedication and a strong belief in my team. Please don't cheat to beat me, if you are going to beat me, earn it the hard way.

Whiner D Ucker speaks again. SSDD. Man I hope Maidana rearranges his dome like never before. And I will laugh at this chump as he's drunk in the gutter in 10 years.
