Mayweather Warns: Rematch Would Be Totally Different!

By Luis Sandoval

Floyd “Money” Mayweather’s 46th victory didn’t come easy as hard hitting Marcos “Chino” Maidana put on an immense amount of pressure and made it a rough fight. Despite the physical nature of the fight, Mayweather was able to adapt and came out on top as he was awarded a majority decision victory.

The reigning pound for pound king had promised he would not move and stay in front of Maidana and was forced to deal with the relentlessness Maidana is known to bring. Many are already calling for a rematch and Mayweather assures if they do fight a second time, things will be a lot different.

“I can really just stay off the ropes totally and just box and move and when he gets close to me just tie him up. I could’ve done that all night. If we do fight again, if I do fight again, it won’t be the same fight. It’ll be totally different,” Mayweather would tell BoxingScene.

Many were expecting a blow out in this fight but after getting a more competitive fight, some are questioning Mayweather and some fans are even saying Maidana did enough to win. Mayweather feels that people are used to seeing him dominate fighters from the opening bell to the last and when he finally gets a competitive fight, they perceive things differently.

“People are used to seeing me go out there and blow people out; 12-0. But then finally when a guy can win, let’s say out of 12 rounds he can win 4, they’re like oh man, what’s going on with Floyd. We’ve never seen this before. If a guy wins 3 or 4 rounds then a lot of people are like oh, he won the fight. But you know in the arena, there were a lot of his fans from Argentina cheering him on and which is a good thing. But he knows as well as I know that he lost. If he didn’t think he [was losing] he wouldn’t have came out in the 12th round like he did,” stated the newly crowned unified WBC and WBA Welterweight champion.

Mayweather had recently hinted at retirement despite having three fights left on his Showtime contract but he did say he was on board with a rematch if that’s what the fans and Maidana wanted. September 13th is the slated date for Floyd’s return and we’ll see if Mayweather participates in only the second rematch of his career.
