Mayweather (46-0, 26 KOs) won a twelve round majority decision over Maidana (35-4, 31 KOs) in May of this year.

Maidana says he is sparring with Steve Forbes, a former world super featherweight champion with a record of 35 wins, 13 losses and 11 knockouts, Puerto Rico's Thomas Dulorme, who is the current NABF junior welterweight champion with a record of 21 wins, 14 of these by knockout with only 1 defeat, and undefeated two-division champion Miguel Angel "Mikey" Garcia, who has an undefeated record of 34 wins with 28 of these by knockout.
