Schaefer Expects Mayweather-Maidana To Go Forward

By Edward Chaykovsky

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer expects tomorrow's welterweight unification between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Marcos Maidana to go forward as planned at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Following Friday's weigh-in, the two camps clashed over Maidana's Everlast gloves. Mayweather's camp felt the glove was lacking the proper padding. The Nevada State Athletic Commission agreed. The two sides then disagreed over Maidana wearing another pair of Everlast gloves - which the NSAC approved. Mayweather Promotions CEO, Leonard Ellerbe, threatened to call off the fight.

"Everything will be OK, it's just a matter of the teams working out which kind of gloves they will use," Schaefer said to USA Today."They're still talking about it but everything will be worked out."

"I'm told they're going to fight, they're both going to wear gloves and everyone is going to be happy."

"You always have some kind of controversy where it makes Friday night miserable for the promoter."

[QUOTE=KnickTillDeaTh;14496902]First off Maidana will make far more then 1.5 mill., that's just his guaranteed purse. Second, who of the two need the fight and the money more? Certainly not Mayweather. I respect your opinion but that's a horrible assessment of…

I can see a lot of you are not seeing the big picture. If Maidana's first pair of gloves weren't approve then why should Floyd trust him with his second pair? Commission approved or not. Fact remains that they got…

If they came with a dirty pair first, then I'm gonna make sure your wearing a clean pair to. So I understand saying he can't wear the back up pair cause trust is broken at that point. A lot of…
