Schaefer: Maidana Removed From The Floyd Race

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer advised that Adrien Broner's decision to exercise a rematch clause, has removed Marcos Maidana from the list of possibilities for Floyd Mayweather's scheduled return on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather has yet to name an opponent, but Maidana was viewed as a frontrunner, along with British superstar Amir Khan, to face Mayweather in May.

On Friday, Broner unexpectedly exercised his option for an immediate rematch with Maidana, which Schaefer plans to stage on April 19 or April 26. Broner hopes to avenge last month's unexpected unanimous decision loss to Maidana, where the Argentinian puncher scored two knockdowns and dished out punishment in numerous rounds.

While Maidana is no longer a possibility for Mayweather in May, the pound-for-pound king is also planning to fight in September - which opens up the door for the fight to get revisited - if both boxers win their upcoming ring appearances.

"Well, it obviously appears as such [that Maidana is no longer viable for Mayweather in May], but as we all know Floyd is planning on fighting twice this year, so there are going to be other dates available," Schaefer told

Schaefer is keeping a tight lid on giving any hints regarding Mayweather's potential opponent in May, although most view Khan as the solid favorite to land the fight.

So? And Maidana was forced to use gloves required by Floyd da best? What's the point of fighting someone, then require all these disadvantages? And you're bumping this thread? Can't believe these people downplay the gloves issue.

And the other choice was Khan. Floyd da best's only choices were Khan and Madonna. LMFAO. What's the point of this pathetic bump again?

[QUOTE=LoadedWraps] Prophetic.[/QUOTE] You understand he lost the fight, right? The statement was the opposite of prophetic.
