Team Maidana Will Touch Gloves Issue For Mayweather

By Salvador Rodriguez

Sebastián Contursi, who heads the team behind former champion Marcos Maidana, is hopeful of a deal for a September 13th rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr. This past May, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Maidana gave Mayweather all he could handle in a twelve round majority decision defeat. Al Haymon, who advised both Maidana and Mayweather, is handling the discussions between both sides.

One of the biggest controversies prior to the Mayweather-Maidana bout was the issue of gloves. Mayweather refused to allow Maidana to use his preferred brand of Everlast gloves. Despite the Nevada State Athletic Commission approving Maidana's choice of gloves, Mayweather refused to go forward until the Argentine star selected a different type. Contursi wants to avoid the same type of controversy arising on the eve of the fight.

"I can not say how close or how far away we are [in making a deal. The important thing now is that there is interest from both sides," said Contursi. "Hopefully things will be defined favorably in the coming days, but in big fights you know that negotiations are not easy."

"The gloves will surely be included in the negotiations as detailed as possible, but we have not even touched that subject. I do not know where the information came from that we got a million and a half dollars for Maidana to use the gloves that he used in the May fight."

[QUOTE=hitking;14724678]Its just how boxing is. Cotto pulled all kinda "A-side" bullsh1t with Martinez. And Martinez was the defending champion. I mean, what point does a 159 catchweight serve? He did it cause he could. Floyd does the same. Why is…
