Wilder: Mayweather Will Play With Maidana, Look For KO

By Edward Chaykovsky

Hveayweight banger Deontay Wilder predicts an easy victory for WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., when the pound-for-pound king faces WBA champion Marcos Maidana in a unification enouncter on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather returns from a dominating fall victory over former junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, who Wilder views as a better fighter than Maidana.

"When he fought Canelo — and I think Canelo is an awesome fighter too, I think Canelo is better than Maidana, tough wise and skill wise, and Floyd played around with him. I’m just gonna imagine what he’s gonna do with Maidana," Wilder told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

"Not only is this a fight, but I think it’s a totally different fight for Floyd because it got a little bit more meaning on it because I think he’s looking for revenge for the Broner fight. When you’re looking for revenge, you’re gonna put a little more effort. I think he’s gonna come and try to punish him for a couple of rounds and I’m looking for him to try to knock him out. He wants to punish him, he wants to make a statement with this one, that’s for sure. I got Floyd for this fight all the way."

Floyd never looks for KO's anymore but he especially won't have to in this fight Maidana won't find Floyd with any meaningful punches he'll get busted up and hurt to the body in this fight Floyd will shut him out…

Why is this bum Wilder suddenly the expert on all things boxing? Because he beat the Unknown Comic who laid down for him last time? What a freakin' joke -- this former sport has become "sports entertainment." Wilder has beaten…

Floyd boxes, but he does not run. He does not turn around and run around the ring. He punches and moves to the right or the left. Why makes an excuse for non-skilled fighters that cannot box. It is called…
