Ellerbe: Floyd Mayweather Determined To Stop Maidana!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, says WBC/WBA 147 & 154 champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. is getting additional motivation for the rematch with Marcos Maidana, because the Argentine fighter is doing a lot of trash talking. The rematch is set for September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Maidana has been complaining about Mayweather's refusal to allow him to wear the Everlast MX gloves.

“He has some added incentive because Chino has been talking a lot of trash and Floyd finds that very disrespectful. Chino has said that Floyd isn’t the great boxer that everyone thinks he is because he has been in the ring with him already. Come September 13th, Chino has to confront all the things he has been saying about Floyd head on," Ellerbe said.

Mayweather won a twelve round majority decision in their May fight. Ellerbe says the doubts about Mayweather's abilities, based on the outcome of the first meeting, has made the undefeated pound-for-pound king very focused on getting a knockout victory.

“I think this fight will start at the 13th round versus going back to the first round. Floyd is very determined to stop Chino. Floyd wants to stop him to make a point that he doesn’t want his ability to be second-guessed. Floyd feels in his mind that he absolutely won the first fight and some of the fans thought that Maidana had won the fight. Floyd has vowed that he will pick up right where he left off and make the fight as exciting as possible to prove to the fans that the first victory was warranted," Ellerbe said.

 “I truly believe that this fight will be much more exciting than the first fight because you will see much more action.
