J. Mayweather: Maidana, Others Did Better Than Pacquiao

By Edward Chaykovsky

Trainer Jeff Mayweather, the uncle of WBC/WBA welterweight king Floyd Mayweather Jr., says his nephew received a stiffer test from Marcos Maidana than he did from the May 2nd mega-fight with Manny Pacquiao.

Maidana faced Mayweather twice in 2014. The first time, last May, resulted in a highly competitive fight which generated a September rematch. Mayweather won both fights by way of twelve round decision.

Pacquiao, who believes he was robbed on the official cards, allowed Mayweather to dictate the pace of their contest from the opening bell. With pace slowed to Mayweather's liking, it was easy for him to box his way to a twelve round decision win.

Mayweather credits Maidana and Miguel Cotto as being two of his toughest opponents in the last few years.

"I agree [that Maidana did better than Pacquiao]. There are other fighters that have done better, not just Maidana. Maidana did real well in the first fight, but he didn’t do as well as people thought either. The one thing is this, Floyd dominates fights so easy, that any time a guy wins three or four rounds, they say he lost, which is ridiculous. That is what it is, but the truth is that he’s still undefeated. All these years the judges have still been getting it right at the end of the day," Jeff told On The Ropes Boxing Radio .

Do people think Pac will have a warm up fight before fighting Floyd again? Im sure Floyd will not want Pac to have a warm up and hold his retirement up too much.
