Maidana: Fans Pay For Boxing, Not Mayweather Running

By Elisinio Castillo

Former champion Marcos Maidana (34-5, 31KOs) is getting the royal treatment back home in Argentina. He returned home after losing a twelve round unanimous decision to WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. in their rematch last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I have not seen the fight yet, but when I was in there I thought I was winning. I'm going to watch to see what flaws I have and why [the fight] was given to him," Maidana said. "He went out there to run. He is a gazelle. People pay to watch boxing, not [Mayweather running]."

Maidana said he hopes "to make a fight in Argentina." Right now he plans to rest with his wife and child and then he will consider his career options for 2015.

Maidana fans buy... They wouldn't be present in the PPV market if Maidana was the A-side.
