Maidana Waits on Mayweather, No Hurry To Return

By Elisinio Castillo

Former champion Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31KOs) is going to stay away from the ring until Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs) make an official decision regarding a planned return on September 13.

Maidana has been relaxing since the twelve round majority decision loss to Mayweather in their May welterweight unification.
 
Because the fight was closer, and much tougher for Mayweather than many expects predicted, Maidana believes he did enough to secure an immediate rematch.

Maidana says his advisers, Sebastian Contoursi and Al Haymon, will work out the details regarding a rematch. Haymon is also the adviser to Mayweather.

"If Mayweather offers me the rematch, obviously I will accept it. Although I do not know if he will, and I realize that this is a business - I'm not desperate to fight. I did not win because I missed the opportunity to land a defining punch, plus [Mayweather] is an extraordinary boxer. Although I'm happy with the work I did, I thought the fight would be more difficult," Maidana said.

I can't see Mayweather offering Maidana a rematch after what Maidana put him through the first time. Floyd's ribs are probably still sore.

[QUOTE=Mike_R;14679188]I think the Cotto rematch is Floyd's most dangerous option right now.[/QUOTE] I disagree although cotto looked really good against Martinez who clearly wasn't 100 percent maidana is definitely the better fighter against Floyd mayweather not talking anything away from…

[QUOTE=Doctor_Tenma;14678590]I'd pick Pacquiao as well but I doubt your dumb enough to believe this[/QUOTE] You could've use a better word than "dumb". Also, it's at least a lot more believable than Maidana stopping Pacquiao early.
