The undefeated, self proclaimed boxing villain, Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26 KO’s) will have to prove to the world tonight that he didn’t slip by Marcos Maidana in a rematch. In their last bout, Mayweather beat Maidana by a decision where the scorecards read: 114-114, 117-111, and 116-12.
Mayweather haters felt Maidana was robbed in their last fight, believing that Mayweather finally met his defeat. Floyd fans think the Argentinian pugilist brought borderline illegal tactics to the match. At one point in the brawl, viewers saw Maidana make contact with a head-butt, where the world’s number one pound for pound boxer saw his own blood for the first time in a fight.
Either way you look at the outcome from the last fight, there’s little doubt that Marcos Maidana gave Floyd Mayweather the hardest fight of his career. Floyd will already go down in the Boxing Hall of Fame, being the oldest boxer with an undefeated streak at 37, but with age comes declination. There’s a chance that the American boxer will lose to the younger fighter.
Love him or hate him though, ‘Money Mayweather’ is the closest thing we know today as a genius of the sweet science since Muhammad Ali. He’s not going to be around forever, and this might be one of the last times you can see a boxing prodigy on live television. Tonight Floyd hopes to shut his haters up again and dominate Maidana, though this might not happen until he faces Manny Pacquiao in a much soughed over Super Fight.
