“In 1988, Sugar Ray Leonard conquered the vacant super middleweight championship as well as the light heavyweight championship in possession of Donny Lalonde in a memorable ninth-round knockout.”
Lalonde was a cherry-picked opponent.
They promised the unknown Lalonde millions in return for boiling down to the 168 weight limit. But his LHW title should not have been at stake. There’s a rule that you can’t win 2 Divisional titles in one fight.
Andre Ward didn’t win Chad Dawson’s LHW title when he fought Chad at 168… James Toney didn’t win Iran Barkley’s LHW title when he fought Iran at 168… Leonard had a more pull with the orgs and commissions.
Leonard fought Lalonde because he was giving up the 160lb title he won from Hagler. He didn’t want to face top ranked Mike McCallum, Michael Nunn, or Julian Jackson.Posted August 30, 2014 1:12 am

By World Boxing Council
Floyd Mayweather Jr. to defend both WBC 147 & 154 titles on September 13th.
The WBC has decided to step forward and support yet another pinnacle in the history-making career of Floyd Mayweather Jr. Floyd is the only fighter ever to conquer WBC championships in five different weight categories as well as winning the WBC Diamond Belt and Solid Gold Belt. Further, Floyd has the distinction of being one of the few champions who has received the WBC “Emeritus Champion” status.
Marcos Maidana is without a doubt a fighter who has created his own history in the sport. This past May, Marcos performed like no Mayweather opponent had in many years. That makes the September 13 rematch a very attractive event where Maidana could become the WBC Welter and Super Welter Champion of the world.
There is a rich history behind the uncommon situation this great battle presents. It has been 26 years since it last happened, when Sugar Ray Leonard defeated Donny Lalonde to claim the super middleweight and light heavyweight WBC World Championhsips.
Other examples are:
130 years ago, Jack Dempsey, known as “Nonpareil” (not the better known heavyweight legend who later took after this name), defeated George Fulljames after 22 rounds in Staten Island, New York, claiming the welter and middleweight championships of the world.
On April 24, 1931, at the “Chicago Stadium,” Tony Canzoneri defended his lightweight title while winning the super lightweight title held by his opponent Jack “Kid” Berg, from the U.K. Both fighters weighed in within the lightweight limit.
In 1933, Barney Ross defeated Canzoneri, winning both the light and super lightweight world titles .
In the late 1930s, Henry Armstrong was recognized as the featherweight, lightweight and welterweight champion of the world simultaneously .
In 1988, Sugar Ray Leonard conquered the vacant super middleweight championship as well as the light heavyweight championship in possession of Donny Lalonde in a memorable ninth-round knockout.
The WBC is proud to be part of this historic promotion. The WBC wishes the best of luck to both fighters and great success to the promoters of the event.Posted August 29, 2014 3:02 pm
i watched the first fight a couple of times, it was close , but i thought mayweather just won it with the cleaner shots when madina tired… the ref defiantly helped mayweather a bit in the later half, by breaking things up very quickly, but madina was roughing him up and punching widely , but then again mayweather wasn’t really engaging on the ropes he was just doing his defense thing and bending down and away a lot…. so if he got hit on the top (sometimes back) of the head a lot its his own fault… he did fire the odd flashy shot from the ropes but the vast majority of the time it was defense as always, mayweahther doesnt do wars, most of his good work came from the outside , which happened when madina tired and the ref stepped in more.. mayweather won it, but it was very close and a draw could have been fair if you rate aggression and actually making a fight a lot.. in my opinion of course…Posted August 29, 2014 1:41 pm

You guys “counting punches” or using Compubox to tell your story have FAILED before you started… that tool does NOT figure in official scoring and is super subjective… Also its effect is skewed even if accurate because fights are scored based on ROUNDS… If a guy lands 200 punches in one round and then 10 per round for the remaining 11 he can still lose the fight according to this scenario if his opponent averages 15 punches per round for the remaining 11 after getting banged 200x in the first round because he will have landed 5 more punches per in the following 11 rounds thus sweeping the fight 11-1 if it were all that neat and tidy… Forget Compubox and focus on what REALLY happened…Posted August 29, 2014 9:55 am

TARK Look man, you’re the one that said “Floyd won SO EASILY that it was pathetic” and you’re ALONE and WRONG on that won. Your problem is that you HAVE TO FEEL THAT YOU’VE WON, regardless of whether you’re correct or not! I NEVER said Castillo won, did I?? NEVER!! My point is that it was HARD fight for Floyd, NOT A PATHETICALLY EASY ONE like you insist!! Get It?? Give up man, you’re making yourself look kind’a bad. The 2nd fight Floyd won more comfortably yet the SCORES WERE CLOSER!! You’re beating a dead horse here. Turn the page, get over it. Or.. are you trying to protect your “0”?? Well I got news for you, you lost your “0” a long time ago, as did I, the difference being that I’m willing to admit when I’m wrong.

That a load of bull. The three judges had scores close to each other. They are and are part of that “boxing world” you’re talking about.. The only thing different is they weren’t listening to the biased commentary, and weren’t influence by it.
Do me a favor. Watch the 5th round with the sound COMPLETELY OFF. Count the clean effective punches by each. Be as honest as you can. Tell me your score. You won’t do it because you’d rather be “right” than objective.Posted August 29, 2014 1:54 am

Hecdog says… “Tark my friend, I posted my thoughts to the Castillo Mayweather fight last night, and the punch score for round 5 was Floyd 15 punches and Castillo 8 punches.”
Good… That’s a START!!! … That’s round that the HBO crew and HBO punch stat man gave to Castillo — but YOU had Floyd out punching Castillo almost 2 to 1…
Go over the ENTIRE FIGHT and observe it just as carefully with the sound OFF COMPLETELY!!! … and see what your score is… You’ll be amazed again… if you’re just as observant and objective as you were for the 5th round… You’ll see Floyd won the fight by a clear margin and you were influence by the HBO crew and the faulty punch stats some IDIOT generated.Posted August 28, 2014 7:24 pm
BTW… For Mayweather-Castillo II a “hit-team” of judges were appointed to rob Mayweather — including Ken Morita, a judge who had Mike Tyson winning versus Buster Douglas at the end of their fight. Douglas was the winner of 9 of 10 rounds.
That’s why you see Mayweather shutting out Castillo in their 2nd fight and even the HBO crew said the scores didn’t reflect what happened in the ring.Posted August 28, 2014 6:37 pm
EZ E says.., ” “TARK “Floyd beat Castillo so easily it’s pathetic. Look at the judges scores. A 4 and 5 point margin on all 3 cards.” … hmmm… That’s basically why there was so much outrage with the verdict” ”
You didn’t hear any outrage from me… I agreed with the judges completely.
I don’t listen to the commentary unless it’s somebody like Roy Jones… George Foreman… Paulie Malignaggi… Sugar Ray Leonard… Emmanuel Steward… or other top boxer or trainer who has good professional experience. Their professionalism allows them to not get caught up in rooting for somebody – but to actually observe and evaluate what’s happening.
The talking heads don’t know anything.
Even the pros can get fooled by bad punch stats and group think. That’s why you turn the sound off if nobody is bringing the group back on point. The faulty punch stats and Harold Lederman drove the Mayweather-Castillo 1 stupidity. They got WAY away from reality.
They didn’t know what they were looking at. Turn the sound off completely – and count the clean, effective punches landed in the 5th round – which the HBO crew had JLC winning.. Then compare that to the punches thrown and landed on the punch stats. You might be amazed.Posted August 28, 2014 6:29 pm

Floyds too smart and too disciplined to fall for tough guy talk to lure him into a brawl. Maidana’s going to come in swinging like a windmill and Floyd’s going to weather the 4 round storm. Then its Floyds turn. I seriously think he’s going to catch Maidana reaching and catch him with a check hook or a straight right. There’s always the possibility that Maidana can catch Floyd with one of his awkward swinging punches. Maidana is dangerous but his demise will be his no fear attitude. He’s a one trick pony where as Floyd shows us something different every fight. Not one fight has he ever exposed himself and he’s always been able to figure out his opponent. Maidanas fight style was exposed 8 rounds ago he’s unable to change his style.Posted August 28, 2014 3:30 pm
@ hecdog. Point of correction. I hate no man. After all these praises about Pacman like he is Mr. Perfect, Your answer to these questions about your role model…I need just a yes or no
1. Was Manny Pacquiao KOed by Marquez? (The greatest fighter?)
2. Did he gamble, cheat, womanize and participate in orgies after swearing an oath to his wife to be faithful?(role model to children)
3. Did his father eat his dog?(Street urchin, pickpocket, and street drug peddler)
Remember a YES or NO is all I need.

SRED Yep, he wasn’t near as popular as he is now but he already had a few fights in Vegas and WAS already being groomed as the next big thing and a HBO poster boy, especially after the Corrales fight. MY point STILL is contrary to Tark’s opinion, it WASN’T an easy fight. I believe EzE objectively summed it up pretty well this time. I get your points but for that particular fight your argument actually doesn’t apply, because like you yourself said, he wasn’t the Money May he is now. Regards!Posted August 28, 2014 12:48 pm
Las Vegas was NOT exactly Mayweathers “hometown” back then… That was before he became a Superstar!! Every fighter that gives Floyd a decent scrap automatically gets treated like a god, or as if he won the fight JUST because Mayweather did not totally dominate him… Floyd suffers from this more than any other active boxer because his wins over the years have been so comprehensive, the record is not riddled with draws and S/D’s, he is not getting knocked off his feet or badly banged up… If people cannot get an ACTUAL loss they will settle for moral victory which is NOT the same as winning…Posted August 28, 2014 12:25 pm
Tark I gotto say that I have to agree with EzE, it was a close and tough fight and MAYBE Floyd won but it wasn’t by no means was an easy fight. I was sort of a Mayweather fan back then and remember having it a possibly biased draw but hopefully suspected that Mayweather would get it, let’s not forget that he was Arum’s boy at the time. No way was Castillo gonna get the decision especially in Vegas. The reaction of May’s hometown Las Vegas crowd was also an indicator of what actually went on in the ring that night. I remember feeling kind of bad for Castillo afterwards.Posted August 28, 2014 12:20 pm

hmmm… That’s basically why there was so much outrage with the verdict, or don’t you remember? I remember Lampley, who usually bends backward for the HBO house fighter, dejectedly saying after the verdict was announced, “Not the fight we saw.” So by your standards.. then I guess you thought that Floyd pitched a SHUTOUT in the second fight ALTHOUGH the official scores were actually CLOSER than the first, huh??!! Get it?? Oh well…Posted August 27, 2014 11:54 pm
TARK “Very easily”?? hmmm.. that’s basically the difference between you and me. Didn’t you watch the fight,how rough it got, the concern corners, Floyd’s face during the action, between rounds, the concern during and after the fight besides the fight itself?? You were a fighter? A trainer?? EASILY?? or “VERY EASILY”?? Com’on man, you’re more than just a casual fan, TARK!! Maybe my ring and corner experience perceived somethings way different than your’s. Now oddly enough, if you care to heck the scorecards, the fight was scored CLOSER in the 2nd fight than in the first!! Ever wonder WHY?? Most every sports page and even the WHOLE HBO crew itself thought and expressed disgust with the verdict of the CONTROVERSIAL 1st fight. An “easy” controversial fight?? No, sorry TARK, he didn’t win ‘easily’. You surprised/disappointed me with that one. “Easily”?? And to get back on you comparison with Brandon and Alvarado.. NO, they AREN’T the same. Brandon is MORE of a warrior than Alvarado. Brandon would’ve NEVER checked out of a fight on his stool. There IS a difference. With all your trainer experience I thought you would pick out where I was coming. I guess we have difference experiences with BIG fights or with fighters on that level. And again, “EASILY”?? No way. Anyway, cool, it’s all good, you have your opinions and I have mine’s.Posted August 27, 2014 11:37 pm
never going to happen. Mayweather will stick and move and hold if he gets cornered. If he stays in the pocket his reflexes are still good enough to slip and avoid Maidanas wild punches. If he stays in the pocket more as the fight moves on then we will all know his legs are gone. I thought the last fight that age might be catching up to Mayweather. I guess I will read about it the day after the fight.Posted August 27, 2014 9:31 pm
Hecdog… Don’t lie… Mayweather every easily beat Castillo… Then he fought him again and beat him much worse.
Watch the fights on YouTube and turn the sound off. Keep your eyes peeled and count the count the number of clean punches landed.
BE HONEST AND DON’T CHEAT!!!! I know you will cheat though. You hate Floyd

We disagree on this Barlow, there is NO WAY that Algieri and Maidana are in the same category as threat levels… Maidana was ranked at WW, then a Champion at the weight Floyd fought him at… Algieri is a result of the Top Rank stable being depleted of matchups and rematches that can be milked for Gods sake Arum wants Pac Man in with Marquez AGAIN in 2015 when JMM will be what? 42?? Maidana gave Floyd one of his MOST competitive bouts I can’t see how that is an issue as far as a rematch… We all wanna see the best mix it up, but lets assume that Manny and Floyd fight next week, then what? it will be back to facing tough non elite comp like Maidana, and other up and comers because the sport only provides for a few elite fighters and not all of them are in the same weight class… Ward coming off a layoff and facing the #1 Contender does not strike me as a bad matchup it sounds like your issue is that he made the fight look easy due to his skill level, in fairness Rodriguez lasted longer than Chad Dawson who was the #1 LWH fighter in the World for MANY years and had never been stopped.. Garcia, Kova, GGG and Peterson all are taking on some weak opposition… Golovkin stepped it up with Geale but Kovalev has been cakewalking and we all know the card at the Barclays with Peterson and Garcia was trash… Its tough to keep it going but knocking the Elites for making other Champs or World Class fighters look bad is kind of unfair in my opinion…

Giuseppe Garibaldi- This is boxing, the art of hit and not get hit.

I sorta agree with Maidana even though I’m a fan of the sweet science. I don’t see Mayweather sitting there trade with him all cause of the fact that Mayweather doesn’t have the power to push him back. So on that note get ready for another boxing lesson Maidana.Posted August 27, 2014 9:56 am
I had some interest in the first Madiana fight but have very little in the second. Im probably doing Maidana a miservice here but I genuinley think Floyd was just toying with him in their first fight. I think he was tring a style which he hoped would be more fan friendly and make for a more entertaining fight, but this made him less effective and made the fight look closer than it was. This was Floyds plan A, but he had a plan B which he could have implemented at any time were he to get to the point where he actually started loosing the fight. This time out is will be all plan B and Maidana is getting a boxing lesson on route to a boring shut out decision for Floyd. Pac on the other hand will just give Algieri a beat down. There may be a little entertainment here but not a great deal.Posted August 27, 2014 9:55 am
SREDMOND – I genuinely think they are as bad as each other. Neither want to fight the ‘best’, they just want to fight the rest. There’s some real stinkers of fights being made these days. GGG against Rubio? Ward V Rodrigez? Steveson V Fonfara? Garcia V Salka? Peteson V Santana? Kovalev V Sillah, Agnew and Caparello? I could go on. All thes guys are guys at and around the top of the sport. They are Marquee names who meed to be in competative fight and competetive fight.Posted August 27, 2014 9:47 am
Boxing Barlow, I don’t think there is a realistic comparison between the threat Floyd faces in Maidana and the one that Pac Man faces in Algieri… Despite squeaking past Provo, Algieri is really not a World Class fighter whereas Maidana has been a problem for almost everyone he has faced and has stopped 31 fighters… As for May and Pac retiring or being forced to that is an imminent reality given their ages…Posted August 27, 2014 9:13 am
Mayweather opponents with their amateur psychology really crack me up ie “Stand and fight like a Man” Maidana begging for Floyd to be less elusive sounds like desperation to me, Mayweather gave him plenty of opportunity to land the money punch last time they fought and Maidana by his own admission was unable to hurt Floyd… Chino claims that he was the one who put FMJ on the ropes, well then he should be able to do that again to better effect this time without asking for Mayweather to fight in a style that is more favorable to him…Posted August 27, 2014 9:09 am
Mayweather V Maidana, Pac V Agieri. It just makes me wanna follow another sport. Thank god for the Carl Froch’s of the world who fight the best and go out there ‘gun slinging’. Im quickly coming to the conclusion that the best thing Mayweather and Pac could do for the sport is retire.Posted August 27, 2014 8:32 am
He glossed me!
He did last time…snapping your head back with pinpoint accuracy as you desperately clutched and held all night. We hope you keep you hands up and throw punches instead of hugsPosted August 27, 2014 7:51 am
squeal – I here ya bro, I bet 20 bucks on lara winning a decision, yet I was so thoroughly disgusted in what I saw that I was thrilled he lost. it was truly a deplorable performancePosted August 27, 2014 6:35 am
I expect to see Floyd spin away if he gets caught on the ropes and try to stay in the centre of the ring more. He will be more elusive this time unless his legs have really gone.Posted August 27, 2014 6:34 am
And don’t get me started on Lara. I scored him a 2 round winner against Canelo, but many rounds were swing ones. His hit and run style is unappealing and I’ll rejoice if I never watch him fight again. He bottled his opportunity to make a claim as worth watching.Posted August 27, 2014 4:59 am
Floyd stayed in the pocket as he was made to, he didn’t do it because he wanted to be exciting, that’s the biggest bs statement. He fights the same way everytime. Maidana made floyd miss a lot to so plenty of others could as well.Posted August 27, 2014 4:26 am

celestino – what lara did was a disgrace to the sport. Floyd doesn’t run, he sticks and moves, lara just flat out refused to fight. canelo lander the harder more meaningful punches (majority body punches) and got a deserved victory. lara ended his own career with that performance. it was utterly diabolical, cowardly and pathetic. Floyd has a nice mix of defense and offence. lara has only defence and a few half hearted 1-2 combo’s. I hope lara never gets a big payday again. he ruined what should have been a good fightPosted August 27, 2014 3:00 am

Maidana wants Floyd to brawl toe-to-toe??? Wonder of wonders
Why would Floyd do that? Will they penalize Floyd for sticking, moving, and boxing from range… like they did Erislandy Lara???
I don’t think so.Posted August 27, 2014 1:16 am
Miadana sucks that why the SOB tried dirty fighting, The ref does his job this time Floyd beat his ass easy end of story.Posted August 27, 2014 12:40 am
Remember this is fight two, Floyd is promising a performance, he claim his hands were hurt , his old lady was on his back, he underestimated cupcake, so he has to beat up the cupcake or Floyd a old twinkie that seen his days.Posted August 27, 2014 12:10 am
Thurmal Underwear, that right maidana won 5-6 round last time, Floyd want to shut out him so if chino wind just 4 round even 1-2 round Floyd can’t handle brawlers.Posted August 26, 2014 11:58 pm
I’m sorry raza for acting like a mayate lover like el tigre said.yes its true i am not a real ghetto thug.but I do watch a lot of movies about them.& I wish someday I”ll be one.bueno disculpas para todos.♡:O:-)Posted August 26, 2014 11:56 pm
MM should ask Mayweather to stand close enough to him so May can read the letters on his gloves!Posted August 26, 2014 11:52 pm
Floyd is going to box maidana head off we see that maidana couldn’t take it when Floyd was in the center of the ring he was getting tired and Floyd was poping maidana head off and that’s what Floyd is going to do this time fight in the center of the ring a boxing lesson ma dana wont forgetPosted August 26, 2014 11:52 pm
@wannabe ghetto thug.chinga tu puta madre mayate lover.vatos vendidos como tu los puteamos en todas partes..pinchi lacra…VIVA MEXICO!!! Y vamos maidana.Posted August 26, 2014 11:40 pm
If Floyd can’t beat up maidana he getting old and slow, time to retire is right. Maidana has his number and win 4 strong rounds.
^ummm? is this guy serious. 4 rounds huh. 4 out of 12. right.Posted August 26, 2014 11:25 pm
Hooked on Ebonics
Floyd only stands and fights like a women when he’s fighting women and children.Posted August 26, 2014 11:23 pm
The first fight Floyd stayed in the pocket and made Maidana miss while he countered. It looked more than waht it actually was but most of Marcos punches missed he hit behind the head in the nutts knned everything he could while Floyd simply let him run our of gas after the 5th round Floyd took over and I dont think the first fight was a close as the judges had it. Marcos didnt land sht. Look for Floyd to move more and counter more and keep the fight off the ropes. He easily outboxes the slow Maidana. Cotto had more success against MW than MiadanaPosted August 26, 2014 11:22 pm

Maywaether would have few problems with Maidana if he could sit on his punches. I don’t thin his hands can handle that. With brittle hands and legs that are turning to stone, the end is nearing.Posted August 26, 2014 11:11 pm
Maidana has a great style to beat Mayweather, he starts with the jab throwing 2 or 3 and working his way to throwing combos. This fight is Maidana to winPosted August 26, 2014 11:02 pm
(Get over it) your correct, I watched the fight so many times, and Floyd backed maidana up several times. I’ve always liked maidaina because of his offense, and heart. I dont think maidana is all that slow. And i think he is smart in the ring. But a little wild. He seems to time floyd a little close. The kid is good. But floyd,Like someone said in their post, “Floyd has to remain focused.” And that is so true because Chino is coming. He won’t be a middleweight this time because he want more speed. I think he’ll try to box Floyd early, and then pick up the pace later. maybe earlier if no success. I CAN’T WAIT!Posted August 26, 2014 10:55 pm
yes chino, you better pray lil Floyd stands and trades, it’s your only chance, of course he wont do that, he’ll tag and run for ten rounds and rest on the ropes for two rounds. mayweather UD 118 – 110Posted August 26, 2014 10:49 pm
Maidana will be getting a boxing lesson…lol he actually thinks Mayweather will stand and trade with him….Mayweather will use his legs more this fight and completely embarrass Maidana this time….Maidana has NO boxing skills defense and footwork and must resort to fighting dirty because of it….look for point deductions or even a possible disqualification from Maidana for dirty tactics this fightPosted August 26, 2014 10:35 pm
CORRECTION….Its OVER FOR him. FINITOPosted August 26, 2014 10:04 pm
Maidana is more DONE than Bill Clinton’s presidential run. He came with his BEST Legal AND Illegal shots and STILL lost. What MORE can he possibly offer???? Its OVER him. FINITO.Posted August 26, 2014 10:03 pm
And we hope you come to box and not do MMA. Looks like there are still plenty of PBF haters that will continue to be disappointed after the fight as they hope and prey for a savior to give him a loss. Maidana ain’t that guy, just face the facts. Your looking for a one trick pony who can’t make adjustments to make better adjustments than the smartest boxer on the planet.Posted August 26, 2014 10:03 pm
Real talk = Real talkPosted August 26, 2014 10:02 pm
Translation I hope Floyd stands still and let’s me hit him. He fought you the first time and beat you at your own game. Second time will be easy and probably embarrassing for Maidana.Posted August 26, 2014 9:56 pm
Credit to Floyd for doing it again, he could have taken another route and made just as much. Credit also for staying hungry all these years, rare Champion.
^exactly. wow, before they were crying REMATCH and it’s rematch time and…….? haha it ain’t easy to be on top man. it’s lonely. Floyd is built for it though.Posted August 26, 2014 9:53 pm

yeah yeah, this fight is a fix!! Maidana gets paid a lot of money to LOSE again.Posted August 26, 2014 9:22 pm
The only chance a Maidana has, is if Mayweather slips up and gets caught and knocked out. This is the only way a slower fighter will ever beat someone quicker than them. Its that simple, Maidana is too slow. Mayweather knows this and this is the reason he picked Maidana over Khan. Mayweather doesnt need to wait for Miadana to make a mistake because he can outbox him, but Maidana has absolutely no chance unless Mayweather loses his concentration.
^wrong. anticipation neutralizes speed, but it requires a high boxing IQ, which neither Maidana or yourself has.Posted August 26, 2014 9:21 pm
Floyd doesn’t have to be anything other than an elite boxer.
^this.Posted August 26, 2014 9:20 pm
“MAIDANA I’m sorry to tell you but Mayweather does not stand to fight like a man!!!!!”-Nope! He stands to Fight like a WINNER!!!!! Proving that you’re a MAN is LESSER than WINNING. Shannon Briggs agrees with ME on that. Derek Chisora agrees with ME TOO. SO does Vinny Pazienza.Posted August 26, 2014 9:18 pm
You don’t get to pick your best quote the public do. Have a splendid evening.Posted August 26, 2014 9:16 pm
Actually, I’m hoping that Floyd Jr. controls this fight to the point that if he wants, he’ll be able to dance around the ring on his toes like Pee Wee Herman for a few rounds.Posted August 26, 2014 9:13 pm

“Boxtras best quote ever…. ” brains beats bronze” anyday.”-Nope. MY BEST quote is that SKILLS is the most important factor in Boxing. I continue to bank alot of WINS off of that.Posted August 26, 2014 9:05 pm
MAIDANA I’m sorry to tell you but Mayweather does not stand to fight like a man!!!!!Posted August 26, 2014 9:04 pm
Not gonna happen. Floyd knows what mistakes he made last time and like him or not, he will correct those mistakes. Maidana will come forward swinging and make some rounds uncomfortable for Floyd but in the end it’s another points UD for FMJ.Posted August 26, 2014 8:49 pm

Maidana … I think you have been great for boxing. Great action fights. Great knockouts.
But Floyd Mayweather doesn’t need to prove he is a man to you or anyone else.
Floyd Mayweather is a hall of fame fighter and maybe the best technical fighter in the history of the sport and maybe a top ten all time great pound for pound fighter in the history of the sport.
Floyd can fight you anyway he wants to fight you … and your job is to try to beat him.
Shut up and fight.Posted August 26, 2014 7:27 pm
