Floyd Mayweather Jr

Left-Hook Lounge Mailbag: A Look Back at Mayweather vs Maidana, A Measurement of the ‘New’ Amir Khan, & a Look at the Same Old Adrien Broner!!!

Greg H. (Bronx, NYC): Going into the Maidana fight I thought Floyd Mayweather was in for an easy night, but I know you felt it would be tough from the beginning. What were your thoughts about both of their performance? And do you think a rematch is warranted? Vivek W. (ESB): From the moment this fight was signed, I felt we would get precisely the fight we saw at the end of the night. I was shocked [...]

Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Wins Battle With Marcos Maidana

Marcos Rene "El Chino" Maidana might not have been the best opponent Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Jr. has ever faced, but he certainly proved to be his toughest. Often times that is said about Maidana. His awkward style turns fights into armed conflicts. He throws buzz bombs, rockets, and mortar shots. His overhand right is the most fun to watch. It should be called an overhead right, because [...]

Professional Boxing: Theatre of the Unexpected

As this past Saturday nights "The Moment" boxing show SLOWLY fades into history, I couldn't help but notice how ironic the outcomes turned out to be. Redemption for a couple of main event fighters, upward mobility and the highest accolades for another. For the main guy, even though he won the fight (I scored it 115-113 for Mayweather), a lot of questions are being asked. Has Mayweather's defensive [...]

Debate rages on over Mayweather-Maidana result; De La Hoya says Mayweather should be 43-3 now!

The arguments continue, two days on from the unexpectedly great action fight, over who actually won on Saturday night in Las Vegas: Floyd Mayweather or Marcos Maidana. Reading what people have had to say on this particular web site, it’s clear the majority of fans feel Maidana - who lost by scores of 117-111 and 116-112 and was given a drawn verdict of 114-114 on the third official card - deserved [...]

Muhammad Ali wants Mayweather to fight Pacquiao

Much of boxing made a mistake underestimating the capability of the underdog champion to beat a pound-for-pound god. Floyd Mayweather Jr. must have realized he committed an equally big mistake handpicking the Argentine assault guru, Marcos Maidana. Heavy favorite Mayweather lost yesterday many times over and in ways more than one even though the bias opinions didn’t reflect the judgment and cards [...]

Mayweather Jr. vs. Maidana: Did Floyd really gift Maidana and the fans the toe-to-toe action?

It’s no secret that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a virtuoso when it comes to moving, defending, and making his opponent look inadequate. Sure he fights word class champions, and many of them are truly deserving of that opportunity, but aside from Castillo way back in the day, there has not been a challenger that made Floyd work harder than a routine sparring session. Yesterday, Marcos Maidana did just [...]

Maidana’s Moment

photo by NAOKI FUKUDA - Let’s get one thing straight about last night’s main event at the MGM Grand. Burt Clements, who scored 117-111 in favor of Mayweather, should be expelled from the sport. As Paulie Malignaggi pointed out in his post-fight comments, Clements must have been watching the fight unspool from a seat in the rafters. Or perhaps I’m being cruel and Clements is, in fact, legally [...]

September 2014: Mayweather-Maidana II? Mayweather-Khan? Or a vacation for Floyd?

Make no mistake about two things -1: Floyd Mayweather Junior was given his toughest, roughest fight in years last night as a relentless Marcos Maidana ploughed ahead pretty much all night and made the unbeaten superstar work very, very hard. 2: Mayweather won the fight by a wide margin. The fans in attendance at The MGM Grand, most of them vocal Maidana fans, felt the defending WBA welterweight [...]

Mayweather/Maidana: The ‘Mavinci’ Code

“Tonight is the night,” they said, “Maidana has the power,” they said. But once again, Floyd Mayweather showed in front of a full house in the MGM Grand Las Vegas, that he is miles ahead of any other boxer in the world. So far ahead in fact, even NASA cannot find him. His majority point’s decision last night may not have been as clinical and clear cut as his previous wins, but he proved [...]

Mayweather Seizes “THE MOMENT” But Not Without A Fight From Maidana

For a moment, it seemed like Marcos "El Chino" Maidana could do the unthinkable - hand pound-for-pound champion Floyd "Money" Mayweather the first loss of his brilliant career. Only for a moment. Mayweather, who is now the WBC and WBA Welterweight World Champion, prevailed with a hard-fought majority decision victory over Maidana in the main event on Saturday on SHOWTIME PPV in front of 16,268 [...]
