Mayweather vs. Maidana

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

“Tonight is the night,” they said, “Maidana has the power,” they said.
