Maidana rudely shoves Mayweather during stare down

Marcos Maidana (35-4, 31 KOs) lost his cool on Tuesday during a stare down with WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr (46-0, 26 KOs) by twice shoving him hard when the two of them came face to face during their press event for Mayhem on PPV at six flags Fiesta Texas.

Mayweather seemed genuinely shocked at being shoved by Maidana, and then gave him an even bigger shove that drove Maidana clear across the stage. Maidana came back and shoved Mayweather a final time as if to even the score. While some people will no doubt this this was a staged event, it didn’t look that way to me.

Mayweather looked angry that Maidana chose to bully him on stage by shoving him hard when he was just trying to do a simple stare down with the Argentinian fighter. For whatever reason Maidana didn’t look like he wanted any part of Mayweather crowding him.
