Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana Undercard: After weeks of speculation, including feedback from fans across an array of social media platforms, boxing’s pound-for-pound superstar, pay-per-view king and WBC Welterweight World Champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather will face the dangerous, power-punching WBA Welterweight World Champion Marcos “El Chino” Maidana on Saturday, SEP 13, live on SHOWTIME PPV.
Mayweather vs. Maidana, a 12-round world championship unification bout for Mayweather and Maidana’s respective 147-pound titles, is promoted by Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions. The event will be produced and distributed live by SHOWTIME PPV and is the third fight of a lucrative six-fight deal with Showtime Networks Inc. Mayweather vs. Maidana will pit the brilliance of Mayweather against the power of the Argentine slugger. Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs), undeniably the sport’s No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter and a 10-time world champion, is coming off of a spectacular 2013 in which he continued to display his ring prowess with dominating victories over Robert Guerrero and Canelo Alvarez. In Maidana, Mayweather is arguably facing the most demanding and troublesome opponent of his heralded, 17-year Hall Of Fame career.
“Marcos Maidana’s last performance immediately brought him to my attention,” said Mayweather, who celebrates his 37th birthday today. “He is an extremely skilled fighter who brings knockout danger to the ring. I think this is a great fight for me and he deserves the opportunity to see if he can do what 45 others have tried to do before him – beat me.” Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs), of Margarita, Santa Fe, Argentina, captured the attention of boxing and sports fans around the world with his thorough defeat of the highly regarded and undefeated Adrien Broner on Dec. 14, 2013. The 30-year-old impressively dominated Broner from the opening bell and registered two knockdowns against the three-time world champion. Maidana connected with a punishing 231 power punches in the bout en route to a unanimous decision by margins of 117-109, 115-109 and 115-110. The resounding victory over the heavily favored Broner was the fourth in a row for the crowd-pleasing, offensive-minded Maidana. A former WBA 140-pound world champion, Maidana’s hard-charging, aggressive style has earned him knockouts in 82 percent of his wins. The remarkable ratio of knockouts ties the late Diego Corrales and Jose Luis Castillo for the highest knockout percentage of any Mayweather opponent to date and is one of the highest of any current fighter at the world-class level.
Mayweather set in motion a flurry of online polls following a message posted to his Twitter and Instagram accounts (@floydmayweather) on Sunday, Feb. 2 asking fans to voice their opinion on his next opponent. Through the accumulation of more than 100,000 votes on the various online polls, more than 100,000 comments on Mayweather’s Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as nonstop fan Tweets, Mayweather saw an overwhelming majority favor Maidana. “In Marcos Maidana, Floyd Mayweather may be in for his toughest opponent ever,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “Maidana is the type of fighter who will find out if Floyd still belongs on top of the pound-for-pound list. He’s strong, tough and aggressive. He in giving Adrien Broner his first loss, he showed that he won’t be intimidated by talk, a big fight atmosphere or an unbeaten record. I give Floyd a lot of credit for stepping up to the plate and testing himself once again. He is a true warrior, and the fans will be the winners on SEP 13th.” “The first two events in our partnership with Floyd Mayweather were incredible and SHOWTIME PPV is proud to present the next chapter in Floyd’s remarkable career,” said Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President and General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports®. “Marcos Maidana is a boxer whose fearsome power can change the trajectory of a fight with a single punch. Couple that with his ferocity and perseverance and you have the recipe for an incredible fight on the grandest stage of the sport.”
Undefeated, Floyd “Money” Mayweather, (45-0, 26 KOs), a 10-time world champion in five weight divisions, reaffirmed his worldwide popularity when he faced then- undefeated boxing phenom Canelo Alvarez last September, The mega-event, which set the record as the highest grossing pay-per-view event in television history with over $150 million in revenue, showed once again that Mayweather’s drawing power is unlike any other, During Mayweather’s extraordinary career, he has amassed wins over numerous world champions, including Arturo Gatti, Zab Judah, Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Juan Manuel Marquez, Shane Mosley, Victor Ortiz, Miguel Cotto, Robert Guerrero and most recently Canelo, marking the 45th win, Over the course of his pay-per-view career Mayweather has generated more than 12.8 million buys and over $800 million in revenue, The Grand Rapids, Mich., native, who fights out of Las Vegas, averages more than one million pay-per-view buys per event, which is the highest pay-per-view buy average of any boxer in history, and is the only fighter to participate in two events which generated over 2 million pay-per-view buys each, In 2007, Mayweather co-headlined a pay-per-view event with De La Hoya which generated the largest number of PPV buys in history, Mayweather has also been listed by Sports Illustrated (2012, 2013) and Forbes (2012) as the world’s highest paid athlete in any sport.
Thirty-year-old, Marcos “El Chino” Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs), stunned the boxing world in December when he defeated up-and-coming superstar Adrien Broner with an unforgettable performance, Hailing from Margarita, Santa Fe, Argentina, Maidana first emerged on the world scene in 2009, when he won the interim WBA Junior Welterweight World Championship with a stunning sixth-round technical knockout over Victor Ortiz, After three defenses of his title, Maidana lost a 2010 Fight of the Year candidate to Amir Khan, but he regained the belt with another classic against future Hall of Famer Erik Morales in 2011, In 2012, Maidana joined forces with renowned trainer Robert Garcia (2012 Trainer of the Year), and has since gone undefeated at 4-0 with 3 knockouts.
floyd-mayweather-vs-marcos-maidana-game-of-foes, You just get the feeling that this is going to be medieval. Tactical for sure, that’s a given with one of the combatants being Floyd Mayweather, the WBC welterweight champion and consensus #1 rated boxer on earth. In accepting a declaration of war from WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana, the mighty Argentinean who just might have “Hercules” somewhere in the family tree, Floyd will put this mythical distinction to test. If you follow that show, then you know that it weaves complexities in scintillating fashion. Taking us through a labyrinth of lies, betrayal, countermoves and innuendo, the stars – or would be Kings – of boxing’s most glamorous division, will vie for that most coveted crown of undisputed supremacy, in a way not unlike the show. This fight, which will take place after Manny Pacquiao faces Timothy Bradley in an attempt to reclaim his WBO welterweight crown, will go a long way in determining who wears “the ultimate crown”. I believe Pacquiao will defeat Bradley, thus setting the stage for what some would consider an anticlimactic battle between Mayweather and Pacquiao. Thus, Mayweather vs. Maidana, is almost a penultimate dual for a riveting season finale. But since our fight drama is replete with plot twists and dimensions of intrigue, something is going to happen along the way to remind us why we watch, for nothing is ever promised. Especially Kings or their crowns.
Sitting somewhere in the upper northern reaches in his own realm of fire and ice, is “Prince of Fantasy” and emeritus king of deposed pound-for-pound pipe dreams, Amir Khan. Floyd Mayweather knew he couldn’t challenge the UK’s mercurial and talented wonder. Having faced Maidana in a dark encounter, Khan may try to divulge his gameplan to Maidana, who’ll reveal to Amir that he doesn’t care, like- at all, while wearing a curious”WTF?” look on his face combined with whatever one you wear when somebody farts… Maidana be like: “GTFOH Rook!” The prospect of this war is not something Floyd wanted, and I am convinced of that. It is why he took so long to announce a fight he had no choice but to take. Maidana will have no fear of him and absolutely attack him with fury. He is a far better fighter than the edition prior to Robert Garcia. He features a bludgeoning arsenal, particularly, an over-the-top overhand right that could be catastrophic to Floyd’s unblemished record in warfare. That said, there will be noticeable differences between “Lame of Clone” Adrien Broner and Floyd Mayweather. You will not be seeing “Money” Mayweather – for this fight will feature “Pretty Boy” Floyd. Maidana up next for Mayweather
Said Leonard Ellerbe, chief executive of Mayweather Promotions, “This is an extremely dangerous fight for Floyd as Marcos Maidana is a technical knockout artist and continues to show us that he gets better with each fight. Maidana showed so much in his last performance, he’s clearly at the top of his game and a great matchup for Floyd.” Since a lopsided 10-round decision loss to Alexander in February 2012, Maidana has won four fights in a row, three by knockout, to put himself in position to get Mayweather, whom he has wanted to fight — like every other fighter between 140 and 154 pounds. He has the power to hurt Mayweather, but Mayweather’s speed and defense could be big problems for him. “Maidana is like the Energizer Bunny — he keeps coming and coming and you can’t stop him,” Schaefer said. “Since he added Robert Garcia as his trainer, he has been even sharper.” A few weeks ago, Mayweather unveiled a poll on social media for fans to vote on his next opponent, Maidana or Khan. Although Khan won Mayweather’s poll (57 percent to 43 percent), many other outlets conducted their own polls, including ESPN.com, and Maidana was the lopsided choice.
“No response from Mayweather or his team,” Khan tweeted. “Fights not happening. I should of taken the title fight last December against Alexander. Very disrespected by [Mayweather's] team. Wasted my time. Good luck to Maidana against Mayweather. Can I apologize to the thousands of people who are let down. You me and everyone wanted the Mayweather fight. He’s running scared.” After Maidana defeated Broner, Broner had a contractual option for a rematch, which he exercised. However, powerful adviser Al Haymon, who works with Mayweather, Maidana and Broner, worked things out so Mayweather could face the opponent of his choice. “What it took was conversations with all the parties and, in the end, all the parties were happy with the outcome,” Schaefer said. “Adrien will certainly have another big fight ahead of him, but the situation [with the Maidana-Broner rematch] was worked out among the involved parties. Adrien wasn’t really jumping up and down about it, but it was explained to him and worked out. I have to thank Al for making it happen.”
ESPN boxing writer Dan Rafael breaks down Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s next fight against Marcos Maidana.Tags: Floyd Maywather, Marcos Maidana, Dan Rafael Floyd Mayweather Jr. gave himself a 37th birthday present on Monday: an opponent. The pound-for-pound king announced on Twitter that he will next fight fellow welterweight titleholder Marcos Maidana on May 3. The 147-pound unification fight will be carried by Showtime PPV and take place at a venue to be determined — either in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand, the front-runner, where Mayweather has had his last eight fights, or the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., which came into the picture in recent weeks and is making a strong push for the fight. Golden Boy Promotions chief executive Richard Schaefer, who has worked with Mayweather since 2007 and also promotes Maidana, told ESPN.com that he hopes to have the venue locked in “in the next couple of days along with the ticket information.” The fight will be the third of a 30-month, six-fight deal worth $200 million-plus that Mayweather signed with Showtime and parent network CBS last February. Mayweather has said he plans to retire at the conclusion of the contract. Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs) holds world titles at junior middleweight and welterweight but will return to welterweight to make his second defense when he faces Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs), a 30-year-old crowd-pleasing slugger from Argentina who will be making the first defense of his belt. Maidana, who landed the fight over fellow former junior welterweight titlist Amir Khan, won his world title in dramatic upset fashion by scoring two knockdowns in a unanimous decision against Adrien Broner in their Dec. 14 brawl at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

I think this is a great fight for me and he deserves the opportunity to see if he can do what 45 others have tried to do before him — beat me.” Said Maidana, “I am extremely happy to be facing Floyd Mayweather because it will give me the opportunity to show the world that I am the best welterweight in the division. I just handed a great defensive fighter his first loss and I plan to do the same to Mayweather. I don’t care whether he’s the best and undefeated. I will bring some real Latino power to him on May 3rd.”
In his last fight, Mayweather easily outpointed Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on Sept. 14 to unify junior middleweight titles in a fight that set numerous records, including the biggest pay-per-view gross in history ($150 million) and biggest live gate ($20 million). The bout sold 2.2 million pay-per-view units, second-most all time behind the near 2.5 million subscriptions sold for Mayweather’s 2007 showdown with Oscar De La Hoya. The May 3 fight does not figure to come close to that sort of business because Maidana is not nearly as popular as Alvarez and will be an even bigger underdog. But Maidana, one of the best punchers in boxing, does possess fight-changing power. “Marcos Maidana is, without question, one of the most exciting fighters in the sport,” Schaefer said. “He is must-see TV and one of those guys who people keep asking me, ‘When is he fighting again?’ because you know he is never in a boring fight. What we’re going to see May 3 is two game-changers in action. Floyd Mayweather is the game-changer. He has the biggest pay-per-views and the biggest fights. He’s changed the game. Marcos Maidana has the game-changer in his punch, in his fists. With one punch he can change the game of boxing. “Mayweather is undefeated but with that one punch, Marcos Maidana can certainly change it all for Floyd. Floyd has to fight the perfect fight. Is he capable of doing that? Of course. But can Maidana connect for that one moment? Yes, of course. We saw it in the Broner fight. How is Floyd going to react once he gets hit by Maidana?”
Maidana got the nod as Mayweather’s opponent over England’s Khan, who barely edged Maidana in a 2010 junior welterweight title fight. Khan was so sure that he was going to get the fight that he pulled out of negotiations for a welterweight title fight with then-titleholder Devon Alexander in December. But without a world title or an impressive performance in the past few years, combined with Maidana’s eye-opening victory against previously undefeated Broner — Mayweather’s buddy — Khan’s chances of landing the fight were doomed. “Maidana has been in a lot of exciting fights and then he had the fight with Broner and there was a lot of fan reaction,” Schaefer said. “So I think the fans had something to do with Floyd’s decision. People want to see that fight. Maidana is a 147-pound champion, Floyd is a champion. A lot of people believe if Maidana connects, it’s goodnight Floyd. But the question is can he connect?” Boxing, 2014, Live, Watch Maidana vs Mayweather Live fiGht, Free, live stream, online, full watch tv online, HBO Pay-per-view, WBO, MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada, US, USA, Mayweather Next Fight:, Watch Maidana To Fight vs Mayweather In May 2014, Floyd Mayweather vs. Marcos Maidana: Live 2014 Tickets , Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana Live, | 2014 |, Floyd Mayweather vs. Marcos Maidana Free Live, Mayweather News, Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana, Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana Live Streaming [Updated] 2014, Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana Live Stream, SportsNation: Mayweather vs. Maidana, SportsNation, Mayweather, vs., Maidana,
