Floyd Mayweather receives Maidana warning

Published Add your comment

Marcos Maidana has warned Floyd Mayweather that he has come to Las Vegas to end his unbeaten record this weekend.

The 30-year-old, who recorded a surprise victory over Adrien Broner in December, is the firm underdog heading into Saturday’s big-money bout against the undefeated WBC welterweight champion.

He acknowledges that nobody expects him to record a victory that would send shockwaves across the world - but that doesn’t mean he lacks confidence in his own ability to spring another surprise.

“I know a lot of people think I’m going to lose this fight, but I came to win,” he told a crowd in Las Vegas. “I’m not afraid of anybody. I’m not afraid of anything.”

Mayweather, seven years older than Maidana, is the overwhelming favourite - and will have the backing of the entire crowd at the MGM Grand, where some of his most famous bouts have taken place in the past.

The pound-for-pound king enters the fight in tip-top condition - but can Maidana produce arguably the biggest shock in recent boxing history by recording a win?
