Following the news that Floyd Mayweather Jr. has agreed a rematch with Marcos Maidana, GMS contributor Victor Tjörnevik looks at the possibility of the American superstar remaining undefeated for the remainder of his career.
Can anyone beat Floyd Mayweather?
No. At the moment he will win the remaining three fights and retire undefeated. But it should be said that the fight against Marcos Maidana was far closer than many people expected.
Maidana is the only opponent who has managed to hit Mayweather routinely during a bout (221 times). However the American adapted, won five of the last seven rounds and extended his winning streak.
What About Adrien Broner?
The Adrien Broner that fascinated people about two years ago now seems to be suffering from delusions of grandeur. Sure, he bounced back after the loss against Maidana, but there was hardly an impressive effort that the 24-year-old put in when he won the verdict against a clearly inferior opponent in Carlos Molina.
Broner wrestled down Molina in the third round and was given a strong warning. He has also taking the opportunity to challenge Manny Pacquiao - it's a match anyone would like to see.
Is Amir Khan a serious challenger?
Yes, he floored the experienced and dangerous man Luis Collazo three times in an overwhelming victory over twelve rounds. For once the British boxer fought a tactical fight. Collazo attempt to lower his hands and lure Khan in, but never succeeded.
What's next for these fighters?
Mayweather is fighting Marcos Maidana for a second time in May, a spot that Amir Khan says had been promised to him. Instead Khan is looking for a big name for his next fight.
Broner has not announced his next opponent, he might be focusing too much on his rap career at the moment. He will probably be on Mayweather's next undercard.
