Floyd Mayweather will make light work of Maidana in rematch

Published Add your comment

Tonight, Floyd 'Money' Mayweather will look to extend his incredible unbeaten streak in a rematch with the rugged Argentine Marcos Maidana.

Mayweather, 37, currently holds a record of 46 and 0 and has proven himself to be the pound for pound king by beating every man he has been in the ring with.

He is able to adapt to whatever style is in front of him and get the job done in emphatic fashion.

Last time out Mayweather was tested more than we have seen in years and as a result many felt that Maidana had earned another shot at glory.

Maidana's rough house tactics had success in the early rounds but Mayweather adapted and began to pick off a tiring Maidana.

Differing opinion

Following the final bell it seemed in my mind that Mayweather had won relatively comfortably but on social media many believed that Maidana had won. I have re-watched the fight several times and still come to the same conclusion.

Maidana's relentless attack in the early rounds did have success but he failed to land a lot of the punches he threw and Mayweather landed the much cleaner work in the second half of the fight.

Coming into this rematch, Maidana will now know that he can have some success against Mayweather and that will make him very confident of more success in this fight.

Mayweather in contrast will be determined to prove the doubters wrong and show that he is far too good for Maidana.

He didn't move around the ring as much as he has done in previous fights and choose to stand and trade at times. It is likely that there will be less of this in this rematch and that he will stick to his boxing skills on the outside.

I expect Mayweather to come out and outclass his man, but there are still some who believe that Maidana has he style to beat the 37-year-old.

Mayweather slowing down

Some believe that the last fight was a sign that Mayweather is starting to slow down and that maybe now is the time for someone to take advantage and dethrone Mayweather.

I do not share such sentiments, as this is a man who only last year absolutely dominated the rising superstar Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez. Mayweather proved far too much for the young Mexican and I believe he will do so again tonight against Maidana.

Tonight we should expect a good fight but one in which Mayweather just proves how good he is again. The fight is more than likely to go the distance, but if it doesn't, than the hard hitting Maidana would seem the favourite to claim the win.

Mayweather is close to retirment

Mayweather looks set to retire this time next year, so it is time to enjoy his sublime boxing class whilst he is still around. He receives a huge amount of criticism but when he is gone he will be missed as he brings more than just skill to boxing, but a whole hype and spectacle to the sport as well. 

He has revolutionised many aspects of the sport, and he has shown that it is fighters and not promoters that have the power at the top of the sport.
