Floyd Mayweather Jr. turned 37 on the 24th of February and he has been kind enough to give us a gift of our own. Mayweather announced on twitter, that he with be fight Marcos Maidana on May 3, 2014. Mayweather (45-0, 26 knockouts), the world's number one pound-for-pound fighter and 10-time world champion, will risk his of the 147-pound World Boxing Council title, while Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs), of Argentina, will risk his World Boxing Association title.
Maidana surfaced as a prime contender for Mayweather, when he dominated Adrien Broner on Dec. 14, 2013. Mayweather told Fox Sports, “Marcos Maidana's last performance immediately brought him to my attention," Mayweather said in a statement. "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."
"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," said Marcos Maidana in a press release. Maidana believes he has a strong chance of beating Mayweather, especially after beating someone with a similar defensive style has Floyd.
Tickets for this bout should go on sale soon, once they figure out where they are going to fight. The Brooklyn’s Barclays Center are making a run to host the fight and will be looking to beat out Las Vegas’s MGM Grand, where Mayweather has hosted his last eight fights.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a veteran in the ring. He is considered the number one-pound for pound boxer for a reason. His quickness, great defense, and ability to adapt will set the pace to another victory for Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. Floyd is going to out box and out class Maidana, But Maidana’s desire to be the best can be dangerous for Mayweather, if he is not careful. The aggressive style of Maidana has earned him knockouts in 82 percent of his victories. Needless to say, May 3rd is going to be a great fight. But in the end, I believe Floyd is going to win by a unanimous decision.
