Marcos Maidana made major headlines a week ago when he upset Adrien Broner in San Antonio, and now the Argentine brawler wants to take a shot at boxing's pound-for-pound and dollar-for-dollar king, Floyd Mayweather.
"I'm going to rest and wait for someone to call me with a good fight and a good proposal. I haven't heard anything about a rematch [with Broner]. They said they want a rematch, but nothing has been said to me. ... I would like fight Mayweather, because he is the number one fighter. Nobody has beaten him and I want to see if I can do it."
Maidana (35-3, 31 KO) beat Broner (27-1, 22 KO) by unanimous decision, dropping him twice and keeping him from getting into any kind of rhythm. But Mayweather (45-0, 26 KO) is without question a different animal, a superior fighter in all ways.
Floyd's father and trainer doesn't see the fight being competitive:
"It's an easy fight, I'm telling you. It ain't no different than Khan. He's easy to hit, Broner hit him easy. Believe me, he is easily hit. He's a tough guy but there's too much speed, too much trickery, too much mind over power. I'm just telling you, I don't see no kind of way in that for him [to win]."
Do you see Maidana as a more competitive matchup for Floyd than Amir Khan would be? What Khan may lack in chin, he has what Maidana does not in speed. In other words, is this a better question: "Do you want to see Floyd potentially knock out Khan, or do you want to see him cruise to a shutout against Maidana?"
