Marcos Maidana wants crack at Floyd Mayweather, Floyd Sr believes it's an easy fight

Coming off of his biggest career win, Marcos Maidana wants to face Floyd Mayweather, but Floyd's father believes it's a no-win situation for the Argentine slugger.

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?"
