Some boxing fans think because he upset Broner, Maidana has a puncher's chance against Floyd and they're right in that he could get lucky. They like those 14-1 odds. Or have they come down to 10-1 by now?
. . . . . . Most who follow the sweet science feel Floyd will dance around Maidana like he did v Guerrero and Canelo punching them in the face occasionaly sometimes even with combinations but generally staying out of harms way. Madana is a little like Guerrero and another Argentine boxer Floyd toyed with, Carlos Baldomir.
. . . . . . .I have a feeling though that this fight is going to be more of a battle and Floyd will get an impressive stoppage. Maidana punches wide and I see Floyd taking advantage of it. I know Maidana has improved under Robert Gracia. Has he improved enough? Paulie says Floyd is great and it doesn't matter who he fights and that Maidana is roughly = to Pacquiao. Paulie is a perceptive broadcaster but he's got the Pac Maidana comparrison wrong.
. . . . To me (and please tell me where I'm wrong) Maidana is more like Angulo. He's slow, throws wide, hits hard but leaves himself wide open. Even Josesito Lopez hit him a number of times cleanly . Maidana has hit the canvas several times including 3 v Ortiz.
. . . . . . If I assigned Pac a value of 100 and Angulo a value of 0 I'd say Maidana's talent and skillset is about a 28. Anyway, Floyd by stoppage about the 10 th round
