Poll: Should Floyd Mayweather rematch Marcos Maidana or move on to a new challenge?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana battled in a rugged fight last night, and a rematch is getting a lot of hype. But should that be Floyd's next fight?

Last night in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather faced one of the stiffest challenges of his career, and his toughest fight in a good while, as Marcos Maidana took him to the limit and pushed him both physically and mentally, with Mayweather ultimately winning a majority decision.

Mayweather (46-0, 26 KO) said last night before the fight that the bout would not be his last, though he'd hinted at thinking of retirement in the build-up to the fight, and said after the fight that he plans to return in September, fighting on the same schedule he did in 2013.

It also sounded like a rematch with Maidana (35-4, 31 KO) is the most likely fight, as Amir Khan is not fighting in September due to Ramadan, and there may be enough demand and interest in a Maidana rematch to force that the next time out, along with a fairly shallow pool of other potential foes.

But should that be the fight, or would you rather see Floyd move on and face someone like Keith Thurman or Shawn Porter? Porter is not as likely as Thurman, in theory, because Porter is due up in July against Kell Brook, or he'd have to give up his IBF title. Thurman, meanwhile, is a top-ranked WBA contender, and has created some buzz as a rising star.

Should it be Mayweather-Maidana II, Mayweather-Thurman, or Mayweather-someone else?
