Mayweather and Maidana promise KO's, provide good sound bytes

Mike Stobe

The press tour for "Mayhem" has produced some entertaining moments, and now each fighter is promising their September 13 rematch won't go the distance.

As far as boxing goes, this might actually be the oldest trick in the book. In order to drum up some drama for their upcoming rematch, both Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana have promised to knock their opponent out.

The "Mayhem" press tour has delivered some excellent sound bytes so far. Mayweather made it clear he thinks Maidana is a dirty fighter, referencing what he perceived to be multiple low blows and Maidana's intention to "maim" him. Floyd then went after Maidana's trainer Robert Garcia yesterday, saying "He (Garcia) couldn't get the job done against Diego Corrales. I did." BURN!

Garcia retorted, "I retired thirteen years ago. But if I were to fight like a bitch I'd probably still be undefeated like you." Oh SNAP!

Maidana said on Tuesday that he knows he'll have to find a different gear to get a win. "This will be a different fight. I don't want to leave any doubt whatsoever. To beat a champion like Floyd, you have to knock him out."

For his part, Mayweather said he isn't content with a "120-108" decision. "We going for the knockout. Absolutely."

I wouldn't bet on either man finishing the other on September 13th. In fact, I see the rematch going just like the first fight. It appears the fighters know they need to convince folks like me otherwise.

The press tour continues tomorrow in Los Angeles.
