Scott Christ and Connor Ruebusch of Bad Left Hook preview the full pay-per-view card of this weekends boxing mega-event, The Moment: Mayweather vs. Maidana.

Bad Left Hook's Scott Christ and Connor Ruebusch give the complete rundown on this weekend's upcoming pay-per-view event.

This Saturday, May 3rd, the finest boxer alive defends his title once again. Floyd Mayweather Jr. looks for his 46th professional win over Marcos "El Chino" Maidana. Mayweather (45-0, 26 KO) has been on top of the boxing world for years, both as the sport's biggest earner and best practitioner. Maidana (35-3, 31 KO), for his part, has improved dramatically since beginning to train under Robert Garcia two years ago, and is riding a four-fight win streak going into this bout.

Featured on the undercard are two relevant bouts. Amir Khan squares off against Luis Collazo in an exciting relevant bout that could determine the next challenger for Mayweather, should he get past Maidana. Khan (28-3, 19 KO) is climbing back to the top of the boxing world after a tough knockout loss at the hands of Danny Garcia in 2012. Collazo (35-5, 18 KO) is a seasoned veteran in every way but age--at 33 he's still potentially in his prime, and looked better than ever in his last victory, a knockout win over Victor Ortiz.

Before that, Adrien Broner faces Carlos Molina at junior welterweight in what can only be called a comeback fight for Broner (27-1, 22 KO), who suffered the first loss of his career against Maidana in December. Molina (17-1-1, 7 KO) is coming off a loss himself, to Amir Khan.

The card opens with a super middleweight contest between The Money Team prospect J'Leon Love(17-0, 10 KO) and Marco Antonio Periban (20-1-1, 13 KO).
