Mayweather backed up his talk after agreeing to face Maidana in a rematch – fulfilling his promise to give his worthy challenger another chance to prove his worth.
Maidana gave Mayweather arguably the toughest fight of his career in their first showdown, putting a lot of pressure on the unbeaten champion’s shoulder for the entire fight to delight of those who were able to get Mayweather vs Maidana tickets in May.
The 31-year-old Argentine looked poise to hand Mayweather the first loss of his boxing career, but the reigning pound-for-pound king managed to solve Maidana’s puzzle in time, enough to escape with a majority decision win to become the unified WBC and WBA welterweight champion.
While most boxing experts were impressed with Maidana’s performance in their first fight, Mayweather is not worried heading into the second fight.
And in fact, the Grand Rapids native is not planning to make any adjustment for their second showdown, saying that the burden is on Maidana’s camp because they lost in the first fight.
Things are already heating up as the two fighters have been trading barbs since the rematch was announced with both accusing each other of using dirty tactics.
Mayweather, who will put his unblemished 46-0 record and welterweight titles on the line, said that Maidana knows that he has no chance to win and the reason why he took the rematch offer is because they know that they will get another big paycheck – an amount that they won’t get from facing other fighters in the division.
On the other hand, Maidana vowed to shut Mayweather’s mouth and insisted that will just let his fist do the talking on fight night. The Buenos Aires, Argentina native said that he will let his opponent pay for being disrespectful.
Indeed, bad blood is already brewing between the two fighters, which makes the rematch more exciting to watch. Fans can now get Maidana vs Mayweather tickets to watch history as it unfolds.
Mayweather-Maidana II — dubbed “Mayhem” — will go down Sept. 13 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and headline a Showtime PPV card, the fourth bout of Mayweather’s six-fight deal with Showtime/CBS.
