Good, bad, or indifferent whether you like him or not the man at the Top of the Food Chain, and the King of the Jungle is Floyd “Money” Mayweather let’s not get it twisted or confused. The lottery ticket has been played by Marcos Maidana, and we will see if he can cash it in on May 3rd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas Nevada. Maidana is coming off a huge win over the self proclaimed little brother of Floyd Mayweather Adrien Broner. There is no denying the fact that there was a lot of excitement in San Antonio in the building that night for the Maidana vs Broner fight. Therefore why not chose Maidana, and capitalize off of the built in story line “the vengeance of the loss by his little brother” like an old school karate flick.
The arduous technique of Maidana will be tested by the mastery status and flair of Mayweather. Mayweather’s drive, natural aptitude, and inherent tendency are something Maidana is going to have to deal with. However, some will say the willing to go all out kamikaze mission approach of Maidana is what he needs to make it rough. The always poker faced Maidana seems unruffled by any stage, but there is no doubt whatsoever that this is the most monumental platform for a prize fighter and in sports period. Boxing is one on one with no timeouts to call, or any teammates to depend on. In both corners we have excellent trainers though. In the ear of Mayweather will be his uncle former welterweight champ Roger Mayweather, and for Maidana is also a former fighter and Trainer of the Year for 2012 Robert Garcia.
The thirty year old Argentinian Marcos Maidana (35-3 31 kos) has a tremendous left hook and power in both hands, but he will have an uphill climb trying to find the slick and polished ten time world champion Mayweather. Marcos Maidana has beaten some pretty good fighters in his career. Check out this list Adrien Broner, Josesito Lopez, Jesus Soto Karass, Erik Morales, “Chop Chop” Corley, Victor Manuel Cayo, and Victor Ortiz. Floyd Mayweather (45-0 26 kos) is the most dominating, accurate, and efficient fighter of this generation and that is not including his well paced stamina which is the best I have ever witnessed. In his seventeen year career his endurance is overlooked to casual fans.
His instincts are usually miles ahead of his opponents. The question I ask is when these two styles clash is Marcos Maidana a big enough puncher for Floyd to avoid and simply outbox him from the outside? Or, has the thirty seven year old Mayweather been in the square with bigger men with more crack on their punches which will allow him to stand foot to foot with Maidana, and scrap it out in the middle of the ring? That’s why we watch.
Tune in May 3rd on Showtime pay per view and watch the 12.8 million pay per view total in sales kingpin put on another gigantic event on the Las Vegas strip like so many other immensely popular entertainers have. When you have generated over $800 million in revenue it is pretty safe to say that Floyd Mayweather sells subscriptions to Showtime for overall programming not just fights. That is why Floyd Mayweather is at the Top of the Food Chain. Check out Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana on May 3rd.
