MAYWEATHER OBVIOUSLY WANTS MAIDANA

maidana vs mayweather

If you read between the lines of the Mayweather vs Khan/Maidana decision,you can see that Floyd is looking to get in the ring with Marcos Maidana rather than Amir Khan.Considering that Amir Khan has signed the contract to fight Mayweather weeks ago but the fight still is not official makes that clear.And it’s not that Mayweather doesn’t want to fight Khan at some point,but right now he sees Maidana as the more beatable opponent of the two.Whoever Mayweather picks I still think he will beat either fighter and maybe easily at that.But look at what each opponent brings to the table.

Khan has been the favorite to get the fight based on his huge U.K fan base and overall worldwide recognition in the boxing world.Whether you believe he deserves the Mayweather fight or not,you cannot deny that he most likely brings the most money to the table aside from Manny Pacquiao.Even bigger fighters that have said they would go down in weight like GGG,Sergio Martinez and Andre Ward would not bring in the same money as Khan simply because the British fans will buy this PPV and travel here to see it as well.Khan also brings a different attack that might,at the very least, add some much needed drama to a Mayweather fight.How many more times can we sit and watch for  twelve rounds as Mayweather plays matador against a slower,stronger opponent.Mayweather picks guys like Cotto,Canelo and Robert Guerro apart and we have yet to see one of them hurt Mayweather in any significant way.Maidana falls into that same opponent category.Khan is as fast ,if not faster than Mayweather and has excellent footwork and a high workrate each round that will test Floyd.Yes, Mayweather might tag him coming in all night like he always does but at least the possibility is there for an interesting fight.

On the other hand Marcos Maidana is one of the easiest fighters to hit.That is how he got his reputation for being in and winning wars.He goes toe to toe and usually gets the upper hand based on his superior power.But what good is that against Mayweather.Floyd won’t go toe to toe with him.Instead he will pick him apart and avoid any and all big shots from Maidana.Forget what Maidana did to Broner.Broner tries to act like Mayweather but he has slow footwork and can’t land anything without setting up.Broner has no choice but to go toe to toe at times just so he can land some of his own punches with authority.Does anyone think that those wide,sloppy punches Maidana was throwing and landing on Broner will come anywhere near landing on Mayweather?

Mayweather sees that Maidana is the hot name right now and that he is a much easier opponent than Amir Khan and that’s why he has opened up a vote for the fans to choose between Maidana and Khan.He knows Maidana will win and by that happening he also wins.Plus he gets his buddy Adrien Broner off the hook for the rematch..for now anyway.

MALIGNAGGI SHOULD BE ON MAYWEATHER’S OPPONENT LIST

Floyd Mayweather has made it known that he is considering facing either Marcos Maidana or Amir Khan in May,2014.He has also made a mockery of a Manny Pacquiao fight the last few months but we knew the chance of that fight happened was zilch.Golden Boy is already giving possible dates for the rematch between Maidana and Adrien Broner after Broner accepted the rematch clause in the first fights contract.So you know that fight will happen for sure unless Maidana drops the WBA belt to get in the ring with Mayweather.Most likely Mayweather won’t stand in the way of Broner fighting Maidana so most believe that leaves one viable option for Mayweather’s next opponent…Amir Khan.While it seems like a Khan vs Mayweather fight is undeniable simply because of the U.K. money that it would bring in,there is one other opponent that Mayweather should seriously look into facing in 2014 and that would be Paulie Malignaggi.

Malignaggi has been on a serious roll since moving up to welterweight after his loss to Amir Khan in May 2010.He has won 6 of 7 since then with his only loss coming in a very disputable split decision loss to Broner where he outworked Broner all night but still was on the short end of some sketchy judges.Two of the more impressive fights on this run,Malignaggi has beaten Senchenko in the Ukraine for his WBA title and totally dominated Zab Judah last month to stamp his case for an even bigger fight.One of the reasons besides money that Khan is being considered as an opponent for Mayweather is that he brings a different type of attack.One that includes speed,footwork and a high workrate each round.Fans are tired of seeing Mayweather totally outclass the bigger,stronger but much slower opponent like Cotto,Canelo and Victor Ortiz to name a few.Malignaggi,like Khan has speed,excellent footwork and ring generalship.He can go toe to toe in the thinking aspect of the fight with Floyd which is where Mayweather totally dominates his opponents.Malignaggi might not have big power but power did not help Canelo in his fight with Mayweather.It never does.The only way to beat Mayweather is to outwork him and try and win a decision.When Malignaggi is on he can outwork anyone in the ring and win alot of rounds.This could be why he has never been chosen for a Mayweather fight.He is more competition to Mayweather than alot of people would like to admit.

The other reason Malignaggi vs Mayweather makes sense is Malignaggi is one of the best promoters of an upcoming fight out there.He simply sells tickets,makes headlines and gets ratings.His fight against Broner in June 2013 was one of the highest ratings Showtime boxing received all year.This fight could be promoted into a good PPV number.Even if Khan is picked for the May opponent for Mayweather,Malignaggi will have to be a serious option for Mayweather’s fall opponent.Especially if Broner beats Maidana which is a huge if after the first fight.Who else is there at this point to face Mayweather.The only other name mentioned  is Danny Garcia and while he is an excellent opponent,at this point he just wouldn’t sell alot of PPV’S.I believe we will see Mayweather vs Malignaggi within a year.

FLOYD MAYWEATHER VS AMIR KHAN

mayweather vs khan

MAYWEATHER VS KHAN

As the world awaits the next opponent for Floyd Mayweather, all speculation is on the possibility of Amir Khan being chosen.Even though Bernard Hopkins has tried to steal the next Mayweather fight,clearer heads should prevail and nix that nonsense fight.So get used to listening to the boxing world whine,kick and cry until next May when they hit the PPV anyway to order Floyd Mayweather vs Amir Khan.

No one is saying Amir Khan is the only opponent that is an option for Mayweather’s next opponent.But when your options are Amir Khan,Danny Garcia and a long list of boxers who have roadblocks a mile high in front of them preventing a matchup,Mayweather has little choice but to choose Khan.Danny Garcia would be an OK fight but he is just becoming popular among the casual boxing fans.A fight between Garcia and Mayweather would resemble Robert Guerrero vs Mayweather.A slower,younger opponent getting beat over twelve rounds and bringing in low PPV numbers.They won’t choose Danny until maybe next year if Garcia has another two big names on his resume.Forget Manny Pacquiao as long as he is with Bob Arum.Not even worth discussing that fight any more.Sergio Martinez is too big for Mayweather and won’t go down in weight far enough to lure Mayweather into a catch weight agreement.Canelo Alvarez would have been an easy option for a rematch except he was picked apart by Mayweather and nothing would change if they met again.As time goes on, Canelo vs Mayweather will go down as one of the most disappointing fights ever.Provodnikov and Juan Manuel Marquez seem like longshots considering they aren’t even in the discussion and they fight on HBO.One fighter that could give Mayweather alot of problems is Timothy Bradley but he sold off  any chance of  a Mayweather fight by signing with Top Rank so he could get a Manny Pacquiao showdown.Bradley would for sure have gotten a Mayweather fight by now had he signed with Golden Boy.Adrien Broner’s luster has worn off  since Paulie Malignaggi exposed him as being a cheap imitation of Mayweather last June.Interest in a Mayweather vs Broner fight is gone.Malignaggi would be a good option for Mayweather but he would have to beat Judah and grab a title to get a chance at Mayweather.So right now as we speak,who is ready to face Mayweather next May? The answer is Amir Khan.

Khan brings three things to the table that make him a top pick for Mayweather.First,he has a  huge,loyal fan base that will travel to Las Vegas if it’s held there and  they will flood the PPV buys from overseas.Second,Khan has a different style to throw at Floyd because fans are tired of watching Mayweather play matador to slower,stronger fighters like Miguel Cotto and Saul Alvarez.Khan’s speed and footwork would add a different element to a Mayweather fight.Third,Khan offers the possibility of Mayweather finally fighting at Wembley Stadium which he has expressed interest in for a while now.Mayweather vs Khan in England at Wembley stadium would be a spectacle that everyone would tune in to see regardless if they thought Khan had a chance of winning.Khan would sell the most tickets and the most PPV’S out of the available options.

What if Amir Khan loses again???

December 15 will either be the day Amir Khan gets back on track or pretty much damages his career beyond repair.His opponebt Carlos Molina is a 135 pounder moving up and he has little power with much less speed and skill than Khan.Golden Boy is not stupid,they picked an opponent Khan should beat easily and look good doing it.

 Carlos Molina won’t have a chance in this fight.As much as I think Khan is beatable by anyone decent at this point,I don’t think this is the fight he loses again.Khan has too much going in his favor.First the opponent picked is someone Khan should beat due to his size,speed and strength.Second Khan with his new trainer Virgil Hunter will be more focused than he has been in recent fights to prove he is better than his last 2 fights.I’m sure Hunter has gotten the idea out of Khan’s head that he somehow is on a collision course with Floyd Mayweather which is something Freddie Roach couldn’t do.The proof is that we no longer see stories and interviews from Khan about Mayweather anymore.Reality has set in that anyone with 2 straight losses is nowhere on Floyd’s radar period.Even Pacquiao is off Mayweather’s radar now after a gift win over Marquez,a loss to Bradley and maybe another loss in the makings if Marquez can beat him in the judges eyes finally.Amir Khan will beat Molina by TKO I believe maybe around the 7th or 8th round.Then we will see if Khan’s head swells up again and starts calling out Mayweather again.I bet he does!!
