With no fights on the horizon as of yet. Argentina bad boy, Marcos “El Chino” Maidana (29-2, 27 KO’s) stated today on Fight news.com that he wanted a piece of Floyd Mayweather (41-0, 25 KO’s). Maidana is a top tier light welterweight who lost a close battle with Amir Khan last December. Maidana’s other loss came to Andriy Kotelnik in early 2009, a fight that could of gone either way. Marcos even called Mayweather a “loud mouth” and “arrogant”.
Will these taunts get Marcos the big “Money” fight or he is just letting it be known he will fight anyone? Whatever the case maybe, Marcos is a strong pressure fighter with a solid chin. Mayweather vs. Maidana could be an interesting match-up between brawler and boxer. Maidana doesn’t think moving up to welterweight will be a problem. He even insisted that if Mosley can stagger Mayweather, then he will knock him out.
The reality is Floyd has bigger fish to fry. It’s also being rumored that Maidana could face the loser of tomorrow nights clash between Devon Alexander and Timothy Bradley on HBO this summer. You have to give credit to Maidana for at least trying to lure Mayweather into a fight.
