Floyd Mayweather Prepares for His Next Fight

Floyd Mayweather once again will be taking his fight to the ring in Las Vegas next week.  The five-division world champion takes on Marcos Maidana for the welterweight title unification.  Mayweather, who is 45-0 with 26 knockouts in the ring says, "I have not brought my best out yet," during his media day interview with reporters.


Widely considered the greatest boxer of his generation out of all the weight divisions, Mayweather faces down the WBA welterweight champion Maidana who is 35-3 with 31 knockouts.  The fight should produce more views on the pay-per-view channel than his previous bouts, as he climbs to his goal of reaching a perfect 50-0 record before retirement.


"Maidana deserves the opportunity," Mayweather told a group of reporters at his boxing club in Las Vegas. "He's a champion with an 80 percent knockout ratio."


"But everything isn't about speed. Everything in boxing and life is about timing. I'm a fighter that likes to take my time and be smart. Some fighters like to be reckless. You see what happens when fighters are reckless.


"Boxing is like chess. Every move has to be thought about before you make it. I like to study my opponents first. I'm not going to do a lot of moving when I get in the ring. I'm coming straight ahead."


Even though Maidana is known for his explosive punches that have knocked out 80% of the foes he has faced, Mayweather says he is prepared to go toe-to-toe against him on the May 3rd fight at the MGM Grand Arena.


Meanwhile, according to the Chicago Tribune, boxing promoter Bob Arum has been trying to build hype for an eventual fight against Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao by telling viewers not to purchase the event in a boycott attempt unless he agrees to a bout with him.


“Only thing we can do is pray for Bob Arum,” Mayweather said this week during media day to promote the 12-round fight against Maidana. “I don’t want to say nothing negative about Bob Arum. I wish Bob Arum nothing but the best. We’re doing what we’re doing over here.”


Fans will have to wait and see if the best defensive fighter of all time will be willing to try and set-up a super fight with Pacquiao after next week.  The fight has been derailed over the years due to losses that Pacquiao took in the ring against opponents, along with disputes on how to do drug testing for the bout.
