Well it's official, Floyd Mayweather has picked his opponent for his May 3rd bout and it is against Marcos Maidana. Floyd Mayweather is the biggest star in all of boxing and he decides who he would fight. The top 2 choices for the Mayweather fight was Amir Khan and Marcos Maidana. Amir Khan had ducked out his December bout against Devon Alexander because he thought that he was in the drivers seat in the Mayweather sweepstakes. The only thing Khan brought to the table that would get peoples attention is the possible money from the UK that he would bring in and his hand speed but other than that he didn't have much to offer.
Marcos Maidana's last fight was an upset of the year fight and at the same time one of the best fights of the year by beating Adrien Broner. Maidana will surely be one to give Mayweather his toughest fight since fighting Miguel Cotto. Maidana will come forward and give non stop pressure like he did against Broner.
There really isn't much to complain about Floyd's decision because he picked the right person. I would like for him to fight Paulie Malignaggi but that is just me. Mayweather is his own boss he runs the show on his terms and everyone follows. Lets see if Maidana has the blueprint to beat Mayweather.
