Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced via his Twitter account Monday that he will be fighting Marcos Maidana next, which goes against his word.
Back on Feb. 3, Mayweather said on Twitter that he would be holding a poll where fans could vote on his next opponent. Mayweather touted the poll by saying he would “let the fans decide”:

That seemed to be a bunch of hooey because Mayweather is not the kind of person who lets anyone dictate his business. Sure enough, he was full of crap.
Khan won the poll by nearly 5,000 votes, but Mayweather still announced he would be fighting Maidana:
Madiana and Mayweather are scheduled to meet on May 3, which is a typical weekend for Floyd to fight. They will likely fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, which is where Floyd always fights.
I’m not at all surprised that Floyd chose Maidana considering he’s the better opponent. I’m actually more excited about this fight than a Floyd-Khan bout. I just wanted to post this to remind you that Floyd is full of crap and that you shouldn’t fall for his social media gimmicks (you know, like when he tells you how much money he won on sports bets without sharing how much he’s lost).
