Floyd Mayweather chooses Marcos Maidana even though Amir Khan won poll

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).

Adrien Broner, Marcos Maidana will rematch; fight likely for April

Adrien Broner gold grill

Just on Wednesday Adrien Broner was tweeting about his desire to fight Marcos Maidana again after suffering his only career loss to the Argentine last month. Well it sounds like he will get his wish.

According to ESPN boxing reporter Dan Rafael, Broner has picked up his option for a rematch with Maidana. Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer told Rafael the rematch is likely to happen in April and air on Showtime.

Schaefer says the fight will likely take place on April 19 or 26 at either the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., or the Alamadome in San Antonio, which was the site of the December fight between the men.

Maidana, who is 35-3 with 31 KOs in his career, dropped Broner twice in their fight and won by unanimous decision.

One other note about this rematch taking place in April is that likely means Floyd Mayweather will end up facing Amir Khan in May. Because of his big win over Broner and overall knockout power, Maidana was considered a candidate to face Floyd, but this takes him out of the running.

We like Maidana to win the rematch as well.

Adrien Broner only wants to fight Marcos Maidana next

Adrien Broner meme

Adrien Broner was totally embarrassed in his loss to Marcos Maidana last month, but at least he’s taking the right attitude going forward.

Broner was knocked down twice in the fight and lost by unanimous decision for his first career defeat. Now 27-1, Broner says the only fight he wants next is a rematch with Maidana. Check out the tweets he sent on Wednesday:

Maidana indicated after the fight that he would be open to a rematch, so it’s quite possible that we see one. But will Broner make good on his word? Will the rematch work out differently? I have my doubts. Broner looked grossly outclassed by Maidana in that fight.

Adrien Broner flops after headbutt from Marcos Maidana (Video)

From humping his opponent in the ring to getting knocked down twice and losing, Adrien Broner had many embarrassing moments in his unanimous decision defeat to Marcos Maidana on Saturday.

One moment that cannot be overlooked is how he flopped after being headbutt by Maidana in the eighth round.

Maidana recorded his second knockdown of the fight in the eighth, and Broner was so desperate to gain any edge possible that he totally faked being hurt after Maidana raised his head into his chin. I mean just look at Broner’s pathetic delayed reaction. He got hit, realized he had a chance to gain a point, and went down about a second or two later. What an acting job.

Maidana’s headbutt wasn’t the traditional head-to-head type of headbutt, but he still was penalized a point because of Broner’s act.

Luckily for Maidana, losing the point did not affect the outcome of the fight as he won easily on all three judges’ cards. But you can definitely add this to the list of embarrassing moments that Broner will have to work awfully hard to overcome. He really lost a lot of respect among fans for his poor showing.

Marcos Maidana humpMarcos Maidana beat Adrien Broner by unanimous decision on Saturday in San Antonio to steal the former champion’s WBA welterweight title, and he also got even with Broner in the simulated sex act category.

At the end of the first round, the flashy Broner slipped behind Maidana in the corner and pretended to hump him. Maidana knocked Broner down the next round and again in the eighth, and then he got him back by pretending to hump him from behind in the 11th.

The crowd absolutely loved it when Maidana got Broner back with the fake hump. The fans seemed to be pro-Maidana the entire way and even threw drinks at Broner as he and his entourage exited the ring after the decision was announced.

This is a perfect example of why so many fans can’t stand Broner. If you’re going to be flashy and disrespectful in the ring like that, you better back it up. Broner couldn’t and is now a major disappointment.

You know how we talk about Adrien Broner being desperate for attention? He’s so hungry for headlines and the spotlight that he’ll even break out a sex act in the ring while he’s losing a fight.

Broner was dropped for the first time in his career during the second round of his fight with Marcos Maidana on Saturday in San Antonio. He deserved the knockdown after what he did to Maidana a minute earlier.

With about 15 seconds left in the first round, Broner slipped behind Maidana in the corner and pretended to hump him. The Showtime announcers couldn’t believe the disrespectful act, and the crowd began to boo and even flipped him off for what he did.
