Did Marcos Maidana bite Floyd Mayweather on hand? (Video)

Floyd Mayweather Jr. was in a little trouble after getting punched by Marcos Maidana in the 8th round of their fight Saturday night in Las Vegas, and he complained to the referee that Maidana bit him in the hand.

After Mayweather backed away like a cobra bit him, referee Kenny Bayless separated the two fighters. He examined Mayweather’s gloves first, and then Maidana’s gloves second. He didn’t see anything unusual and let the two continue fighting.

Mayweather had been placing his hand to cover Maidana’s face to keep his opponent from breathing comfortably when they were huddled, so the bite may have been Maidana’s way of retaliating, if it happened. In fact, Maidana seemed to say as much in his post-fight interview. He denied biting Mayweather, but complained that Floyd kept rubbing his eyes.

“After the eighth round I really couldn’t use my left hand,” Mayweather told interviewer Jim Gray after the fight.

Here’s another view of the alleged bite:

Lil Wayne wanted to fight Marcos Maidana’s trainer (Video)

Lil Wayne was in a combative mood after watching his buddy Floyd Mayweather barely beat Marcos Maidana by majority decision on Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

As this video shows, Weezy was prepared to throw down with members of Maidana’s crew after the fight. TMZ says things got heated after Weezy was hit by a water bottle. Lil Wayne went after Maidana’s crew in response. You can hear him repeatedly shouting, “Let’s go!”

Lil Wayne has been in Floyd’s entourage for his last several fights. As hard as Weezy is, you still don’t want to mess with Maidana’s click. Those dudes are from Oxnard and not to be taken lightly. Seriously, who do you think wins? The real gangsters from Oxnard, or this trio of sock puppets?

Floyd Mayweather cut above right eye by Marcos Maidana headbutt (GIF)

Floyd Mayweather Marcos Maidana headbuttFloyd Mayweather Jr. was cut for the first time in one of his fights, making his bout with Marcos Maidana unusually uncomfortable for him.

Maidana caught Floyd with a headbutt in the fourth round to open up a cut above Floyd’s right eye. Floyd was bleeding afterwards and was treated by his corner between rounds the rest of the fight to keep the cut in control, and they did a good job doing so.

Even before the cut, Maidana was making life difficult for Floyd. He was relentless in the first few rounds and did a good job cornering Floyd against the ropes and throwing punches, especially the overhand right. Floyd took over in the second half of the fight and closed well. I thought it was a draw, which is how one of the three judges scored it. The other two scored it in favor of Mayweather, who won by majority decision. Don’t ask me how one judge had it 9 rounds to 3 in favor of Floyd. That was ridiculous.

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.
