Floyd Mayweather Jr.: The physically shredded 5’7″ 1/2″ Mayweather is about as picture perfect of a boxer that you would want with the exception of one-punch power and punch output. Mayweather can fight at any distance and possesses impeccable timing, blinding hand-speed and untouchable defense. Mayweather has a tremendous work ethic and can fight hard for 3:00 minutes of every round. Mayweather has been hurt and does not have a granite chin but he has shown a champions heart and a genius boxing I.Q. Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana II Betting Odds Over/Under is at 11.5 Rounds with the Over at -500 at SPORTS BETTING ONLINE
Marcos Maidana: The thick-armed 5’7″ Argentine is a swarming brawler that hurls bombs from a crouch in Rocky Marciano-like fashion. Maidana is effective at cutting off the ring and unloading haymaker hooks to the head and body. The lead-fisted Maidana has excellent power in both hands and is deceptively accurate with his swings. Maidana’s aggressive style leaves him in harms way but his decent defense makes him difficult to hurt. Blessed with a great chin, Maidana can absorb massive punishment and is very determined. Maidana’s footwork leaves something to be desired and like most punchers his stamina fades in the championship rounds.
Expert Fight Picks Prediction: The casual boxing observer in today’s MMA crazed society does not know how to accurately judge a professional boxing match which is why there is a demand for a Mayweather vs Maidana rematch. Mayweather clearly won the first fight on ESPN2 News scorecard by a score of 115-113. Having had a good look at Maidana in the first scrap, the brilliant boxing mind of Mayweather will make adjustments and could shut out Maidana on the scorecards. Mayweather is not quite what he once was, “father time” has a funny way of catching up with all of us, even unbeaten boxing legends are not immune. Maidana is a nasty customer with a great chin but his boxing I.Q. is not quite high enough to outduel “Money” Mayweather’s pugilistic intellect. The true x-factor in this is Mayweather recruiting former Maidana strength coach Alex Ariza in NFL “Spy Gate” fashion. As Gordon Gekko once proclaimed “Information is my greatest known commodity.”
