It’s fight week in Las Vegas!
Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana are under a week away from meeting at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for their huge welterweight unification clash, and we’ll set you up right with all the storylines and information you’ll need before the big fight.
Mayweather will put his WBC Welterweight Championship on the line against Maidana’s WBA 147-pound title on Saturday night (9 p.m. ET, Showtime pay-per-view), and the world will be watching.
Mayweather (45-0, 26 KO) is boxing’s undisputed best fighter. He’s undefeated, seldom ever challenged and he easily dispatched the much larger Canelo Alvarez last September in boxing’s richest fight.
Maidana (35-3, 31 KO) is a rugged, power-punching Argentine who secured his lottery ticket by taking out then-undefeated Mayweather protege Adrien Broner last December to capture his share of the welterweight crown.
So here it is in one convenient package. All you need to know about the big fight is contained within. Here we’ll ask questions, speculate a bit and give you all the top storylines for “The Moment: Mayweather vs. Maidana.”
