Mayweather vs. Maidana: Head-to-Toe Breakdown of Epic Rematch

Pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather made some big news at the BET Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Boxing’s undefeated kingpin used the ceremony—breaking from tradition a bit by not announcing via his Twitter feed—to announce, per Martin Domin of the Daily Mail, that he would be meeting Marcos “Chino” Maidana in a rematch on Sept. 13.

You can watch a video of the announcement right here.

The two welterweights met in a spirited encounter earlier this year, and for the first time in a very long time, Mayweather found himself in a tough, grueling fight with a fair bit of drama when the official scorecards were read, awarding him a deserved majority-decision victory.

The decision to face Maidana a second time doesn’t come as a major surprise, given the competitive nature of their first contest and the recent turmoil—in which Mayweather is a major part—that has shaken the boxing world.

September may seem like a ways off, but it’s never too early to break down the fight and the fighters.

This is your complete head-to-toe breakdown of Mayweather vs. Maidana 2.
