Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana 2 Preview

Five-weight, ten time world champion boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr. will step in to the ring against Marcos Maidana for the second time on September 9th. “Money” won a scrappy and very close decision against “El Chino” back in May, and the rematch was set up during the post fight press conference of that bout. For his part, Maidana had the champion on the ropes, and cut for the first time in his career. Mayweather certainly owned the second half of the fight, but by no means dominated.

Now, as the two prepare for one of the biggest boxing showdowns of 2014, Showtime has given us a glance in to the training camps of both men. Mayweather will look to continue his incredible 46-fight win streak, and “El Chino” has said he will look to knock “Money” out in the rematch. Check out the All Access video below, and then read on for more Mayweather and Maidana Highlights and info….
