Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana full fight video preview online: Keys to victory

Pound-for-pound boxing great Floyd Mayweather is back on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV) later on tonight (Sat., May 3, 2014) to battle Marcos Maidana in a 147-pound championship bout at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.


Floyd Mayweather's keys to victory:

"Floyd Mayweather is the most skilled boxer of his generation. Even at age 37 those skills shown no sign of erosion. He'll play Matador to Maidana's bull-like rushes. When Mayweather keeps things in the center of the ring, he's hardly ever hit. Movement is deadly to Maidana. Devon Alexander used it to outbox him. The Mayweather right lands with frightening accuracy. Mayweather has many ways of landing the right. Against Canelo Alvarez, he expertly used two touch jabs to set the punch up. The right hand followed quickly and accurately. It's Mayweather's major offensive weapon. He'll use it often in his effort to remain unbeaten."

And Marcos Maidana's:

"Marcos Maidana, with 31 KOs and 35 wins, is the power puncher in his match with Floyd Mayweather. The problem is landing those power punches. Here's how the big hitting Argentine might do it: Jose Luis Castillo gave Mayweather trouble with volume punching. Maidana can't hesitate to throw. Maidana's jab is much improved. When he throws it to the body, it helps set up his left hook and this punch is vital if he hopes to beat Mayweather. Against Adrien Broner, Maidana jabbed to the body often. In this case, what started out as a jab turned into a left hook. Twice in the fight he sent Broner down with this punch. He hopes for the same result against Mayweather and with it, a huge upset win."
