This weekend's Mayweather vs. Maidana rematch is a huge event for boxing, largely because of the possible outcome. Yes, the undefeated Floyd Mayweather is the heavy favorite, as well he should be. But for the first time in years (and years), there is a real discussion to be had about Mayweather losing. That's because of the eye opening performance put on by Maidana in the first fight. Now, he tries to improve upon that outing and do the unthinkable - defeat the greatest fighter of his generation.
Matt Ufford at SB Nation's The Daily Win put together a video showcasing the keys to a Maidana victory. Watch the full video above, or right here.
Here are Matt's keys:
1. Control the distance and not get so far inside that he smothers his own punches.
2. Dial up the pressure even more and maintain that pressure all fight.
3. Disguise the heavy jab to land more head shots.
4. Use hooks to the body early to set up those head shots later.
What say you BE readers - can Maidana win this? And if so, is this the path to victory?
Join us here at Bloody Elbow for Mayweather vs. Maidana results, discussion, and live fight coverage this Saturday, September 13.
