Mayweather vs Maidana 2: Five Reasons to Watch Tonight's Fights (Sept. 13, 2014)


finally, a show that's easy to sell. Almost all Hard Core Boxing Heads will be tuning in one way or another -- pay-per-view, theater, live, closed circuit, sneakthievery -- to watch tonight's rematch between Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana.

But in case you're on the fence, let's go over a few good reasons to watch this fight tonight, which if you do, will cost you some pocket change.

1. Mayweather's not going to be here forever

Floyd Mayweather will turn 38 between this fight and whatever he does next. We keep saying Floyd is aging, but a couple of things prevent that from really sticking with a lot of people:
He doesn't seem old.
Nobody wants to accept it.
Since Mayweather (46-0, 26 KO) is boxing's biggest draw in the United States, which remains the epicenter of boxing despite the very welcome globalization of the sport, it's a little scary that he's nearing the end of his line. But he really is, and it might not be because he starts losing fights and needs to leave, or becomes far more regular (think Roy Jones Jr's last, oh, decade and change). It's just that it doesn't seem likely that even if he keeps winning, he's going to want to stick around in boxing all that much longer.

Of course, Jones also said he'd retire before boxing got the best of him, and here we are. But if Mayweather stays true to his word, your chances to see the greatest boxer of a generation, and a true ring genius, are fading fast. This could be one of his last fights.

2. Eventually, someone is (likely) going to beat Floyd Mayweather

It's hard to retire undefeated in boxing. Rocky Marciano did it, hanging up the gloves at age 32. Joe Calzaghe did it, retiring at 36. Sven Ottke did it with the great assistance of many boxing officials, retiring at 36, too.

Mayweather is already older than any of those guys, and quite frankly he routinely faces better competition than Calzaghe did, and he's, you know, not a total sack like Ottke was.

So it stands to reason that sooner than later, someone is going to beat Floyd Mayweather. Miguel Cotto was competitive in 2012. Canelo Alvarez had some moments, at least, in 2013, though Mayweather clearly won both of those fights. And Marcos Maidana gave Mayweather his toughest fight since Jose Luis Castillo earlier this year. It keeps getting closer.

And if nothing else, considering his last two fights have been majority decisions, Floyd might be closer to getting robbed, because some judges feel like Being Part of History in a fight that probably should have gone Mayweather's way.

3. Mayweather has declined just enough that this style matchup is tough

Mayweather is better than Maidana. I don't think anyone's going to dispute that claim. But Floyd's legs are simply not what they used to be, and that means he has a tougher time with relentless pressure guys. Cotto put him on the ropes and did damage a couple years ago, and Maidana roughed him up badly (by Mayweather standards) earlier this year.

Defensively, he's still a genius, but time takes a toll on everyone. It's been 18 years in the pro game for Mayweather, and even though he's never taken huge punishment in a single fight, or been knocked out, or really beaten up badly, it's still a ton of miles between training camps, fights, and everything else. There's no question that his odometer is getting up there.

There are better fighters than Maidana, probably, that Floyd could still rout. I think Alvarez is a better fighter than Maidana overall, but Mayweather had a much easier time with Canelo than he did with Chino. That's because styles make fights. No matter how many times this is said, it seems like it gets forgotten all the time. Last weekend's Broner-Taylor fight is an example. Taylor was pretty clearly routed earlier this year by Chris Algieri, and gave Broner a really good fight.

Is Algieri better than Broner? Yeah, he might be. But Taylor was successful because Broner doesn't use his legs effectively. Algieri does. That gave Taylor fits all night. He found some rhythm with Broner, who was more willing to stand and trade. Against Algieri, he never was able to get comfortable.Boxing: Mayweather vs. Maidana II – LIVE

Kell Brook might be a better fighter than Maidana, but I get the feeling Mayweather would find him easier than he does the Argentine. Maidana's style isn't hard to predict or even prepare for, but he's a really good pressure fighter that simply does not relent. He never stops attacking. Mayweather adjusted in the first fight, and probably will again. But this guy isn't going to be easy for him, no matter what he says.

4. There is an undercard!
