Former world champion Marcos Maidana ripped into current WBC/WBA welterweight and super welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather during an international media conference call in advance of their PPV title clash on September 13 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Marcos Maidana: For the second fight he can come out differently, have a different game plan. I’m not gonna change. I’m gonna come and I’m gonna put the pressure on and I’m going to try to force him to fight. I’m hoping that he doesn’t start running like a little b*tch all over the ring.
The way to counter his defense moves, the shoulder rolls, and the arms and all that is I’m going to hit him there. I’m gonna hit him in the shoulder, I’m gonna hit him in the arms, and come the eighth or ninth rounds he’s going to be so tired from all the punches that he’s not going to be able to defend himself anymore.
I’m preparing for anything. I hope that he stands and fights but if he’s going to run like a little b*tch, I’m going to have to chase him.
It doesn’t bother me [that Floyd thinks he's a dirty fighter]. There’s things he does in there, as well. It’s better for him to stop crying and just fight.
I’m going to do my job. I’m going to come and fight. I want him to come and fight. To stand and fight like a man. Don’t be a little b*tch like a woman running around. Fight like a man. Stand and fight like a man!
