Mayweather-Maidana PPV finalized

The four-fight May 3 SHOWTIME PPV event, “THE MOMENT: Mayweather vs. Maidana,” is now complete with the addition of two 10-round bouts. Opening the pay-per-view event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas will be a super middleweight matchup between unbeaten J’Leon Love (17-0, 10 KOs) and former title challenger and Mexican Olympian Marco Antonio Periban (20-1-1, 13 KOs), followed by a junior welterweight bout featuring former three-division world champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner (27-1, 22 KOs) against Carlos Molina (17-1-1. 7 KOs). Note: this isn’t Carlos Molina the IBF jr middleweight champion who is currently incarcerated, but jr welterweight prospect Carlos Molina, whom Amir Khan fought in his comeback fight in 2012. Molina has not fought since the Khan bout.

“I had minor set back but I am back on May 3rd. Everybody needs to understand that I just took a loss. I haven’t lost it,” said Broner. “I’m still ‘The Problem and anyone CAN get it, whether you are AfriCAN, Puerto RiCAN, DominiCAN, CuBAN or MexiCAN.”

“It would be easy for us to simply put a great fight like Floyd Mayweather vs. Marcos Maidana on top of this card and leave it at that, but that’s not fair to the boxing fans that demand and deserve more,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “So with the rest of this pay-per-view card, we’ve stacked it with an important bout between former world champions Amir Khan and Luis Collazo, the return of one of boxing’s top young superstars as Adrien Broner faces tough Carlos Molina, and an opener between J’Leon Love and Marco Antonio Periban that could produce the next super middleweight world title challenger. It will be an unforgettable night for all boxing fans.”
