Whether you plan to watch it live on Showtime PPV® from the comfort of your couch or live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the May 3 fight promises a lot of action and suspense as 10-time world champion Floyd Mayweather takes on knockout artist Marcos “El Chino” Maidana in Las Vegas.
This fight has already generated a ton of buzz on social media. In fact, it was Mayweather who back in February asked fans back on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram who they thought he should fight next and the response was an overwhelming majority favoring Maidana.
Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs), of Margarita, Santa Fe, Argentina, captured the attention of boxing and sports fans around the world with his thorough defeat of the highly regarded and undefeated Adrien Broner on Dec. 14, 2013. The 30-year-old impressively dominated Broner from the opening bell and registered two knockdowns against the three-time world champion. Maidana connected with a punishing 231 power punches in the bout en route to a unanimous decision by margins of 117-109, 115-109 and 115-110.
Mayweather vs. Maidana, a 12-round world championship unification bout for Mayweather and Maidana's respective 147-pound titles, is promoted by Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions. The event will be produced and distributed live by SHOWTIME PPV and is the third fight of a lucrative six-fight deal with Showtime Networks Inc.
