Mayweather vs. Maidana Fight Card Predictions


mayweather-vs-maidanaIt's Mayweather vs. Maidana in may.  A lot of Mays.  There are fights worthy of discussion in the rest of the month, but that will come in another article.  Expecting to hear the same prediction over and over, I actually am seeing some variance from the experts.  Seems we shouldn't be so quick to dismiss either Maidana's chances, or Mayweather's power.  Let's break down the televised card:

Mayweather vs. Maidana
I have heard everything from "Maidana has the best chance to make an ugly fight and a close one", to "Floyd will finally get a KO here".  I believe none of it.  Slick boxers with decent chins give Maidana his toughest fights.  He may force Mayweather to be more active, but that will only last until Mayweather has control.  A stoppage is more likely than people think, but that is just not Floyd's game.  And of all the people to risk it against, a bomber like Maidana won't be the one.  Mayweather by 9-3 UD.

Luis Collazo vs. Amir Khan
The toughest call of the night.  The winner will get Floyd?  Let me correct you.  The winner will get Floyd if it's Khan.  It should be.  Collazo is troublesome, and an underrated fighter, but his power-display in the Ortiz fight has more to do with Ortiz than Collazo.  He will likely go outside of his normal style, and that is where Khan will get him.  Amir has never been bothered by slick boxers anyhow.  He's too quick, and powerful.  Pressure defeats Khan, and Collazo is not the best at that game.  His heart is a plus, and Khan is always one punch away from losing, but gut instinct says Khan by close MD.

Adrien Broner vs. Carlos Molina
Taking on a light-hitting fighter one division down is the right move for Broner, but it is no way to win back the critics who say size and power are your downfall.  Molina will show heart, but style-wise this is a nightmare fight for him.  Broner usually walks down fighters whose power he does not respect, and then he breaks them to the body.  At welter this did not work, as those high-level, bigger fighters could not be broken.  It will happen here.  Broner by 5th round TKO, after a slow start.

J'Leon Love vs. Marco Antonio Periban
It's seems Mayweather promotions doesn't think the bad luck will continue with matching it's young super middleweights with Periban.  The overrated Mexican 168lber has received a loss and a draw that should have been a loss when he has stepped up... the latter being against Love stablemate Badou Jack.  Love has a lot to prove for an undefeated fighter, mainly because of the closeness and positive drug test surrounding his fight with Gabriel Rosado.  This is a chance for him to right the ship in a division where not much 168lb action exists on Showtime, outside of TMT.  It would be a test, but Periban is only troublesome and durable, little else.  Love by UD.
