Floyd Mayweather has officially announced via Twitter that his next opponent will be Marcos Maidana. The fight will be unification for Mayweather and Maidana’s welterweight titles. Mayweather tweeted, “I will be fighting Marcos Maidana May 3rd on Pay-per-view Showtime/CBS”.
The fight will be carried by Showtime PPV and will likely have a large amount of support from sister network CBS. The undercard will surely be stacked with rumors of many bouts including Adrien Broner vs Lucas Matthysse and Abner Mares vs TBA. Also, don’t be surprised if Amir Khan appears on the undercard as well.
What do you think of Mayweather’s choice? Let me know in the comments section below.
