The drama is escalating as we inch closer to the most anticipated fight of the year. With just a few weeks to go until Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana touch gloves for the second time, there is plenty of controversy, animosity and MAYHEM between both camps.
From the unresolved “glove issue” to Mayweather challenging Maidana to put his money where his mouth is, it is clear the feelings and opinions of these world-class fighters are not lost in translation. The hostility even extends to Maidana’s trainer, former world champion Robert Garcia, who challenged Mayweather to “take a little walk.” Check out this trash talking video, plus an epic selfie from Maidana, in advance of MAYHEM: Mayweather vs. Maidana 2, on Saturday, Sept. 13, LIVE on SHOWTIME PPV®.
