Well everyone. Floyd Mayweather selected his opponent for May 3rd. That opponent will be Marcos Rene Maidana. Floyd had fans decide on who he wants to fight and the choices were Amir Khan or Marcos Maidana. Fans voted and they picked Khan but unfortunately the fans did not get it right. Instead Floyd will fight Maidana. My reason why I think Floyd picked Maidana is because Maidana defeated Adrien Broner. From there, I think that is why Floyd picked Maidana instead of Khan (due to Maidana's victory against Broner). Along with that, I think Floyd wants to unify the titles which is his WBC, Ring title and WBA title (Maidana has).
I look forward to seeing this fight on Showtime pay per view. Stay tuned for updates on the press tour and who will be fighting on the undercard of Mayweather-Maidana.
