The Shadow says:

Yeah, yeah, yeah. You gotta have faith. Who is he now, George Michael?

Faith won't get you far in the chamber of truth that is the squared circle.

Faith?

You still got mothersuckers looking to the sky every day waiting for the trumpets to blow, the angels the sing before Jesus descends to Earth to restore order, line us all up and ask us whether we've behaved.

Perhaps Faith is the name of his new spiritual trainer? His new gf? Because without his mistress Mircera in his corner, faith won't mean a damn thing.

Dude should take it as a victory if he even sees Sept. 14. I wouldn't be surprised to see a fatality.

The more I think about the rematch, the more I think we are going to see something very similar to the first fight with the exception being that Floyd takes over a little earlier and ends up winning in a more clear cut manner.

I see Maidana coming out guns a blazing again and having a little success making Floyd feel uncomfortable early. But Floyd knows to expect this and will be better prepared mentally for the hard charging Maidana.

As the fight progresses into say the third and fourth rounds, I see the dynamic of the fight changing with Floyd having got into a rhythm of the fight and starting to get in the flow of his game. This will be the big difference from the first fight. Floyd begins to seize momentum much earlier and starts to take control in some of the earlier rounds rather than later in the fight.

Going into the mid to late rounds, Maidana's pace will once again slow and Floyd starts to become more and more dominant. Maidana can't keep up a torrid pace for 12 rounds and showed that in the first fight.

Ultimately, this goes to the cards and Floyd wins by margins ranging from 118-110 to 116-112 for the most generous judges to Maidana. The press will mostly have it scored either 9 or 10 rounds to Floyd and he will erase any doubts anyone may have had from the first fight with a much more clearer victory this time around.

Excellent, excellent observation. If this is the same Maidana, this is how it will go. But if he doesn't have his mistress, he will get slaughtered, brutally tortured.

Something like Gatti x3.

The Good Doctor says:

I am being bold in saying this but this fight will be nothing like the first. Floyd will win this one going away. Here's why:

-Floyd will stay off the ropes.
-Floyd will pot shot and get out rather than exchange which he did some.
-Floyd knows now how to prepare for the overhand right.
-The ref will be conscious of the rough tactics used by Maidana the first time and may be a little more ready to prevent it this time
-History says that fighters that fight out of their mind the first time, have a real hard fighting that way again. (Marg-Cotto 2, Rahman-Lewis 2, Williams-Quintana 2)

Floyd 117-111 and Maidana looks unprepared at times.

Sorry, guys! But Money May will be in a pure chess hell. The only way that he is going to do what you guys say, is for Maidana to be once again in pure fright of Money May's game of hype and fight and bulljiving of being outta sight and blinding people from the light.

Maidana has been in the lion den now. And he knows that the Mayweather lion is more of a roaring optical illusion creature than a biting one. Because the now old lion's teeth have weaken and his paws are more brittle than ever. Even xylocaine cannot help anymore.

Money May will never be a cowardly lion, but he better quit being a prideful one too. And start being a brave one that goes not back to a prey who didn't let him have his way.

This fight will not be a walk in the park. So Money May will not be as happy as a lark. He's going to realize that he is being circle by an attacking, unafraid shark. And he's going to keep from getting ate up, and impress the judges with a ToTT big bark.

Money May again narrowly wins in a close scrap. And in fighting these type of opponents, he oughta' call it a rap. Holla!

You think his legs are going on him?

He skated around gracefully against the Ghost, with Chino being aggressive and rough I can not see a reason for him to not bicycle in the first one, except that his legs aren't what they used to be.

He's not as energetic as he once was. He just want to get by now. And get the win without expending much effort. His heart is not into energetic fighting anymore. Holla!

Excellent analysis and excellently put. His legs are just fine. I think he pushes himself so much in training so that he has the reserves, should he need it, but he won't over exert himself to get the victory. He'll do just enough.

No different than Ali when he stopped dancing or really training. Though he could still move around, he realized he didn't need to. He could just make the first eight rounds even by letting his opponent punch his arms, stealing rounds with last minute flurries and then start fighting from the 9th round on.

Mayweather may fight hard this time, though. I think he's upset and slightly embarrassed about what happened the last time.

Now that they “took his belt and his girl” Missy, as Broner would say, Marcos will no longer be immune to body shots or have the stamina of a Kenyan long-distance runner.

I see this as some Roman Colosseum [I]damnatio ad bestia[/I] ish. If he escapes whole I will consider this a huge upset.

No way does a great, can-do-it-all, seasoned pug as Money May, becomes “upset and slightly embarrassed about…” the past. He is a trained killa' with the urge to whup arse and not emotionally EVER merge. Holla!

Good point! You don't think he wants to prove a point, though?

He got ahead of himself listening to nonsense that he lost. And he made a mistake quickly signing for a rematch on da fly without thinking. So now he is going through the motion of an rematch against a wild bull. After all, 98.5 percent of the time, the matador beat and stab and kill the bull. Holla!
