Until the contract is signed, there is no fight. Maidana made Money May's mug and fight-game tug look like crap. I wouldn't be surprised if Money May fight says that the last bout with Maidana is a rap. Holla!

The signs are pointing this way but I am with Radam and will not believe that Maidana is the opponent until I hear the contracts are signed. As of today, no announcement has been made.

If Maidana is the opponent, am I satisfied as a fan? Yes, Maidana gave Floyd his toughest fight in many years and I don't mind seeing it again. I will buy it, there is no question.

Is it me or has there been little activity on threads regarding this fight? Not too many people are interested and I don't blame them. Floyd is recycling a fight he had a few months ago and with only a few more fights left until his 'supposed' retirement I think the public would have wanted him to face new and fresher challenges. People weren't sold on Maidana the first time, and after Floyd made his adjustments (and Maidana became weary) he cruised to victory.

I think it's likely to be this fight now, it'll be an easy nights work. For the first time in a while, I'll catch a Floyd Mayweather fight from the comfort of my own home.

Part of the reason is that Maidana has been the assumed opponent for awhile and the rematch has already been talked about quite a bit. So when Floyd made his statement, well there really was no surprise and not much further to discuss as its already been discussed a lot.

With an official announcement, buzz will increase once again. And then as we get closer to fight week, the public will begin to get more and more interested about the thought of the rematch.
