New WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana has called out pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr following his title win over the previously undefeated American Adrien Broner.
After landing back in his native Argentina, Maidana told the assembled media“The only one I want to fight is Mayweather”.
“Nothing has been discussed yet. Now we’re going to take a vacation and rest, but the only one that I will go back and fight with is Mayweather.”
“I never feared [Broner] and I showed that I deserve to be part of the biggest events.
“He said that he was going to hit me so much that I would leave speaking English after the fight but it seems to me he’s now speaking Spanish!”
