Floyd Mayweather will fight Marcos Maidana on May 3

He’s been untouchable in the ring for years. Will that change on May 3rd?

 

The undisputed pound-for-pound champion of boxing has another fight to look forward to: a May 3rd bout with Marcos Maidana. The 12-round welterweight unification fights will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, promoted by Golden Boy Productions and Mayweather Promotions. Mayweather is still undefeated, sporting a 45-0 record with 26 knockouts, while Maidana is 35-3 with 31 knockouts. Mayweather convincingly beat Robert Guerrero and Canelo Alvarez in 2013, with the Alvarez fight becoming the highest-grossing boxing match of all-time at $150 million. Floyd is also known for making very large sports bets… can you imagine the amount of cash he’d throw on himself if it weren’t against every rule in the book?

Maidana is Argentinian, and was thrust into the limelight after handing Andrien Broner the first defeat in his career in December. Maidana also has a win over Erik Morales under his belt, but Mayweather is the biggest game in town, and a win over the brash 37-year old champion would make him a part of boxing folklore. It’s always a spectacle anytime Money Mayweather is involved, and you can be sure the eyes of the world will be on that ring.

One Direction’s streak continues with another solid win. No one has posed much of a threat to them, and this week is no different. They racked up twice the clicks as their nearest competitor, the resurgent Mr. Bieber. He doesn’t have too much to complain about, after months in exile in the bottom five, top three results are a refreshing change of pace.

Landing with a big smash, Wimbledon takes third. The Championships got underway earlier this week with some huge upsets. Two time Wimbledon champ and favorite Rafael Nadal lost in the opening round, and defending champ Roger Federer lost in the second round. Local boy Andy Murray is probably liking his odds right about now.

In other smashing news, Floyd Mayweather rounds out the top five thanks to his upcoming bout with Canelo Alvarez. The event is hot, so waiting until September to look for tickets isn’t advised.

After the shake-up at the top, Bruno and Luke end up in the bottom five, where Drake remains, and the College World Series signs off. The UCLA Bruins swept Mississippi State in the final two games for their first CWS win.

To celebrate the Bruins’ win, here’s that song about baseball you’ve all heard before:
