Look, alright, none of us ever thought that tonight’s bout between Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana would fall through. Was TMT playing hardball about gloves? Sure. Was there a buttload of money on the line? Absolutely. With that much money on the line there is just no way that this fight wouldn’t happen, not just because of Mayweather’s purse, but because of the money that Mayweather Promotions, Showtime, etc. have dropped to make the event happen.
According to the latest reports, Team Mayweather has given the go-ahead for the NSAC-approved gloves that Maidana’s camp proposed last night and everything is good to go for tonight on PPV. So if you were sitting there with baited breath waiting to find out if the show would go on, you can now breathe easily, because tonight Floyd Mayweather will fight.
