Mayweather Jr., sigue haciendo de las suyas dominando de nuevo a Chino
Antes de dar mi versión de lo que fue la pelea estelar de peso welter entre Maidana contra Mayweather Jr., les recuerdo que los momios tenían como favorito a Floyd 7x1, o sea que para ganar $100, tenias que arriesgar $700, lo bueno del asunto que mucha gente por lógica apostaron al favorito a ganar por decisión, lo que les pagaría la misma cantidad que pusieron.
