Maidana to face Mayweather on May 3
Marcos "Chino" Maidana will face five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a welterweight title fight on May 3.
Mayweather, who turns 37 on Monday, revealed the news via Twitter, ending months of speculation about his next opponent.
Mayweather defeated Saul Canelo Álvarez in his most recent bout in September and subsequently announced the May 3 fight without identifying his next opponent. The site for the matchup has yet to be announced.
Mayweather has a perfect 45-0 record while Maidana is coming off an impressive win against Adrien Broner to be 35-3.
