The drama is escalating as we inch closer to the most anticipated fight of the year. With just a few weeks to go until Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana touch gloves for the second time, there is plenty of controversy, animosity and MAYHEM between both camps. From the unresolved “glove issue” to Mayweather challenging Maidana to put his money where his mouth is, it is clear the feelings and opinions of these world-class fighters are not lost in translation. The hostility even extends to Maidana’s trainer, former world champion Robert Garcia, who challenged Mayweather to “take a little walk.” Check out this trash talking video, in advance of MAYHEM: Mayweather vs. Maidana 2, on Saturday, Sept. 13, LIVE on SHOWTIME PPV®.

Trout climbs off canvas to rally back and defeat Dawson

By Ace Freeman (22-Aug-2014)

Austin Trout W UD10 Daniel Dawson

It was in doubt early for former world champion Austin ‘No doubt’ Trout (27-2,14 KOs) when he was down twice in the third round against former two-time world title challenger Daniel Dawson (40-2-1, 26 KOs) in the main event on ESPN Friday Night Fights… but Trout rallied and came back to win by convincing decision to halt his two fight losing skid. Trout took control early but the two knockdowns in the third came via great right hand counters from the underdog Dawson. Trout was in trouble but showed resolve to hang in there. In the fourth he took charge again with his jab and never looked back. He dropped Dawson in the eighth and was on the verge of a stoppage but the Australian hung in and lasted the distance where Trout took the bout 97-90 on all three cards. The action went down at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, California.
