The birdie doesn’t lie.
I was told that today would be the day that Mayweather would announce his opponent and that is exactly what happened.

It isn’t a huge surprise because Amir Khan basically gave it away with all his whining over the weekend. We are awaiting word on the location of the fight.
Here is what Mayweather had to say.
“Marcos Maidana’s last performance immediately brought him to my attention,” said Mayweather, who celebrates his 37th birthday today. “He is an extremely skilled fighter who brings knockout danger to the ring. I think this is a great fight for me and he deserves the opportunity to see if he can do what 45 others have tried to do before him – beat me.”
