Mayweather: Broner should stop chasing Maidana and fight on my card at 140

Current two-weight world champion Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather has stated that Adrien Broner should not look for a rematch with Marcos Maidana and head back down to light-welterweight after suffering his first loss recently.

Mayweather, who fights on May 3 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, gave his advice to ‘The Problem’ in the latest of a series of interviews with as the world’s best fighter begins canvassing ahead of the announcement of his next opponent.

“I don’t think he (Broner) should focus on chasing a Maidana fight,” Mayweather stated.

“What I think would be a good one for him is May 3rd fight on my undercard. You know, fight this other guy at 140 and get back on the right track to get your career in order.”

Broner, 24, billed himself as the natural successor to Mayweather when the current fighting legend hangs up his gloves until rugged Argentinian Maidana end his unbeaten record in convincing fashion in Texas.

Close friend and mentor Mayweather is now offering a helping hand to the former 130, 135 and 147lb title holder, who is heavily tipped to move back down the weight classes for his next outing.
