Former world champion Marcos Maidana may have raised eyebrows when walking off into the sunset with the millions earned from two Floyd Mayweather encounters but the Argentinian seems to be absolutely loving life in retirement.
Maidana hung up his gloves in 2014 at the age of 31, possibly at the peak of his powers, following two points defeats against the then pound for pound number one.
Earning millions for his efforts and becoming only the second man, after Jose Luis Castillo, to earn a second fight with Mayweather, Maidana was still a massive name in the sport when he made the decision to walk away.
Still only 34, Maidana could step back into the sport any moment he chooses, although that seems highly unlikely as ‘Chino’ enjoys the fruits of his labour with his feet firmly up and cigar in hand.
Obviously enjoying his food and drink, Maidana’s gameplan to get out with all his faculties and with a bank full of cash has paid dividends for the solid puncher, who won 35 of his 40 bouts in the ring during a ten-year career.
