In the early hours of Sunday morning (UK time), the world will witness the second clash between Floyd Mayweather Junior and Marcos Maidana.

Las Vegas will see two warriors collide and after a first bout, whereby Mayweather took a majority decision, it?ll be interesting to see if Maidana can upset the apple-cart this time.

We?re expecting Maidana to repeat the rough-house tactics of the first fight as he tries to unsettle Mayweather but will they be so effective this time?

One former champion who believes that Maidana can be the first to beat Mayweather is the legend that is Oscar De La Hoya. The Golden Boy chief, no great fan of Mayweather, is tipping Maidana to spring a surprise.

De La Hoya is of the opinion that Mayweather, at 37 years of age may have declined physically since the first fight and has remarked ahead of the bout,

?I?m 100% with Maidana.?

?You never know because Mayweather is 37 years old. You age in boxing overnight.?

There is even the suggestion in the air, as the animosity between Mayweather and De La Hoya surfaces, Oscar could well have offered Maidana advice on how to become the first fighter to beat Mayweather, with Oscar having remarked recently,

?I saw Maidana three days ago, he told me ?you were right, the jab!?,?

?I hope Chino uses it on Saturday. Maidana looks great, he has a great team, he?s strong with the will to win.?

So, are we about to see a huge shock in the early hours of Sunday morning (UK time) or will Mayweather simply do what he does best and win?
