5. The winner of the first bout usually wins even easier the second time

This one is important folks. There is a long line of precedent in the fight game that says in a close bout the man that won the first go around, usually takes the second bout with ease (e.g., Chavez-Taylor, Pryor-Arguello, etc.). This could certainly be the case here. Mayweather knows what he’s up against this time. Even Maidana admitted he had the element of surprise going into the first bout,

“Looking back at my first fight, I think I can improve my punching accuracy, but my attack overall was very good and effective. I felt I surprised Mayweather. You could see it on his face.”

However, this time Maidana’s element of surprise will not be present. For Mayweather round 1 will be round 13. He’s had a chance to download Maidana’s game, he will make the necessary adjustments, and so he should come in with the game plan to bring in the win. One caveat here – styles make fights, it may be the case that Maidana simply has a style that gives Mayweather enough fits, no matter how many times they meet up.
