Floyd Mayweather will hope to make it a perfect 47 fights unbeaten on Saturday night when he defends his WBA and WBC welterweight titles against Marcos Maidana in a rematch of their May bout.

Mayweather prevailed by a majority decision in the first fight between the pair, which also took place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

For the peerless Mayweather, however, it was a tougher bout than many expected, with the relentless Maidana having some success. As usual, though, the classier work came from veteran American, who found a way to win yet again.

What time does the fight start?

The ring bell for the main event is expected from 3.30-4am, although this is dependent on how the undercard progresses.

US broadcasters Showtime have decided to move the PPV forward by one hour, saying in a statement: "No other major sport makes a significant portion of their audiences wait until well past midnight for the peak of the event. Showtime PPV will no longer be one of the exceptions."


What channel can I watch on?

The fight will be broadcast on Saturday night, from 1am on BoxNation.
