LAS VEGAS — Floyd Mayweather Jr. will fight a rematch on Sept. 13 with Marcos Maidana, the Argentinian who gave him a tougher bout than expected when they met in May.

Mayweather announced Thursday that Maidana would get a rematch in a pay-per-view fight from the MGM Grand hotel-casino. Mayweather won the first fight between the two by majority decision, but Maidana was given credit for taking the fight to the undefeated welterweight champion.

Maidana said after the fight he thought he won, and that Mayweather never hurt him. “He wasn’t that tough,” Maidana said.

Mayweather is 46-0 with 26 knockouts and Maidana is 35-4 with 31 knockouts. The fight will be promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.
