Marcos Maidana took a swipe at Floyd Mayweather Jr., more than a week after losing his World Boxing Association welterweight title during their showdown at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Maidana, who absorbed a majority decision loss to Mayweather in their title unification bout, called Mayweather "a baby girl", a fighter who is always trying to find excuses.

The 30-year-old Argentine claimed that Mayweather seemed like a lost man when he continuously attacked him during the fight, adding that he doesn't know why Mayweather's previous opponent got intimidated by the reigning pound-for-pound king.

"Mayweather is a baby girl, all the time trying to find excuses," Maidana said in an interview with Clarin newspaper in Argentina. "Rivals who fight him are intimidated with the show he puts on but it is not what it seems. Every time I hit him he did not know to do."

Maidana was an overwhelming underdog heading into fight night, but he managed to defy the odds as he was able to give Mayweather arguably the toughest fight of his illustrious career.

The Buenos Aires, Argentina native took the fight to Mayweather since the opening bell, throwing more punches throughout the fight, but Mayweather was more accurate with his attack, which was enough to get the judges' nod.

"It was a tough, competitive fight," Mayweather said after the fight. "I normally like to go out there and box and move. But he put pressure on me. I wanted to give the fans what they wanted to see so I stood and fought him."

Maidana also insisted that the fight could have ended the other way around had Mayweather's camp not complained about the gloves to be used in the bout.

Mayweather complained about the lack of padding in Maidana's gloves, and the Argentine was forced to use another pair. Maidana said that he could have knocked Mayweather out if he was allowed to use his preferred gloves.

"If I would have had my gloves I would have knocked him out," Maidana said. "They took away my advantage."
