BOXING FANS BRING MAYHEM TO MAYWEATHER VS. MAIDANA REMATCH

Bedloo Voting Technology Plans To Revolutionize the Outcome of Showtime Boxing

Los Angeles – If at first you don’t succeed….let the fans decide.
On September 13th, Marcos Maidana will get his second chance to claim the title in the much anticipated rematch against Floyd Mayweather. After a heavily disputed fight back in May, Maidana and boxing fans insisted upon a rematch. But not just any rematch; a rematch that put the outcome of the fight into the hands of boxing enthusiasts nationwide.

Bedloo CEO, Daron Destiny, heard the call and teamed up with Maidana’s camp to bring technology into the ring with real time fight predictions. Bedloo is the world’s fastest growing Embedded Voting Platform and is changing the way fans engage with sports, especially boxing.

In a recent interview, Destiny stated “Sporting events like the Mayweather vs. Maidana rematch are highly unpredictable and instantly consumed by boxing fans. They can be as quick as a Tyson one-rounder or last the full 12 rounds. We want fans weigh the odds by voting on the outcome of each round. The judges had the final say in the first fight, this time we want the fans to decide.”

Marcos Maidana and his team couldn’t agree more. The two parties recently teamed up to include Bedloo voting in the Showtime extravaganza at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The viral capacity of the voting system will allow viewers to enjoy every round of the fight while simultaneously engaging in final outcome predictions.

The moment of truth has come… and Maidana fans plan to unleash voting mayhem on Mayweather’s parade. How will you vote?
