Mayweather and Maidana branded each other as dirty fighter

Idris Erba/Mayweather Promotions
During the Mayweather vs Maidana rematch press tours in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles; the word "dirty fighter" is the common word that both men called each other. But who do you think is dirty?

Here's what Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Marcos Maidana said that says the other is a dirty fighter.

Official fight announcement - New York

Floyd Mayweather Jr.
"Is Maidana a better fighter than Canelo? No. Cotto? No. He's just a dirtier fighter. I didn't get a deep gash from a punch; I got it from a head butt."

Marcos Maidana
"I fight dirty? He's the king of the elbows."

Press Tour - Chicago

Floyd Mayweather Jr.
"I have to watch this guy in there. He's dirty."

"It's obvious he's doing something right if he is facing me again and he won a few rounds from me. But the referee had a bad night last time. We forgive him but this is going to be a much cleaner fight. Note of those dirty rabbit punches or elbows."

Press Tour - Los Angeles

Floyd Mayweather Jr.
"Marcos Maidana is a very, very dirty fighter. In our last fight he had over 10 low blows, head butts. He's in the wrong sport if he wants to fight a bare knuckle brawl, this is boxing. We are both looking to have careers after boxing; I don't want to risk my health."

"To be honest, Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez are better fighters than Maidana. They are better, stronger boxers. With me and Canelo, it was more of a chess match as opposed to Maidana who came at me very dirty and reckless. I knew something crazy was going to happen in our fight, which it did, I got a headbutt."

"Back in May, I tried to get the attention of the referee in the eighth round because Floyd was fighting very dirty and he didn't even honor that, he tried to pull a Victor Ortiz shot on me. That's the type of fighter he is - dirty and sneaky.

Marcos Maidana 
"In all of his fights, he [Mayweather] brings his elbows out. He really likes to use his elbows. One of his moves is to put his elbow in the fighter's throat and the referee for some reason let him get away with it. We all know he [Mayweather] does whatever he wants because he has the judges in his pocket. He is a dirty fighter.
