LEONARD ELLERBE, CEO of Mayweather Promotions
"Maidana's a tremendous fighter. He can crack with either hand and Floyd is going to have to be at his best to beat him on May 3.
[On the Mayweather Promotions opponent poll] "Floyd has over 11 million followers across different platforms, all of those were taken under consideration.
"On the first tweet he put out, there were over 50,000 comments on the first two hours. My team and I went through all of the responses, and Maidana was an overwhelming favorite.
"Maidana earned the right to fight Floyd and May 3 is going to be a great night for boxing."
