MARCOS MAIDANA, WBA Welterweight World Champion
"I know I am fighting the best in the world and that this is the biggest opportunity there is, so I am very thankful to Mayweather for giving me the chance.
"I never let what anybody outside the ring says bother me. I've heard a little about what they're saying, but it doesn't matter. I've heard it before.
"I've been an underdog my whole life. I was the underdog against Adrien Broner and Victor Ortiz and you saw what happened. I won. I am the underdog again in this fight, but I earned the right to the fight.
"I will give Mayweather a much better fight than any of the other contenders will. I have trained very well, and I'm in great shape. The only pressure is to perform well. I am a fighter and I come to fight. I don't respect any opponent when I'm in the ring. I'm in this fight to win.
"This is going to be a great fight that fans will not want to miss. They know my style is to come forward. They know I like to be the aggressor. They know I throw heavy punches that can seriously hurt my opponent. .
"My fans know I am going to give it my all, my absolute best. I am excited and very confident. I am ready for May 3 and I'm ready for Floyd Mayweather.''
