Times Square in New York City was the place for Monday’s kick-off press conference for the PPV rematch between WBC/WBA welterweight and WBC/WBA super welterweight champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Marcos “El Chino” Maidana taking place Saturday, Sept. 13 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Marcos Maidana: I think I deserved this rematch. Without a doubt, we’re going to prove who won the first fight in this rematch.
Maidana trainer Robert Garcia: The only question everyone’s asking, and I still don’t know the answer, everybody’s asking about the glove situation and we can’t answer that question. That question you have to ask Mayweather himself.

I don’t know…elbows…what I can’t believe is this is one of the best trainers in the world but he’s telling his fighter to fight dirty. If he can beat me, do it the honest way, earn it the hard way. But I gotta realize this. I know where I’m at in my career because I was champion when your trainer was champion. It’s been almost 20 years and I’m still here. When your trainer’s career was long gone I’m still here. When I beat you and your career’s over, guess what? I’ll still be right here.
