ROBERT GARCIA, Maidana's Trainer
"In 1998, Floyd and I won a title in the same year in the same weight division. Sixteen years later, I'm training my fighters to fight him and he's still a champion. That is hard to believe.
"Our guy Maidana earned this fight. I want to thank Mayweather for taking this fight.
"There were other names out there, but Mayweather is a boxing person and he made the right choice. I think Maidana earned the right to fight Floyd. He's going to come out and do his best. Just like he did against Adrien Broner.
"Broner was supposed to be the next great thing. What Maidana did to him was something that no one believed could happen. It takes hard work and dedication.
"It takes a great fighter that listens to what his coaches tell him to do and we're going to come out and do our best to please everyone with a great fight and come out with a win. Everyone has a time and it could be this time. No one has a blueprint because no one has ever beaten Floyd."
