Maidana: I Have To Attack Mayweather Early Like Broner

Marcos Maidana, who was in attendance at the StubHub Center in Carson, spoke with SHOWTIME about his major assignment next Saturday, May 3, against Floyd “Money” Mayweather live on SHOWTIME PPV (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT), after the opening bout of the telecast.

“I’m very happy to see this crowd here cheering me on. There is no doubt this is going to be a very difficult fight against Floyd Mayweather, but I am very prepared for this fight.

 “There is no doubt that Floyd Mayweather has a great defense, but I have a great attack and that is what I will use. 

“I need to do the same thing that I did with (previously unbeaten Adrien) Broner.  I need to go out from the get-go and attack him. I know it will be more difficult with Floyd Mayweather but I am ready.

“I am surprised and shocked at the same time seeing all the press that has been following me but I am very tranquil and prepared."

When asked what the best moment of his career has been thus far, Maidana said, “The best moment is the (fight with Victor) Ortiz."

Mayweather is a fighter. People get it confused because his primary objective is to box smart and take his time. However, when attacked, he responds with fury. Marcos Maidana needs to know that a dogfight with Floyd Mayweather isn't gonna…
