"After the fight with Robert Guerrero was called off, I kept training. I knew another fight would come around. We came to Argentina and I asked [adviser] Sebastian Contursi to get me an opponent," said Maidana (30-2, 27 KOs). "I was watching videos of Petrov. I think he's a good fighter. I'll press for the knockout but I won't be desperate to get it. I'm going out there to fight and win either by knockout or by decision. The people are going to be happy. "
"It's a great opportunity for me. When it was offered to me, I knew that I had to do it now. I feel great and happy," Petrov stated (29-2-2, 13 KOs). I was offered the chance to fight for the world title and I accepted. I have always followed Maidana and I've always liked him. He is a seasoned and aggressive fighter. I do not think of failures in the ring or worry about judges. I go out there and do my job. It would be foolish to tell you what I plan to do in the ring. I will rely on my boxing and dod what I do."
