Mayweather: I'm A lot Stronger For Maidana Rematch

Boxing superstar and 11-Time World Champion Floyd Mayweather, who faces Marcos “El Chino” Maidana in the main event of “MAYHEM: Mayweather vs. Maidana 2” on Saturday, Sept. 13 live on SHOWTIME PPV® from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, was interviewed by Steve Farhood.

“I think I have gotten much stronger in this training camp [for Maidana rematch]. I’m making sure that my body is stretched the right way. Every camp is different, but I feel comfortable and I’m pretty sure my opponent is ready to fight because I am. All I try to do is to stay positive and get good work in," Mayweather said.

“I am able to make adjustments and adapt very, very easily. I’ve made adjustments before, even with my last rematch almost 12 years ago against [Jose Luis] Castillo. I’m in tip top shape and am a lot stronger this fight than when I first fought Maidana. My conditioning is also exactly where it needs to be.

“If you look back at the fight, I think it was very exciting for the first three or four rounds and out of 12 rounds I would say he won three rounds, but I dominated for nine rounds. The fans, critics and people are so used to me winning 11, 12 rounds or knocking a guy out. To have an opponent actually put up a good fight for four rounds [is something that is unusual in a fight of mine]. All throughout the fight I was boxing and being sharp and Maidana was constantly being dirty.

“All I can do is go out there and win and be the best that I can be. I can’t look for any help from the referee. I strictly believe that there will be an even playing field. I want the referee to do his jobs on both ends.

“I feel good, every time I go to training camp I feel good. I think this time I am going to display something totally different from the first fight. I don’t think that age plays a factor. All I have to do is keep my composure, be smart and be the same Floyd Mayweather."

[QUOTE=MisanthropicNY;14908150]Floyd is only willing to be tested by USADA which is suspect...[/QUOTE] USADA allows 4:1 test ratios, so they let you use steroids, just not that much lol

[QUOTE=MindBat;14903540]Major difference is Floyd is willing to be tested. Some guy with the MP initials refused to be tested until The Mexican Dynamite unleashed the one punch fury. Big difference. .[/QUOTE] Floyd is only willing to be tested by USADA…
