FLOYD MAYWEATHER, President of Mayweather Promotions
 
"These are going to be two hungry lions in the ring, and that's what it's all about. It's about giving the people entertainment. Adrien Broner is flashy, flamboyant and outspoken. He's still young and has a lot to go out there and prove. He doesn't just want to show that he's one of the best, but that he's the best in the sport.
 
"You have to go out there every day and prove you're the best. Adrian Granados is always in action-packed fights and he brings excitement. This is a great matchup. These guys know that they aren't fighting pushovers. It's the best versus the best.

"Both fighters have great trainers and great teams. I've helped pave the way for these guys, but so have these trainers. They've helped bring these men to this point. I think they both have potential to be stars.
 
"The sport of boxing is so interesting and there are so many great fights coming up. This is an important fight for the sport in a stretch where there are a lot of exciting matchups.

"I'm proud of Adrien Broner. He's had a minor setback leading to major comeback. He's going to come back better than ever. But he can't overlook this opponent. You can look up and all of a sudden you're down.
 
"No one can overlook Adrian Granados. It's a really good matchup. This guy definitely reminds me of Marcos Maidana. I don't know if he can punch like him, but the style and aggressiveness is there. He's always in action packed fights.

"Adrien has speed and power, but I'm looking to see Adrien throwing combinations. That's what some fighters lack nowadays. We think too much about 'Money' Mayweather, and forget about 'Pretty Boy' Floyd. He had a 90 percent knockout rate. I think we need to see an aggressive Adrien that will throw combinations while staying smart.
 
"I love being a promoter and giving back to young fighters. I didn't become a promoter to make money. I did it because I want to make money for fighters and make their dreams come true. My company is easy to work with, because we're only focused on the fighters.

"I want both fighters to give Cincinnati and the whole world a great fight. You're young, hungry and dedicated. Show the world what you're about."
