Las Vegas, NV. – MARCOS MAIDANA, Former Welterweight World Champion
“I just know that I have to win. I’m focused on winning. I am going to take out any doubts in my mind about the first fight. I’ve adjusted now and I think I’ll be ready.
“I haven’t talked to Carlos Rios or Carlos Baldomir about their Mayweather fights but I have watched their fights. I noticed that being aggressive and attacking him is what makes him uncomfortable.
“I think I did get tired in the first fight. I have to pace myself a little better and this time around I will be better.
“If the knockout comes great, but I’m ready to go the distance as well. I’m ready to make history.
“I have to use my distance a little more and pick and choose my punches. I wasted too many punches last fight. I have to work my distance correctly and get leverage.
“I think Floyd got pressured by the press and I think that he knows the first fight was close so he’s giving me the rematch and I have to take full advantage.
“I actually had two full months to prepare this time. I worked very hard and that’s probably why I look a little skinnier this time.
“I think Floyd is going to run but I’m going to have to do a good job of cutting off the ring.”
