Marcos Maidana: This time I will knock him out

With weeks of hard training behind them, we enter fight week for Floyd "Money" Mayweather and Marcos "El Chino" Maidana at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

 

Take a look back at some of the best verbal sparring that has gone on between Mayweather, Maidana and their camps:

 

Floyd Mayweather, Eleven-time, Five-division World Champion

 

From the press tour:

 

"My hand got raised so I don't need to make any adjustments. He needs to make some major changes and probably get a new trainer if he wants to have a chance against me."  

 

From his media conference call:

 

"I didn't say it was tough or it was hard to make adjustments. I said I took my time. If you look at the interviews, I said he came out kind of wild, and I took my time and kept my composure. I can make adjustments and I can adapt to any style."

 

From his media day:

 

"Watching a fight from the outside is totally different than from what's going on in the inside. He may have been attacking but I was countering, throwing body shots. That affected his thought process and he fought different after that."

 

Marcos Maidana, Former Welterweight World Champion

 

From the press tour:

 

"Floyd can say whatever he wants about me. He knows that I gave him the toughest fight of his life. The only difference is this time I will knock him out."

 

From his media conference call:

 

"This time around I'm training to win. I know what to expect. I know Mayweather now, his style, what he brings to the table. I'm coming to win. I have more concentration, no excuses whatsoever."

 

"Yes, this fight I'm not going to respect him. I'm not going to respect him. I'm going to go at him, and I want him to fight like a man. Stop crying like a little [expletive] and fight."

 

From his media day:

 

"Right after the fight, I honestly felt that I had won. I was the aggressor and the one looking to attack. But, the judges saw differently but I am still happy with the way I fought. I absolutely thought I won the first fight, and I will win again on Sept. 13."
