Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana, who face each other on Saturday night, both arrived into the MGM Grand earlier today in Las Vegas. The two were greeted by swarms of fans and media and posed for photos before sharing some thoughts about the fight.
“We’re five days away from another big event; this bout is about two fighters coming together giving the people what they want to see,” said Mayweather. “Maidana is hungry, he’s ready and he has a great knockout ratio. It’s all about keeping composure and sticking to the game plan.
“Saturday night you’re not going to see the same Floyd Mayweather. I’ll be right there going toe-to-toe.”
Maidana, who arrived much earlier than Mayweather, was also ecstatic to see so much support.
“To see all these people here supporting me is amazing,” said a smiling Maidana.
“I know people think I’m going to lose, but I come to win and I’m not afraid of anybody or anything.I have the support of the Latino people and I’m coming to win.”
