Tonight’s fight will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, and given how explosive the first fight was, this rematch should be a fantastic encounter.
Ahead of the fight, Mayweather has said, “I only got two more fights left and after the next two fights I just want to build the Mayweather Promotions brand. My next fight is in May and my last fight is in September, so a year from now will be my last fight. I’ll still work with my stable of fighters, still build the Mayweather Promotions brand. We have young fighters that we work with.”
However, Maidana wants revenge for his defeat in the original match up between the pair: “I am ready to make history. I am very well prepared. I know him already. It’s going to be a big advantage for me.”
Mayweather has said, “As of right now, my focus is on Maidana. I can’t focus on the other two fights after that. I have to focus on Maidana. After that we can’t say who’s the next two are going to be but I’m pretty sure the next two will be exciting fights.”
