    FLOYD: "In 18 Years I Haven't Brought My Best Out Yet"



    FLOYD MAYWEATHER AND MAYWEATHER PROMOTIONS FIGHTERS MEDIA WORKOUT QUOTES
    FLOYD MAYWEATHER, 10-Time World Champion
    "In 18 years I haven't brought my best out yet. Being around the sport for so long, I have a lot of experience. I've boxed my whole life. I've never worked a job.
    "As I get older I want to settle down and be with my family. I've had enough fun.
    "It feels good to be in camp. Everyone on the team is ready to go out and do what we do best.
    "This is a give and take type of sport. Al Haymon has done a good job. Leonard Ellerbe has done a good job. Now it's time for me to go out and do what I do.
    "Maidana deserves the opportunity. He's a champion with an 80 percent knockout ratio. He deserves this fight.
    "Everything isn't about speed. Everything in boxing and life is about timing. I'm a fighter that likes to take my time and be smart. Some fighters like to be reckless. You see what happens when fighters are reckless.
    "Boxing is like chess. Every move has to be thought about before you make it. I like to study my opponents first.
    "I'm not going to do a lot of moving when I get in the ring. I'm coming straight ahead.
    "Everyone is supposed to say they want to fight me. Right now Maidana is the guy that I can't overlook.
    "I love all my fans that support me from Argentina. It's the sport of boxing, so the best have to fight the best."
    LEONARD ELLERBE, CEO of Mayweather Promotions
    "Mayweather is always ready for anyone.
    "Maidana has tremendous punching power and can knock you out at any moment.
    "Maidana should be ready for a toe-to-toe battle.
    "THE MOMENT will be a tremendous fight. A must see event.
    "Floyd has a unique talent that I've never seen before in my life. He's better now than he was 12 years ago.
    "Floyd's preparation elevates him above the rest.
    "J'Leon has matured as a fighter. This is going to be a very tough fight for him."
    "I have every bit of confidence that this is a challenge that J'Leon will prevail in and then be in a great position to challenge for the world title."
    RICHARD SCHAEFER, CEO GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS
    "Floyd Mayweather did it again. He picked the most dangerous opponent he could have.
    "It's going to be a thrilling fight. Maidana is ready and he's going to come to try to knock out Mayweather.
    "It is always amazing to be at a Mayweather workout. The turnout is something to see.
    "As a boxing fan, I cannot wait for May 3. THE MOMENT is going to be an unforgettable night of boxing.
    "The whole card from top to bottom is something that no one is going to want to miss and the pay-per-view portion is one of the best, if not the best we have ever put together."
    J'LEON LOVE, Super Middleweight Contender
    "I'm going to bring my A-plus game.
    "I'm not scared of a guy Periban's size.
    "This is graduation season. I'm ready to fight for the world title.
    "I know I'm going to beat Periban. I feel it in my heart."
    RONALD GAVRIL, Undefeated Middleweight Contender
    "My opponent is not a problem for me.
    "I'm preparing for a show. He better be ready.
    "It's an honor to train next to Floyd. I learn from the champion in every way.
    "Keep your eyes on me. The show is going to begin."
    ASHLEY THEOPHANE, Welterweight Contender
    "I don't worry about my opponent. I fight my fight.
    "Experience counts. I've been here before. I'm beyond ready.
    "I've never been knocked out before. It's going to be an action-packed fight.
    "I'm one win away from the world title. I'm focused.
    "It's all about getting the W.
    "I'm good for another few years. I'm still young and hungry."
    LANELL BELLOWS, Super Middleweight Prospect
    "It's just another day at the office. We do what we have to do.
    "I'm working harder now. What happened yesterday is yesterday.
    "I always strive to push myself further.
    "He has to be fast enough to hit me. No mater how big or small.
    "Expect a hungry man. Nothing but the very best.
    "If I touch you there's a chance you may be going down.
    ANDREW TABITI, Undefeated Cruiserweight Prospect
    "Never give up. I didn't think I would make it so that's all I have to say.
    "It doesn't stop here. I'm trying to get to the next level."

    Re: FLOYD: "In 18 Years I Haven't Brought My Best Out Yet"

    18yrs & better than ever right now, when everybody from his generation has either retired, died, or is a shell of themselves he's still at the top of the game....


    People underestimate how smart the man is in the ring, he pretty much enters every fight as the older man, the smaller man, or the one with the least punching power, and the most boxing miles on the odometer but his Conditioning & Ring IQ picks up where his physical gifts don't...

    Agreed, though I don't think his physical gifts have eroded much, if at all. He's very genetically gifted and will probably be fast into his fifties.

    Who can beat him, though? It's hard to find a real challenge.

    I don't believe Lara is a threat. People may say, should Thurman suddenly explode to #1 P4P, that Floyd ducked him, even though he's not a viable challenger at this point, kinda like the Paul Williams situation.

    Who else? GGG. It's contractually impossible, not to mention the fact that GGG has never fought at 154 let alone 147...

    Sergio Martinez, same thing. He's tied to HBO.

    Regarding the Pacquiao situation, "I think people will say why didn't they fight each other, and blame both guys to be honest with you. Because the first negotiation we were against the blood test, and it was kinda our fault that the first time it didn't work."

    - Freddie Roach.

    Bradley isn't a threat, I think we all know that now. Neither is Marquez.

    Who else do we really have?

    I agree with you, I don't think anyone now or in the last 20 years beats him but that is where the conundrum begins. We don't know because he never got in the ring with some of the guys that appeared to be able to push him for whatever reason. He is in the catbird seat right now though because most of the competition around him right now is not prepared for a step up to his level. With the exception of being caught with the "Antonio Tarverish" type punch, it is hard to see Floyd not finishing his career with a 0 at the end.

    Unfortunately for Floyd, unlike most sports boxing weighs the merit of your competition almost as much as being a winner. This will always be the hole in Floyd's resume and it is a fair criticism.
