Quotes from 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.”
