Broner vs Maidana press conference quotes: Adrien Broner vs Marcos Maidana

Esther Lin/SHOWTIME

ADRIEN BRONER

"If he makes a mistake and I have a chance to get him out of there I'm going to get him out of there. If I just beat him to death, then I beat him to death.

"Who doesn't want to see a young star on the rise like Adrien Broner fight a guy like Marcos Maidana, a hard puncher, a knockout artist with 31 knockouts? Who doesn't want to see that? There's always that ‘what if?'

"It's going to be a hell of a fight. I don't go for knockouts but I really feel I'm going to knock this guy out; I'm going to be his first stoppage. I'm going to stop this guy and we're going to move on to the next one.

"Maidana is a good fighter, a hell of a fighter, but he's not on my level. My career is going to the rooftop. It's going to skyrocket. But this is just the beginning. It starts here.

"I don't even think I've showed all of my abilities yet. Maidana is a different type of fighter and he might bring something else out of Adrien Broner that the world hasn't seen yet. Or he might be a regular fighter after I make him look the way I make him look.

"Every boxer wants to be where I am right now. I am the person who is going to take over boxing after Floyd Mayweather. Everybody wants this position. So I don't get mad when I hear that Keith Thurman wants to fight me - he's supposed to. Who doesn't want to be where I am.

"On Dec. 14 we're worried about Maidana. I respect his coach; I respect him as a fighter. People say I'm being bashful, I'm being respectful. I can't talk trash to someone who doesn't speak English. He's looking at me crazy right now and I don't know if he's faking or not. He's a very respectful guy so I have to respect him, but on Dec. 14 I'm going to beat his ass. I'm going to beat his ass for sure. We can be friends after that.

"I'm not coming to play. It's going to be the AB show and I'm going to be victorious. We don't think about losing.

"I don't watch tape but I've seen him a couple of times. Everybody knows Maidana makes a lot of mistakes and you can't make mistakes with Broner.

"You never know. Maybe I have to sit in there and brawl it out with this guy for 12 rounds. Maybe I mess him up in two. Maybe one."

MARCOS MAIDANA

"I want to thank my team for working hand-in-hand with me, for all their help and support and for working so close with me. Thank you to Sebastian Contursi, Robert Garcia, Cecilio Flores and my right hand, my cousin "Pileta," that's been with me all the way.

"I'm ready for this fight; I've trained hard and I'm certain I have what it takes to come out victorious on Saturday.

"They might say Broner is one of the best, but I don't think he is. He's definitely different to any other opponents I've fought, but I'm prepared. I'm ready for him.

"I'm going to hit him hard, very hard, with all I have and I'll get busy with him. I hope he's ready, because I am.

"This is the hardest fight of my life. I respect Broner, but I don't underestimate him. On Saturday, I'll do my part; I'll do what I came here for - to fight with my heart and do my best.

"I'm not a trash talker. I'm not that kind of guy and I'm not going to get into that. It's just not my thing."
