Mayweather vs Guerrero: Floyd Mayweather workout photos and quotes

"I'm a winner. I like to perform. I like to entertain, and that's what it's about. It's about going out and giving the fans what they want: Excitement." - Floyd Mayweather

FLOYD MAYWEATHER

"I've got to give thanks to everybody; there are so many different sponsors, Corona, Valvoline, MGM Grand and so many other people that have supported me throughout the years, all my fans, the media, my followers on Twitter. To SHOWTIME, CBS and all the other networks that have been showing love to me.

"SHOWTIME has let me do a lot of creative things. ‘30 Days In May,' ‘ALL ACCESS' and we have another documentary coming out on CBS. I have a new relationship and a new marriage and I'm happy now.

"Freedom is very, very important. You can be locked up and be rich, but it's just like being poor if you don't have freedom. So, freedom is very, very important. That's how I feel.

"I have another big fight on May 4th and it is against Robert Guerrero, ‘The Ghost.' This guy is very, very confident and he believes in himself. We know he has only one loss, but they say a true champion can bounce back.

"It's obvious he did something right to get to this point. It's obvious he did something right in the Andre Berto fight. He dedicated himself to his craft, which is boxing. He stayed focused and he listened to his corner.

"I want a fighter to come in confident. We don't want the odds to be crazy, but the odds will always be crazy because I've proven myself over the years. But we want a fighter like Robert Guerrero who's confident and believes in his skills. Only thing that we can do is push me to the limit and take me to that next level. That's what it's about.

"Now he [Robert Guerrero] got the fight with me. The game plan is to go out there, be smart and get the victory the best way I know how, continue to give the fans what they want to see, work hard and set record-breaking numbers.

"I'm a winner. I like to perform. I like to entertain and that's what it's about. It's about going out and giving the fans what they want - excitement.

"I've faced every style so it's not hard for me to make an adjustment. I just have to go out there and see my dad's game plan is going to be.

"Like I always say for every fight, everybody had a game plan. All 43 of my opponents had a game plan and all 43 opponents came up short. So, I could care less what my opponent has to say. There isn't a blueprint on how to beat me. No one has found a way to break the Mayweather code.

"Being a legend, wanting your name mentioned in the mix of other fighters' names, that's why I work so hard right now. I've been fighting since 1987. I've been a professional for 17 years. I've been dedicated to my craft.

"I don't think the layoff will affect me. My dad is back in my corner. My dad is my lead trainer, but I'm also working with my uncle Roger. The Mayweather family, as of right now, has good chemistry.

"Camp has gone tremendously. My weight has already been made, and I'm ready to fight. I feel good and, like I said, I couldn't do it without the support from the fans. When I was locked away, the fans wrote me letters and sent cards and I really appreciated that.

"This is world championship boxing and it's always blood, sweat and tears. It's not a sport if there isn't blood, sweat and tears. I'm happy that my dad is back in my camp and we're going strong. It's good working with him. If we have a problem and we're not seeing eye-to-eye, we pull each other to the side, talk about it and we get on the same page."

RICHARD SCHAEFER, Golden Boy Promotions

"It's a Mayweather fight and a Mayweather fight is the Super Bowl of boxing.

"A Mayweather fight means a sold out venue and great buzz in Las Vegas. It's going to be one of those nights when The Money Team will show up against Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero.

"Of course Floyd Mayweather is in a class of his own. He's undefeated and pound-for-pound the best fighter and as he always says, ‘43 have tried and 43 have failed and this is going to be number 44.' So we'll see.''

LEONARD ELLERBE, Mayweather Promotions

"Mayweather vs. Guerrero is the biggest fight the year. Everyone is excited, and we want the fans to be engaged. It's going to be a great, great fight.

"It doesn't matter what the manager says and it doesn't matter what the promoter says. It will be up to the fighters come May 4th.

"He's [Floyd Mayweather] a lot more laid back, and he values freedom. Having been incarcerated was definitely a life-changing experience for him. It was something he hadn't experienced before. No one wants to be in that situation. There's nothing to prepare you for something like that. The environment and conditions he was placed in made it tough. But that's behind him. He did his time and it's time to move on."

J'LEON LOVE, Middleweight Prospect

"Having Floyd [Mayweather] as a mentor and seeing him train in the gym everyday is such a special opportunity for a young fighter like myself. He is the best in boxing and just being around him and watching him train the way that he does has already taught me a lot.

"I'm ready to go on May 4th and I'm so grateful to Mayweather Promotions for giving me the opportunity to open the pay-per-view portion of the event. I've been training hard. I'm prepared to go in there against Gabriel Rosado and give it my all.

"I don't take anything for granted. I feel this is a moment in my career that I will remember for a long time and I'm looking forward to showing Floyd and boxing fans worldwide that they can count on me to become a world champion in the near future."

BADOU JACK, Light Heavyweight Prospect

"Eddie [Mustafa Muhammad] is a great trainer. He's like a father figure to me. He's like family. He's a great motivator, so having him in my corner makes me very confident.

"He [Floyd Mayweather] is one of the greatest fighters of our era, so it is a great feeling for a guy like that to have your back."

LUIS ARIAS, Super Middleweight Prospect

"Camp is going really well. I'm definitely excited. Obviously this is a huge platform for me and a great opportunity for me. It's an exciting part of my life to be only 4-0 and be fighting on such a big stage, but I'm ready.

"I'm young and I'm hungry. This is what I wanted.

"Sparring with Floyd is an unbelievable thing. My confidence is at an all time high."
