MARCOS MAIDANA ON FLOYD MAYWEATHER CLASH:

"Thanks a lot to everybody who supported me around the world! I'll give it all to give you a victory on May 3rd," wrote WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana, who addressed his followers on Twitter shortly after undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd "Money" Mayweather announced him as his opponent for his highly-anticipated return to the ring. Though Maidana is extremely happy that he landed the coveted assignment, he's not quite ready to cash in on his Mayweather Sweepstakes lottery ticket.

"I'm just happy to face Mayweather, but it doesn't feel like I hit the lottery like he said. Only beating him, it will," he added. On May 3, Maidana will get the opportunity to hit the jackpot if he can duplicate the success he had against Adrien Broner and score another upset victory over the biggest name in the sport.
