MIKE STAFFORD:

"Behind good losses always come a good win and next Saturday night Adrien's going to get an excellent win," stated world-class trainer Mike Stafford, who spoke at media workout about Adrien Broner's anticipated return to the ring on the May 3 undercard of Mayweather vs. Maidana. Check out what else he had to say!

MIKE STAFFORD, Broner's Trainer

"Behind good losses always come a good win and next Saturday night Adrien's going to get an excellent win.

"Sugar Ray Leonard, Muhammad Ali, even Bernard Hopkins. All these guys took losses but they came back and were victorious. We just have to get back to a world championship shot again.

"Camp is going well. He looks just as good as he did for the Maidana fight, he just has to maintain his weight at 147.  He was at 139, so he had to eat more.  Now he doesn't have to eat as much.

"I was surprised by the way Adrien got hit by Maidana. He'd been hit in the past, but I was surprised that Maidana hit him like that.

"Everyone wants to fight Floyd for the money. If Maidana had lost to Adrien his career would have been done, but if Maidana loses to Floyd, he will still have plenty of guys to fight. The timing was right for Maidana.  After his victory over Adrien, Floyd noticed him and realized that it would be a good fight."
