CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- April 4, 2014

Fathom Events, Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions are pleased to
present boxing's pound-for-pound superstar, pay-per-view king and WBC
Welterweight World Champion Floyd "Money" Mayweather facing the dangerous,
power-punching WBA Welterweight World Champion Marcos "El Chino" Maidana on
Saturday, May 3 at 9:00 p.m. ET / 8:00 p.m. CT / 7:00 p.m. MT / 6:00 p.m. PT /
5:00 p.m. AK / 3:00 p.m. HI. “THE MOMENT: Mayweather vs. Maidana” will be
broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to select theaters
nationwide in an event that will pit the masterful talent of Mayweather
against the power of the Argentine slugger, Maidana. This 12-round world
championship bout may prove to be Mayweather’s toughest fight ever.

The co-main event of “THE MOMENT: Mayweather vs. Maidana” features British
superstar and former Unified Super Lightweight World Champion Amir “King” Khan
taking on former World Champion Luis Collazo in a 12-round welterweight bout.

Also featured on the card is an exciting junior welterweight bout featuring
former World Champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner against the hard-hitting
Californian Carlos Molina. Rounding out the card is a super middleweight
matchup between unbeaten J’Leon Love and former title challenger and Mexican
Olympian Marco Antonio Periban of Mexico City.

Tickets for “THE MOMENT: Mayweather vs. Maidana” are available at
participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. For a
complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the Fathom Events website
(theaters and participants are subject to change). The event will be broadcast
to more than 520 select movie theaters across the country through Fathom’s
Digital Broadcast Network.

“Fathom Events continues to give fans the unique experience of showing my
fights on movie screens across the country. I’m grateful that Fathom believed
in my vision a few years ago to bring them to theatres,” said Mayweather. “I
have no doubt that my fight against Maidana is going to be the type of fight
that no one has seen me in, and seeing it on the big screen will make the
experience that much better.”

"The fight against Floyd Mayweather on May 3 is the most important of my
career, and I'm excited that my fans that can't watch the fight at the MGM
Grand can see it live in movie theaters around the United States,” said Marcos
Maidana. “This is going to be a big win for me against Mayweather, and it
deserves to be seen on the big screen."

Undefeated Floyd "Money" Mayweather, (45-0, 26 KOs), a 10-time world champion
in five weight divisions, reaffirmed his worldwide popularity when he faced
then- undefeated boxing phenomenon Canelo Alvarez last September. The
mega-event, which set the record as the highest grossing pay-per-view event in
television history with over $150 million in revenue, showed once again that
Mayweather's drawing power is unlike any other.

Thirty-year-old Marcos "El Chino" Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs) stunned the boxing
world in December when he defeated up-and-coming superstar Adrien Broner with
an unforgettable performance. Maidana first emerged on the world scene in
2009, when he won the interim WBA Junior Welterweight World Championship with
a stunning sixth-round technical knockout over Victor Ortiz. In the 2010 Fight
of the Year, Maidana lost to Amir Khan, but he regained the belt with another
classic against future Hall of Famer Erik Morales in 2011. In 2012, Maidana
joined forces with renowned trainer Robert Garcia (2012 Trainer of the Year)
and has since gone undefeated at 4-0 with 3 knockouts.
