Mayweather-Maidana II Press Tour Begins 7/14 In NYC

By Jake Donovan

It took a while for the official announcement to come out that Floyd Mayweather has agreed to a rematch with Marcos Maidana, but further details have since been free-flowing. 

The sport's leading pound-for-pound and box-office king returns to the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, facing Maidana on September 13 in just the second rematch of his storied career.
Prior to hitting training camp, the ring rivals and their respective camps will embark on a five-city nationwide tour, beginning July 14 in New York City. 

There will be no rest for the weary, as the tour immediately jets to Washington D.C. later that evening, following by a two-stop Tuesday in Chicago and San Antonio. The tour will conclude Thursday, July 17 in Los Angeles. 

Upon completion of touring the nation, the fighters will head to camp for their Showtime Pay-Per-View-televised rematch. Mayweather escaped with a majority decision in their first fight this past May, arguably the closest fight of his career. 

All press events during the five-city tour are open to the public. Grammy-nominated rapper Wale - a D.C. native - will perform live in his hometown on Monday evening, while young breakers The Monster Kids will show their moves when the fighters hit Chicago on Tuesday.
