The media tour continues tomorrow, Wednesday, June 26, with stops in Grand Rapids, Mich., and Chicago.

 FLOYD MAYWEATHER:

“D.C. is a fight town.  It’s been so kind to me in my career.  The fans have supported me here since I turned pro and today’s turnout was nothing different.

“Canelo is a young, strong champ.  It’s obvious he’s done something right to get to this level.  He’s a guy I know I can’t overlook.  When guys face Floyd Mayweather it’s a total different level.  I’m pretty sure he’ll be in tip-top condition.  I need to go out there and be at my best and stick to the game plan.

“To be the best you have to fight the best and Canelo is one of the best fighters out there at this particular time.  That’s why this fight is called ‘THE ONE.’”

CANELO ALVAREZ:

“Everything is different…big name, clever fighter.  It’s the best fighter, the best venue, the best network.   Austin Trout was a good fighter, but this is different.  You can see with everyone here with the fans and the media.  It’s not just a fight, but a big event.

“This was the next step to get Mayweather.  I’m the type of fighter that if you give me someone who is better than me, it’s motivating.  It gets the real Canelo.  Trout was OK.  He was a good fighter, but he didn’t impose his will on me.  He didn’t bring out the best Canelo.  Mayweather is the guy.”

“THE ONE: MAYWEATHER VS. CANELO,” a 12-round fight for Canelo’s WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine Super Welterweight World Championships and Mayweather’s WBA Super Welterweight Super World Championship taking place Saturday, Sept. 14 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, is promoted by Mayweather Promotions, Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo Promotions and sponsored by Corona, O’Reilly Auto Parts and Valvoline.  The mega-event will be produced and distributed live by SHOWTIME PPV® beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.  The event can be heard in Spanish using secondary audio programming (SAP).
