LAS VEGAS, NEV.  – Eight-time, five-division World Champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Super Welterweight World Champion and Mexican Superstar Canelo Alvarez kicked off fight week for “THE ONE: MAYWEATHER vs. CANELO” as the two superstars arrived in grand fashion in front of approximately 2,000 screaming fans on Tuesday at the MGM Grand Hotel Lobby.

Canelo’s WBC, WBA and Ring Magazine Super Welterweight World Championships and Mayweather’s WBA Super Welterweight Super World Championship will be at stake this Saturday on SHOWTIME PPV in the most significant boxing showdown in recent memory.

 

Mayweather, who didn’t acknowledge questions surrounding the catch-weight, insisted he’ll still be boxing’s No. 1 draw after Saturday’s showdown.

“He’s not the future,” Mayweather said.  “But he’s still going to be a star after he loses on Saturday.  When I’m in a fight like this I’m not losing.

“You don’t think I could go to the Alamodome and sell it out?  I give Canelo credit for showing up on Sept. 14 and that’s it.”

“I take my hat off to Richard Schaefer; he works very, very hard, him and Leonard [Ellerbe],” said Mayweather when asked about the massive size of the Sept. 14 promotion.  “This is not just a fight, this is what we call an event  These people play a major key to my success. This is the Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions show, and we now run boxing.”

If Canelo comes in over 152 is he fined and how much? Or is that clause in this contract?
