The fighters spoke to hundreds of media from all around the world as the anticipation continues to grow for this once-in-a-lifetime event that combines the worlds of boxing and MMA for one spectacular fight.

Here is what the participants had to say Wednesday from KA Theatre at MGM Grand:
 
STEPHEN ESPINOZA, Executive VP & General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports
 
"SHOWTIME PPV is the home of big events and we've teamed up with MGM and Mayweather Promotions to bring fans the most exciting and memorable fights in sports history. We have brought record breaking event after record breaking event; These are events that the world watches and makes history. No event is bigger than this one. Two of the biggest personalities in sports meeting in a once in a lifetime event.
 
"This will be the most widely distributed event in PPV history. This event will be distributed in over 200 countries and might grow to 225 countries by the time we're done. That's a broader distribution than virtually any other event in combat sports history. We are well on our way to being a record-setting event in many categories."
