Moments ago inside of the main lobby of the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, four participants for this weekend’s ‘Ring Kings’ event made their grand arrivals to the city of Las Vegas.
It was a packed scene as former three-division champion ‘Sugar’ Shane Mosley was first to arrive, followed thirty or so minutes later by WBC junior middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. The 40-year old Mosley will challenge Alvarez, a world champion at just 21 years of age, on Saturday night.
In the evening’s main event, WBA junior middleweight champion Miguel Cotto defends his title against undefeated superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. Cotto and Mayweather were the final two pugilists to arrive to the MGM Grand today, and the crowd went wild upon their entrances.
With the arrivals of Mosley, Alvarez, Cotto, and Mayweather, it is official that fight week in Las Vegas is again upon us.
