Mayweather vs. Canelo Tour Quotes: It's A Texas Two-Step

The One


“THE ONE: MAYWEATHER VS. CANELO” MEDIA TOUR HITS HOUSTON AND SAN ANTONIO In San Antonio , Mayweather Hints at Fighting More Than Five More Times;
Canelo Says He Will Not Be Intimidated


DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS – Fans remained the biggest winners as “THE ONE: MAYWEATHER VS. CANELO” press tour continued Monday with two stops in Texas .

In Houston , a couple hundred fans began lining up at 3:00 a.m. for a press conference that started at 1:00 p.m.  By the time the press conference officially commenced at Union Station At Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, an overflow crowd of over 1,000 fans had filled the stadium’s grand lobby to beyond capacity. 


The nine-day, 10-city tour continued Monday night at The Alamo in San Antonio .  The press conference didn’t start until 6:00 p.m., but fans were in line by 7:00 a.m.  Due to a flight delay, Mayweather was an hour and forty-five minutes late and by the time he arrived, Canelo had come and gone.

However, Mayweather provided a little glimpse into his future, saying he may fight more than the five more times after which he has previously said he would retire.

“After my five more fights, guess what?  I think after 49-0 we may stay in this sport a little longer,” he said.  “This September 14, it’s just another walk in the park.”

As he has throughout the tour, Mayweather thanked the fans.  “There is no city like San Antonio ,” he told the approximately 5,000 in attendance.  “You fans have been brilliant over the years.  Without San Antonio , Floyd Mayweather wouldn’t be where he’s at today.  If you don’t know, Mayweather loves Mexico .  Mexican and Latino fans, you know boxing.

“I’m going to sign a lot of autographs and take a lot of pictures because I’m late.  That’s the least I can do for you guys.”

Canelo was his usual classy self at the podium, but he took a couple jabs at Mayweather for being tardy.  

“Thank you everybody for being here.  It’s a great honor for me to be here for a second time.  Last time I was treated like I was at home and that’s what I feel like again – like I’m at home.”  

“I know many of you have been here since seven in the morning.  At six o’clock the press conference was supposed to start, and that’s why I’m here at six o’clock – because I respect you, because you guys respect boxing.  There are Mayweather fans here who also have been here since very early.  I’m here for them too.”  

“He (Mayweather) thinks all the boxers have to respect him and he intimidates everybody, but he doesn’t intimidate me.  I look forward to the fight.’’    

“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).  

Less than 24 hours after going on sale on June 25, the event was sold out, but six MGM Resorts properties will host live closed circuit telecasts of “THE ONE.”  Properties showcasing the event include ARIA, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay , The Mirage, Monte Carlo and New York - New York .  General admission tickets for the closed circuit telecasts are priced at $100, not including handling fees, and are available for purchase at each individual property’s box office outlets and also are available for purchase by phone with a major credit card at 866-799-7711.  Closed circuit ticket sales are limited to eight (8) per person.  Tickets also are available through Ticketmaster by calling (800) 745-3000 or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
