'Tough times don?t last, tough people do' - Floyd Mayweather Jr

Floyd Mayweather Faces 32,000 Canelo Fans in Mexico City: ?I?m Not Nervous, I Can?t Be Beat?

Fortunately the door was closed without further incident. Mayweather returned his attention to the interview and our producer breathed an almighty sigh of relief. Prior to our meeting, Mayweather and Canelo had been squaring off in Atlantaas Centennial Olympic Park, part of a nationwide tour through 11 cities to promote their fight. It is all part of the game now that Mayweather is his own promoter. aThis is boxing,a he said. aBlood, sweat and tears.

Its going to be easy, Mayweather said Monday as he took a seat in a banquet room in the W Hotel in Times Square. But Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) wasnt talking about his chances for victory. He was discussing the prospect of signing several cases of boxing gloves for promotional purposes and the media laughed at the mix-up. Since Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KOs) speaks little English, Mayweather kidded that he wouldnt be able to taunt his opponent like hes done throughout his career. I mean, hes not going to know what Im talking about no way, Mayweather said. Ron Antonelli Mayweather takes the stage for the first stop in the press tour to promote his fight with Alvarez.

In each of the promotional stops so far on the 11-city tour to hype their September 14 pay-per-view clash, Canelo fans have outnumbered Mayweather fans by a significant amount--- even in Mayweather's home town of Grand Rapids, Michigan. On Sunday, the tour stopped in Mexico City and, as expected, the Mexican fans welcomed their conquering hero, Canelo Alvarez, with open arms. Police estimated that approximately 32,000 fans turned out at the historic Monumento de los Ninos Heroes to support Alvarez and to take a glimpse at the curiosity of Floyd "Money" Mayweather. The fans were respectful to the five-division world champ, but it was clear that they had come to see and support their red-headed battler from Guadalajara. "There are a lot of people who think I won't win, but come September 14, everybody is going to realize [I can]," the square-jawed Alvarez told the partisan crowd.
