In front of thousands at Sunday’s press conference in Mexico City, boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather was asked if he was afraid of losing to Saul Canelo Alvarez.
“I’m not afraid of nuthin’,” said Mayweather. “Floyd Mayweather will win September 14th. I’m not worried about nuthin’. I’m not nervous. I can fight. If I can’t do nuthin’ else, I can fight. I’m the champ. Pound-for-Pound I’m the best and September 14th you’ll see….Right now I just can’t be beat. Maybe 20 years from now, but not right now. It’s just another day for me, September 14th. I never had no worries.”
Canelo stated, “There are a lot of people who don’t think I’m going to win, but on September 14, you’ll see that I will win. I’ve always wanted to be the best in the sport and I’m on my way. I couldn’t let this opportunity go by and I will take advantage of it on September 14. I’m always training. I never stop. To win we have to prepare well and not ignore the little things.”
