Floyd “Money” Mayweather went home Wednesday and an estimated 2,000 enthusiastic fans, friends and family members were there to see the legendary fighter and his upcoming opponent, Canelo Alvarez, at Houseman Field in Grand Rapids, Mich. It was the third stop of an unprecedented 11-city, two-country, nine-day media blitz to promote Mayweather’s eagerly anticipated Saturday, Sept. 14 showdown with Alvarez.
Floyd Mayweather: To the city of Grand Rapids, you believed in me when no one else would. I want to thank all my fans and Canelo’s fans, but one thing we know, fans can’t fight for you.
Immediately following the event, Mayweather, Canelo and their teams flew to Chicago where they will host the second of today’s two events at The Chicago Theatre (5:00 p.m. CT). The media tour continues tomorrow, Thursday, June 27, at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta.
