“THE ONE” we’ve been waiting for, Floyd “Money” Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez, was formally announced at a press conference in front of thousands of flag-waving, enthusiastic fans on a hot, summer Monday in Times Square in New York City. The streets were lined with camera-clicking fans for hours, while others watched the first stop of an 11-city, two-country, nine-day media tour that continues Tuesday in Washington, D.C. from their office windows high above “The Crossroads of the World.”
The fighters were introduced individually, posed for the fans and news cameras, produced an intense face-off and spoke at the podium.
