Mayweather-Canelo Press Conference Quick Quotes

By David Robinett

Richard Schaefer, CEO, Golden Boy Promotions: This fight already generated the biggest live gate in the history of boxing. Based on the reception and interest we have received I am convinced now that this fight will break the all-time pay-per-view record as well.

Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President & General Manager, Showtime Sports: September 14th will be one of those rare occasions the two biggest stars of the sport, the two biggest fan bases, meet. We have America’s #1 fighter, Floyd “Money” Mayweather versus Mexico’s #1 fighter, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

Oscar de la Hoya, President, Golden Boy Promotions: I know for sure that Mayweather will bring his “A” game. As always he will be in great shape. He will bring everything to the table. But I am convinced, convinced that Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez will win on September 14th.

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, WBC and WBA Super Welterweight Champion: In boxing, everybody has their time, and this is my time.

Floyd “Money” Mayweather, WBC Welterweight Champion: Canelo is a young, strong champion. Mayweather loves Mexico. I’m going to continue to work hard and dedicate myself to my craft. I just sit back and think about it at night, you know, when I think about certain fighters, people say ‘Mayweather, you know you’re facing Canelo?’ And I say, ‘Yeah, but can you tell me just ten world champions he beat? Just ten?’ That’s all I ask.”
