The super fight between Floyd “Money” Mayweather vs. Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is being billed as “The One.” Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer explained the name at Monday’s press conference at Times Square in New York City.
“This is ‘the one’ fight everybody wanted,” said Schaefer. “The one fight everybody waited for. Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather is the one…he is highest-paid one, he’s the best one, he’s the pound for pound one, he’s the one in a generation and maybe the one in a lifetime, but will he be ‘THE ONE’ at the end of September 14 or will we have the next one, the new one, Canelo Alvarez?
“Canelo is the Mexican James Dean. He has a cult-like following. He’s the one Mexico has been waiting for. He’s the one who will give Mayweather the biggest test of his career. He’s the younger one, he’s the bigger one, he is the stronger one…and he is the better looking one. Sorry Floyd, just kidding.
“The one thing I know is that September 14 the world will be watching who will be ‘THE ONE.’
