Building up for a major fight that needs little hyping, Floyd Mayweather and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez will sit in the same room one night before the real showdown.
The two prized fighters will clash on Saturday, Sept. 14, at Las Vegas' MGM Grand in one of boxing's most highly promoted bouts in years. According to Forbes' Kurt Badenhausen, the fight is projected to generate a record $132 million in pay-per-view revenue, with 2.5 million purchases.
If the report is anywhere close to correct, a whole lot of people are giddily waiting for Mayweather and Alvarez to enter the ring. Both boxers are undefeated, but Mayweather has much more experience under his belt, while Alvarez sports a powerful hook that could knock anyone out.
On Friday, the two competitors will participate in the customary final weigh-in, where they'll both set the gloves aside to step on the scale.
