Mayweather (41-0, 25 KO) has not fought since May 2010 when he survived an early scare against Shane Mosley to come back and boss the fight, while Ortiz (29-2-2, 22 KO) is entering the mega events of boxing for the first time after defeating Andre Berto in a great fight in April, winning the WBC welterweight belt.

This fight is only getting a two-city promotional tour for press conferences, and tomorrow the duo will be in Los Angeles. But HBO and Golden Boy are both planning a huge promotional push overall, including taking advantage of Time Warner's overall media network. It all starts today, though -- you may not like Mayweather, but it's an event when he fights, and today will be the first time he speaks in public to more than one outlet in a long time. Join us!
