Photo: Mayweather and Canelo go face-to-face

Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez are getting the pre-fight hype started for their September 14 bout, and went face-to-face for the first time.

In case you still can't believe it's actually going to happen, here's the first official face-to-face meeting between Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez ahead of their September 14 mega-fight on Showtime pay-per-view (photo via Golden Boy on Facebook):

Mayweather (44-0) and Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO) will be meeting in what will undoubtedly be the biggest fight of 2013, and one of the biggest sporting events, period. The fight, titled "The One," is expected to do monster numbers, possibly the biggest since Mayweather's record-setting win over Oscar De La Hoya in 2007. And as far as the gate in Vegas goes, they may even be able to top the gross total brought in from ticket sales, which would set a new all-time record.
