Today at 3:00 pm EDT from New York, BLH and Showtime Sports bring you a live stream of the Floyd Mayweather vs Canelo Alvarez press conference, officially announcing their September 14 fight in Las Vegas, which will be broadcast on Showtime pay-per-view.
The fight is going to have a huge promotional tour, with 11 cities in two countries covered in short order. This is going to be without question the biggest fight of 2013, and could be the biggest fight since Mayweather's win over Oscar De La Hoya in 2007.
Mayweather (44-0, 26 KO) and Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO) are two of boxing's biggest stars -- maybe its two biggest right now, with Manny Pacquiao's star on the decline and Alvarez's on the rise -- and it's a fresh matchup that boxing fans, casual and diehard alike, wanted to see. We're getting it, and it all kicks off today.
Here's another stream in case the YouTube stream fails for any reason, via UStream:
