Mayweather vs Canelo press tour: D.C. photos and quotes

FLOYD MAYWEATHER

"D.C. is a fight town. It's been so kind to me in my career. The fans have supported me here since I turned pro and today's turnout was nothing different.

"Canelo is a young, strong champ. It's obvious he's done something right to get to this level. He's a guy I know I can't overlook. When guys face Floyd Mayweather it's a total different level. I'm pretty sure he'll be in tip-top condition. I need to go out there and be at my best and stick to the game plan.

"To be the best you have to fight the best and Canelo is one of the best fighters out there at this particular time. That's why this fight is called ‘THE ONE.'"

CANELO ALVAREZ

"Everything is different...big name, clever fighter. It's the best fighter, the best venue, the best network. Austin Trout was a good fighter, but this is different. You can see with everyone here with the fans and the media. It's not just a fight, but a big event.

"This was the next step to get Mayweather. I'm the type of fighter that if you give me someone who is better than me, it's motivating. It gets the real Canelo. Trout was OK. He was a good fighter, but he didn't impose his will on me. He didn't bring out the best Canelo. Mayweather is the guy."
