Mayweather vs Canelo press tour: Photos from Grand Rapids, Mich.

Floyd Mayweather was back in his hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan, today to promote his September 14 clash with Canelo Alvarez.

Floyd "Money" Mayweather went home Wednesday and an estimated 2,000 enthusiastic fans, friends and family members were there to see the legendary fighter and his upcoming opponent, Canelo Alvarez, at Houseman Field in Grand Rapids, Mich.

The third stop of an unprecedented 11-city, two-country, nine-day media blitz to promote Mayweather's eagerly anticipated Saturday, Sept. 14 showdown with Alvarez at the MGM Grand Garden Arena which will be produced and distributed by SHOWTIME PPV® had the look and feel of a state fair or carnival. There was a marching band, cotton candy, snow cones, and bouncy houses to play in.

Those in attendance included 300 children who were bussed in from the Grand Rapids Public School System summer program. Mayweather is an alumni of the Grand Rapids school system.

We will find out shortly if Mayweather and Canelo changed clothes for their Chicago presser, which came later in the same day.

No matter what you think of press tours, I have to admit, the dedication to promoting this tour has been extremely impressive.

What I've heard is that Mayweather received a fair amount of boos in his hometown, too.
