Mayweather vs Canelo: Photos and quotes from Mexico City

Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez hit Mexico City today for the biggest stop on their promotional tour.

Floyd "Money" Mayweather

"It's great to be in Mexico. The turnout here and all throughout this tour has been amazing. Canelo has a lot of fans here in Mexico. We expected that, but I don't fight for one country. I fight for the whole world.

"I have faced a lot of great champions in my career and I can honestly say that my toughest opponents have been Mexican.

"One thing I know is that Mexicans know boxing.

"I got into this sport to be the best and I'm pretty sure Canelo got into the sport to be the best, but the difference is that I was born to win and I will die to win.

"I don't know how this fight is going to play out. That's what makes this match-up so interesting. We'll all find out on September 14.

"I'm the pound-for-pound best. I'm ‘The One,' and on September 14, you'll see.

"I commend Canelo. He's a young, strong champion. I congratulate his team, but when you face Floyd Mayweather you face the best.

"Right now I just can't be beat. Maybe in 20 years he'll be the king, but not right now. September 14 is just another day for me."

Canelo Alvarez

"I want to thank everyone for coming out here...all of you. I've always said that we had to come to Mexico (on this tour). There's no other place like Mexico. I'm so happy.

"There are a lot of people who don't think I'm going to win, but on September 14, you'll see that I will win.

"I've always wanted to be the best in the sport and I'm on my way. I couldn't let this opportunity go by and I will take advantage of it on September 14.

"I'm always training. I never stop. To win we have to prepare well and not ignore the little things.

"I feel the size of this event. I feel the emotion, but I am calm and on September 14, I'll be okay.

"I began fighting when I was 15 years old and at that time I wasn't ready to fight him. Now I'm ready. I always go in with a winning mentality. I'll prepare to win."
