Mayweather vs Canelo: Photos and quotes from Houston and San Antonio tour stops

Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez were in Texas yesterday, stopping in Houston and San Antonio to promote their September 14 fights.

Floyd Mayweather

"After my five more fights, guess what? I think after 49-0 we may stay in this sport a little longer. This September 14, it's just another walk in the park."

"There is no city like San Antonio. You fans have been brilliant over the years. Without San Antonio, Floyd Mayweather wouldn't be where he's at today. If you don't know, Mayweather loves Mexico. Mexican and Latino fans, you know boxing.

"I'm going to sign a lot of autographs and take a lot of pictures because I'm late. That's the least I can do for you guys."

Canelo Alvarez

"Thank you everybody for being here. It's a great honor for me to be here for a second time. Last time I was treated like I was at home and that's what I feel like again - like I'm at home."

"I know many of you have been here since seven in the morning. At six o'clock the press conference was supposed to start, and that's why I'm here at six o'clock - because I respect you, because you guys respect boxing. There are Mayweather fans here who also have been here since very early. I'm here for them too."

"He thinks all the boxers have to respect him and he intimidates everybody, but he doesn't intimidate me. I look forward to the fight.''
