Showtime's Jim Gray spoke with Floyd Mayweather just moments ago in Las Vegas. Mayweather (44-0, 26 KO) is in the final minutes before tonight's Showtime pay-per-view main event against Canelo Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO). For live results, join our round-by-round commentary thread.

Here's what Mayweather said to Gray on the PPV:

"I don't really know too much about his footwork but he's a solid opponent. You've got two undefeated fighters. That's the world wants to see. The world has been anticipating this fight, and I'm in good shape."

"That's what boxing is about, the best fighting the best. I've been in the sport now 17 years. I've been in some tough fights. I'm prepared to go out there and entertain. I'm pretty sure he's doing the same."

"I think my hand should hold up. I keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best."

"I'm pretty sure my dad has a tremendous strategy."
