Press Tour Video of Mayweather and Ortiz

Before Floyd Mayweather Jr and Victor Ortiz laces up their gloves to fight in the bright lights of Las Vegas, HBO followed both boxers across the United States to prepare for one of the biggest fights of the year. From the heart of the big apple in New York City to Los Angeles, California both fighters hyped up their upcoming clash by telling everyone what a good fight this is going to be.

The Mayweather vs Ortiz fight is promoted mainly by Golden Boy Promotions and HBO-PPV. It will be a big boxing event this coming September 17 inside the luxurious MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. The WBC Welterweight of Ortiz will be on the line.

After 16 months of inactivity from the sport, undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr is still considered as the best pound for pound boxer in the world today. He has won 41 fights with 25 knockouts and the only person who came close to beating him was Oscar dela Hoya. That fight ended in a SD (Split Decision) Victory in favor for Floyd.

See how the great superstar and the young champion relentlessly promoted their fight - including a few scuffles - just to show the world that this will be a mega-event.

Erik Morales may fight Jorge Barrios in the undercard while young Mexican Star Saul Alvarez will fight Alfonso Gomez inside the Staples Center. And yes, the Mayweather vs Ortiz mega-event will be a one-of-a-kind two-venue PPV fight. The fight will happen on a weekend after the Mexican Independence Day because Mexicans are always expecting a high-caliber boxer to fight on this day - this time it will be the prospect star Saul Alvarez.

The massive crowd during the Mayweather vs Ortiz Press Tour was a clear indication that the MGM Grand Arena will be a sell-out. HBO-PPV (pay-per-view) buys will also be huge because of the impact of Mayweather's entertainment factor.
