“If there’s one thing people know about me, it’s how much I enjoy performing on a big stage and in this case, the big screen,” said Mayweather. “Fans in the theaters can expect a great night of boxing from me and the rest of the stars on the show that night, but I have no doubt that my star will shine the brightest."

The undercard will also feature Mexican Josesito Lopez taking on fellow Mexican Jesse Vargas. The event will take place on Saturday, September 17 and will begin at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT.

Based on the expert predictions on Mayweather-Ortiz, Floyd is heavily favored to win. The fight is expected to be very entertaining in the first few rounds but Mayweather will prevail in the later rounds. Ortiz is a younger and bigger boxer compared to Floyd and he will give the undefeated American a lot of problem when they fight each inside the ring but he is foreseen to lose the fight.

Watch Floyd Mayweather vs Victor Ortiz in the movie theater - if you have not bought the MGM Grand tickets - and you’ll never regret it.
