In my contract it always states that I will come to Mexico for conferences and fights, because Mexico is one of a kind. There are many people who do not believe that I will win on September 14, and one of those who does not believe, is Jose Sulaiman. But on that date I will show all of you that in boxing we all have our time and this is mine," said the Mexican fighter.

Then came the best pound for pound fighter, Floyd Mayweather, who repeated the same speech he gave in New York.
“I want to thank everyone for attending and who have been fantastic. Thanks for promoting boxing. Mexico has produced great champions, and thanks for supporting the fight. Mayweather loves Mexico. I have faced great champions and the most difficult ones have been Mexicans. See you all on September 14,” said Money "Mayweather.
"September 14 will be just another day for me. Mexico knows boxing and knows that he will be facing the best” concluded Mayweather.
