Eleven-time world champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather and former world champion Marcos “El Chino” Maidana are hitting the road on a four-day, five-city cross-country press tour to officially announce their championship rematch which will take place Saturday, September 13 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas live on Showtime pay-per-view. Both Mayweather and Maidana are preparing for an intense training camp to prepare themselves for what could be a repeat of their unforgettable 12-round May brawl that many called Mayweather’s toughest test to date.
Grammy nominated rapper and Washington, DC native Wale will have the nation’s capital on their feet when the press tour stops in DC. Fresh off his BET Centric Award nomination for his hit song “Love-Hate Thing,” the widely celebrated artist will provide attendees with a one-of-a-kind performance.
Joining the press tour in Chicago will be dancing phenoms, The Monster Kids. Chi-Town’s finest breakdancers – a family of kids aged 6-16 – rose to fame after reaching the semi-finals on Paula Abdul’s “Live to Dance” show. They’ve since captured the nation with performances on Ellen, and at numerous professional sporting events.
All events are OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
