Mayweather and Ortiz, arrive at the MGM Grand for their fight on Saturday

Both met with a grand reception of the boxing fans were former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and current WBC welterweight world champion Victor Ortiz on their arrival at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, for their great fight this coming Saturday. Remember that more than six months we do not see inside the ring the former pound-for-pound king Mayweather after his successful fight against former champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley. Mayweather said that he still feels strong and his ring skills remain sharp
, even after a 16-month lay-off.

Although many do not satisfied how the five-division champion won against Mosley, but Mayweather considered Ortiz as a great challenge for him. The current champion is ten years younger than Mayweather, and a skilled southpaw fighter. The unbeaten American boxer is guaranteeing that the fight will not last the whole 12 rounds.

The Mayweather vs Ortiz undercard also includes a showdown for the vacant WBC super-lightweight title between Mexico's Erik Morales, 51-7 with two drawn and 35 knockouts, and Argentina's Lucas Matthysse, 28-2 with 26 knockouts.
