Talk heating up between Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez

By Evan Hilbert |

Two of boxing's biggest superstars will meet Sept. 14 in one of the sport's biggest bouts in years when Floyd Mayweather and Canelo Alvarez will face off in a battle to determine the world's best boxer.

Showtime's All-Access provides exclusive looks at the lives of both fighters -- their similarities, their differences, and, most of all, their respective desire to win.

"Here I am with the most important opportunity of my life," Canelo says. "I'm very happy. I'm grateful to the people who support me wherever I go. I need to repay them with a victory."

Mayweather is, unsurprisingly, more bombastic in his day-to-day life. Still, the undefeated fighter dishes out some respect to his likewise perfect counterpart.

"He's a young champion, and he's earned his right to be up here with me," Mayweather is seen saying to a crowd at Madison Square Garden. "And come September 14, it's the best versus the best."
