Mayweather vs. Canelo press conference photos gallery from New York City on June 24

Top pound-for-pound boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. joined Saul "Canelo" Alvarez for a special pre-fight press conference in New York City on Monday (June 24) ahead of their championship boxing showdown at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sept. 14, 2013.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. will put his WBA Super Light Middleweight (154 pounds) title, along with his top pound-for-pound fighter status, on the line when he collides with WBA and WBC Light Middleweight Champion, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, in a high-profile boxing match scheduled to take place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sept. 14, 2013.

Both fighters were in attendance for a special pre-fight press conference on Monday (June 24) in New York City, hyping their upcoming title fight and littering the "Big Apple" streets with confetti.

"Money" (44-0) recently abandoned his post at HBO for a more lucrative deal with the Showtime network (details here), and finally made his pay-per-view (PPV) debut for the cable television network with a 12-round unanimous decision win over Robert Guerrero last month in "Sin City."

Mayweather remains undefeated ... for now.

Alvarez, meanwhile, most recently topped Austin Trout on the judges' scorecards to unify the 154-pound belts and establish himself as one of the best in the business. The young Mexican phenom, also undefeated, has 30 knockouts in 42 wins.

Will we see a changing of the guard in September?
