Mayweather vs. Canelo video: Pre-fight press conference gets messy after media pulls out for 'Money' shot

What was supposed to be a press conference media scrum unfolded like a running of the bulls.

Stop pushing! Stop!

Guys, take it easy!

Back up! Back up!

Those were the cries from the combat sports media following Wednesday's (Sept. 11, 2013) pre-fight press conference for "Mayweather vs. Canelo," held in anticipation of this Saturday night's epic boxing fight on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV), which takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sept. 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Headlining star and boxing's top pound-for-pound fighter, Floyd Mayweather Jr., was on hand to answer questions following yesterday's presser. Unfortunately, the swarm of reporters could not be contained and bumrushed "Money" as he "put his defense up," prior to barking at one of his media handlers.

His bodyguards looked dazed and confused.

Things were much more civilized for Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, who tries to be the first pugilist in history to defeat Mayweather when they lock horns this weekend in "Sin City." Those fight fans just here for the press conference carnage can skip to the 5:58 mark.

Good times.
