“I love that so many of my fights have been shown in movie theaters. It’s something that I wanted to bring to the fans for a long time,” said Mayweather. “It’s my job to give the fans the best entertainment possible. The fact that they can see my fight against Canelo in theaters is another opportunity for me to continue to be creative and give back to my fans. When I fight, it’s a big event and I want people that can’t come see me fight to be able to see it on the big screens. Entertaining and pleasing my fans is what my fights are all about.”
