“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.”

Floyd Mayweather (44-0, 26 KO's), an eight-time world champion in five weight
divisions, remains boxing’s biggest attraction and the highest paid athlete in
the world, wowing crowds and generating huge pay-per-view numbers each time he
steps into the ring. During his extraordinary career, he has amassed wins over
world champions such as Diego Corrales, Jose Luis Castillo, Arturo Gatti, Zab
Judah, Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, Juan Manuel Marquez, Shane Mosley and
Miguel Cotto. His last fight against Four-Division World Champion Robert
Guerrero on May 4, 2013 not only showed his superior boxing skills, but it
also revealed his determination and dedication to stay the best in the sport.

At only 23 years of age, the pride of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, Canelo
Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) has emerged as a Mexican icon, standing side-by-side
with his country’s greatest sporting legends. A fighting phenom, Canelo has
fought professionally since 2005 when he was only 15 years old. By 2011, he
earned his first world championship by defeating Matthew Hatton for the WBC
Super Welterweight belt. Canelo has since successfully defended his title six
times defeating Ryan Rhodes, Alfonso Gomez, Kermit Cintron, Sugar Shane
Mosley, Josesito Lopez and, most recently, with a spirited unanimous decision
win over Austin Trout, setting up his fight against Mayweather.

The fighting pride of Philadelphia, Danny “Swift” Garcia (26-0, 16 KO’s) has
ascended to the top of the boxing world in recent years with increasingly
impressive performances that have shown off his skill, power and heart. Since
winning the world title against Erik Morales in 2012, Garcia has defended his
crown with wins over Morales (in a rematch), Amir Khan and Zab Judah,
cementing his place as one of the best in the world.

Trelew, Argentina’s Lucas “The Machine” Matthysse (34-2, 32 KO’s) built his
fearsome reputation with hands of stone that have sent opponent after opponent
crashing to defeat. Currently the owner of a six-fight winning streak with six
knockouts, Matthysse is coming off of a spectacular third-round knockout of
World Champion Lamont Peterson that ignited the boxing world and set up this
showdown with Garcia.

“THE ONE’ is as big as a fight can get and what better way than to see it
larger than life in the movie theater?” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden
Boy Promotions. “We are so thrilled to once again team up with NCM Fathom
Events to showcase this fight on the big screen.”

NCM Fathom Events, Mayweather Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions first
teamed up in September of 2009 to bring the highly successful presentation of
Floyd Mayweather vs. Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Marquez fight to theaters,
followed by four more Mayweather bouts including “May Day: Mayweather vs.
Guerrero” earlier this year.

“Mayweather’s fight with Canelo will mark the sixth fight of his career to be
shown in movie theaters,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM
Fathom Events. “Since Mayweather first appeared on the big screen in 2009,
boxing fans have continued to fill theaters. This bout will be the toughest
match-up for Mayweather yet…a mega-watt boxing champion fighting to keep his
title against the fastest rising contender in many years.”
