On Monday, July 14, undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather and former welterweight champion Marcos Maidana will embark on a multi-city press tour to promote their anticipated September 13 rematch, which will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and televised live on Showtime Pay-Per-View. The tour will kick off in New York, making stops in Washington D.C., Chicago, and San Antonio before arriving at the final destination in Los Angeles.
Grammy nominated rapper and Washington, D.C. native Wale will have the nation’s capital on their feet when the press tour stops in D.C. Fresh off his BET Centric Award nomination for his hit song “Love-Hate Thing,” the widely celebrated artist will provide attendees with a one-of-a-kind performance that they will be talking about until fight night.
Joining the press tour in Chicago for a memorable performance will be dancing phenoms, The Monster Kids. Chi-Town’s finest breakdancers -a family of kids aged 6-16- rose to fame after reaching the semi-finals on Paula Abdul’s “Live to Dance” show. They’ve since captured the nation with performances on Ellen, and at numerous professional sporting events, and will surely add to the MAYHEM in their hometown.
