It’s officially fight week in Las Vegas as local superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his upcoming opponent Victor Ortiz made their grand arrivals today inside of the MGM Grand. Mayweather will challenge Ortiz for his WBC welterweight trinket this Saturday in one of the biggest fights of the year and one of the more compelling matchups for Floyd in recent memory.

Dubbed ‘Star Power’ the Mayweather-Ortiz HBO Pay-per-view event will also showcase a pair of junior welterweight clashes when young Jesse Vargas faces off with Josesito Lopez while Erik Morales guns for a title in a fourth weight class against fellow Mexican Pablo Cesar Cano. Adding more appeal to the card, Saul Alvarez will defend his WBC junior middleweight crown against Alfonso Gomez in a dual-site attraction from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
