They took photos with fans and then posed for the press with the Gold MGM Lion statue that sits in the center of a boxing ring on display in the lobby.

Afterwards they spoke with the press at ringside in the Grand Garden Arena where the fight will take place on the September 19, 2009.

Floyd Mayweather, Jr. spoke to the press about the fight and his relationship with the media. After his interview, he stopped to take a call and sort out his picks for the football games this coming week.

Juan also spoke to the press regarding the fight and how he plans to counter Mayweather’s longer reach in the ring.  He also joked when asked about his training regiment practice of drinking his own urine (which was featured on an episode of HBO’s 24/7).
