Ahead of Floyd Mayweather's September showdown with Saul Alvarez, the pound-for-pound king issued his rival with a stark warning: that he is unbeatable.

The two fighters came face-to-face in New York ahead of their 11-city press tour which aims to promote what is expected to be one of the biggest fights in history.

Alvarez claimed that, come September 14, there will be a change in power and that Mayweather will have to pass on the torch. However, the reigning world champion was quick to shoot down his opponents claim.

"The Earth is my turf," Mayweather told Sky Sports. "You can put me in any ring and I will always come out victorious."

Alvarez, 14 years younger than Mayweather, is a big fighter and in the prime of his career. He is expected to be the toughest test that Floyd has ever faced.

Mayweather, however, feels confident ahead of their showdown and is looking forward to the test.

"When you're the best you only want to test yourself against the best and that's what the fans wanted to see.

"If you look at the opponents he's faced and the ones I've faced the big difference is experience, but he's done something right to get to this point so he's a guy I can't overlook."
