Tuesday's big fight week arrivals were all about Kansas City versus Las Vegas.

Victor Ortiz, a K.C. area native,  arrived in understated, midwest fashion while Floyd Mayweather, a longtime resident in Sin City was surrounded by an entourage of 20. The best boxer of his generation arrived in a $500,000 Maybach 62 S.

Each told stories about how fight week has unfolded so far.

Ortiz chuckled when he talked about begging his trainers to take him to the local In-and-Out Burger while Mayweather bragged about winning $100,000 with several bets on the Monday Night Football tilt between the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots.

Mayweather is a notorious favorite and over player at the sports book, so the Pats 38-24 was custom made for his betting habits.
