All of a sudden we’re in L.A. and they’re talking big like, ‘Canelo’ is the king,” Mayweather said after taking some hits at promoter floyd mayweather jr v canelo alvarez tickets De La Hoya onstage. Mayweather clearly believes his experience will decide the outcome of his bout against the hard-punching, popular fighter. Alvarez’s trainers believe training to be faster and stronger for the bout at 152 pounds will sway the outcome. Alvarez said Mayweather’s most recent opponent, Robert Guerrero, “did nothing” to threaten the welterweight champion in May.

Alvarez’ biggest advantage is confidence, knowing that he doesn’t cherry pick opponents. Mayweather knows that his success is as much the result of expert matchmaking that avoided the likes of Pacquiao, Margarito, Paul Williams, a prime Miguel Cotto and a not-so-old Shane Mosley, as it is his unparalleled boxing skills. There was a time when I felt that Canelo was tailor-made for Mayweather and that he was being groomed to be Mayweather’s opponent, but after Canelo dealt with the previously undefeated Austin Trout, it became clear that Canelo was no chump. Many fighters known for their power tend to get exposed when they face a slick, defensive guru like Austin Trout. Even if they win they look lost for the entire fight, swinging at air and looking frustrated. But Canelo beat Trout with intelligence.

The other accolade it will represent is that of the best pound for pound fighter. Both boxers go into this fight undefeated.” One question which remains unanswered is what the WBA think of the move by the rival body. Alvarez holds both companies versions of the super-welterweight strap, with Mayweather also the current WBA super champion. Will the WBA now feel the need to try and top this stunt? The Pugilist doubts that anything could, to be honest. Besides, doesnt the WBA have enough belts, with all the super, interim and regular titleholders per weight class?
