Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Canelo Alvarez fight is generating the sort of enthusiasm that was not seen so long before the beginning of the fight. The best thing about the fight is the fact that both of them are in great form and come in the fight without any defeat. The two come to the fight unbeaten and the biggest charm of the fight will be to know as to who is actually beaten here. Both the fighters cannot remain unbeaten after the fight. But stakes are far too high for Floyd Mayweather Jr, the best pound for pound boxer of our time who is also called Money for his potential to earn big time money.
Reports suggest that Floyd Mayweather vs Robert Guerrero fight brought unprecedented riches to the biggest boxer of the last two decades. The fight that gave Gurrero some six million dollars actually brought as much as fifty million dollars to Mayweather Jr. If everything goes well, his proceeds from the next fight against Canelo Alvarez will be higher than this amount.
To be true many are calling the choice of Canelo Alvarez as something suicidal for Mayweather Jr. many say that instead of going for a menacing boxer like Canelo Alvarez he should have gone for a harmless fighter like Amir Khan whom he would have easily beaten. For months Amir Khan has been teasing him to incite him to fall and fight him, giving him an overnight publicity that he simply doesn’t deserve. A report while discussing the fight against Amir says, “It would have driven the sport’s hard-core fans mad, but Mayweather would have cruised to a one-sided victory and gladly stuffed his pockets full of Showtime’s money for extremely little risk…By getting Alvarez to sign a deal, Mayweather once again won. This time, it was by knockout over those critics who expected him to take the easiest path”.
Mayweather’s opponent is a hard nosed fighter who minces no words. Floyd Mayweather has amazingly chosen a man who remains undefeated in 43 professional fights. Notwithstanding his achievements Canelo Alvarez, despite 43 pro fights, won’t turn 23 until July and is 13 years younger than Mayweather. A report while talking about Canelo Alvarez’s potential says, “He won’t be fighting a guy moving up in weight, like he did when he bested Robert Guerrero on May 4. Alvarez is a natural super welterweight, and the two-pound concession worked into the contract won’t have much of an impact on the bout. Though the super welterweight limit is 154 pounds, the fighters agreed that the limit at the weigh-in will be 152. To his credit, Alvarez said the two pounds were no problem and readily agreed”.
Compared to other boxers who have fought against Mayweatehr Jr in recent past, he is the toughest. Canelo Alvarez is one of the most ferocious fighters of his age. His right punch is a fighter breaker and many have called Canelo Alvarez as terminator and bulldozer. Besides he comes with a very powerful chin that is able to face even most powerful punches, absorb them and then go for offensive and eventually beat his opponent. He comes to the fight on September 14 as undefeated. But while Canelo Alvarez comes to the fight undefeated and great chin, Mayweather comes in the fight with a great career to boast, he is also undefeated. Besides he brings with him more than a decade of boxing experience and beating the top boxers, most of them who had ruled the boxing world one time or the other. His experience is a huge plus point for the Mayweather Jr. I think that by not choosing Amir Khan he has done a great favour to the Brit boxer who has just got married. A defeat so early in his marriage would have been very difficult for him.
