If you have written him off, you are off the mark. Manny Pacquiao is still in, and you should wait for Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Canelo Alvarez fight result
Who will win the fight when Floyd Mayweather Jr faces another unbeaten boxer Canelo Alvarez in September? An overwhelming number of people will say that Mayweather will win hands down without much of a trouble. But there are other people who think that the win may not come that easy Mayweather’s way in September. They believe that a boxer at the twilight years of his career and a very advanced age of 36 years may not be able to face the ferocity of a 23 year old boxer’s punches and attack, more so when it is a boxer who has become adept in beating his opponents. Though given his form in the last two fights it seems a very difficult task to predict Canelo Alvarez’s win and so most of the boxing analysts are siding with the easy pick, obviously Floyd Mayweather Jr.
But the sort of background and wins we have seen from Canelo Alvarez in the past few years, suggest that writing him off two months before the fight is utter nonsense. This is notwithstanding the fact that Mayweather has the backing of the like of Freddie Roach and even Mike Tyson, the former boxing great.
Mike Tyson, the former champion has predicted a win, but has emphasized that the win will not be easy for Mayweather ‘Money’. During an interview with ESPN’s Friday Night Fights, Tyson said he expects Alvarez to give fans a show, but suspects Mayweather’s experience will carry him to victory. “This guy is gonna hit him, but it’s just difficult to bet against Floyd if you’re really honest with yourself… First off, you have to admit that he’s the best of his time. The best of his generation. He beat everybody in three, seven divisions, regardless. I’m not familiar with how many, but he’s conquered a mountain of divisions. You have to rank him the best fighter of the generation, at least”, Tyson told ESPN.
In the meantime Manny Pacquiao still seems to be a burden of Mayweather Jr’s head. The five-time winner of ESPN’s ESPY Fighter of the Year Award, Floyd Mayweather had once spoken about his dream of coming one to one with arch-rival, Manny Pacquiao. And now the pugilist has maintained that the only way to fight would be when Pacquiao signs a deal with the Mayweather Promotions.
Though he has been trying to belittle Manny in every possible way, but obviously he hasn’t managed it. Not shy and well aware of his position to dictate the terms, Mayweather said: “Everybody’s like, ‘Aw, Pacquiao,’ but I’m just letting you know he’s not getting a fight with me. The only way he’s getting the fight with me is if he signs with Mayweather Promotions. He’s got to give me fights with Mayweather Promotions. If he don’t give me no fights under Mayweather Promotions, then he’s not getting the fight. That’s how it is working now, because the ball is in my court. The ball has been in my court. I have been the A side.” The star who is commanding a huge chunk of presence in the sport at the moment is all set to lock horns with the Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in on September 14 in Las Vegas. And in case Mayweather wins than his stakes are expected to go further up.
Manny Pacquiao is working hard to make a successful comeback in Macau in November. He is struggling t get past his two-fight loss and a one-punch knockout by Juan Manuel Marquez that not only resulted in a fall of his rankings but also made him a butt of jokes that went viral on internet. In what is being termed as a comeback match, the pugilist would be facing Brandon Rios on November 23 in Macau, China.
