But as a boxing fan, who do you think will win?
Well, here I am again, predicting a future fight. The usual stuff I do in this blog to every fight that I cover.
Let me begin with what are at stake on this fight.
For Mayweather, he stakes his crown as the number one pound-pound boxer and that “O” in his ledger, which he protected all these years. More than that, he risks also his front sit, as the main draw of the sport. And he also risks his plan to stay undefeated, while fighting the remaining four fights of his 6-fight mega deal with Showtime to the bigger and younger Alvarez.
For Canelo, what is at stake is bigger than what he will gain if he will win this fight. He can gamble everything he has at this early stage of his career for greater gains—to be “The One” in boxing. That means bigger and bigger payday and glory.
With the above being said, plus being the bigger, younger and hungrier fighter, can this be enough motivation for Canelo to beat Mayweather?
Well, I think the answer is NO.
Canelo’s advantages will not be enough to beat the skill-set of Floyd. The pound-for-pound kingpin dealt successfully in the past, the same advantages his previous opponents had.
Not taking anything away from Canelo as a fighter, I think the only way he can win this fight is to land a ‘lucky-punch’. He has the punchers chance because I believe he hits harder than Floyd. If Canelo can land the same punch Mosley did in the second round against Floyd—Canelo will win. He knows how to finished a hurt opponent that’s for sure.
You know and I know that Canelo cannot outbox nor outsmart Floyd. That is, what it is. If he has to win, he needs to knock out Floyd or Floyd will cruise to another unanimous victory.
Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. vs, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez both not tasted defeat but on September 14, somebody’s “O” has got to go.
Boxing experts also pick Mayweather Jr. over Canelo. Check out this post of Kelsey MacCarson of The Sweet Science.com compiling the prediction of more than 50 boxing experts.
