Re: Floyd Mayweather v. Canelo Alvarez 9/14/2013 MGM Grand

Yeah i'm definitely hyped for this fight. A little word of advice guys, go see the fight at your local movie theater. It's waaaay cheaper than PPV(like 10 bucks a ticket i think) and the atmosphere is awesome. I've been doing this for a while and i recommend it. A lot of people don't realize they show big fights at movie theaters.

Also, floyds saying he's going for the knockout.

Honestly, i could see him trying to make a statement, but it'll be difficult to do because of the weight disadvantage, still, a stoppage isn't impossible for him. I honestly thought he would of KO'd/stopped guerrero if he hadn't messed up his hand. And he could of got Cotto in the last round if he was more aggressive. Mayweather has a LOT more power than most people realize, nobody just walks through his shots. Mosley said he hits as hard as canelo.

When Floyd says he is going for the KO, that means the fight will go 12 rounds.

Actually he doesn't usually say he's going for KO's before fights. He always says if the KO comes he'll take it, but he's not going out of his way to get one. Which is why i'm interested by him saying he's going for a KO this time around. I can believe he's gonna try to make a statement in this fight, considering a lot of people said he would duck canelo.

And you could also take it to mean Floyd is a little nervous as the fight approaches.

LOL, so Floyd being a little nervous is out of the question? Recent comments by Shane Mosley, who praises Mayweather (and rightly so), but says Alavarez has a great shot to win this fight. You don't think that might have set off Mayweather's comments?

Nah, i don't think it's impossible, i just don't get how him saying he's going for a knockout means he's nervous is all. And the reason i don't know about mosleys comments affecting mayweather is because he's had other fights where people/boxers/analyst have given his opponent a great shot to win against him. I mean he could be nervous, i just don't think he is.

The same reason you surmised that he was going for a KO to make a statement. We're speculating. The KO comment could have been nothing more than Mayweather pre fight bluster. Floyd will be more than happy to walk away with a decision.

Interesting comments by Mosley and interesting logistics for Canelo. Alvarez has been staying at Mosley's house for the last month and training in the ex champ's home gym.

Mosley says that:
  1. Canelo is stronger, better body puncher
  2. Canelo and Floyd have equal punching power and hand speed
  3. Canelo's defense is underrated

I don't know what to make of Shane's analysis.

Fair, but i still find it interesting and think he's gonna try to make a statement. It could be pre fight hype, but like i said, floyd doesn't usually say he's going for KO's.

I would agree with mosley on 1 and 3. He actually showed some nice head movement against trout. On point 2, he and floyd may possibly have equal punching power, but i don't think Canelos hands are that fast. They're faster than people think though. I think Canelo has some deceptive quickness. He's not just a slow plodding fighter. I actually have always liked Canelo, one of my favorite up coming fighters.
