All good points so far in this thread but to me it's real simple. Canelo hasn't fought anyone this skilled in his career to this point. Good young fighter, absolutely but his skill level is not yet up to par with what he will see in the ring. Canelo has to capitalize on his opportunities, but assuming most here are true boxing fans, you know like I do that he won't have too many chances to do much work against Floyd. Easy Money for Money Mayweather.

I havent seen many "boxers" in Floyd's league. Yea, there are some punchers, and brawlers but this is boxing. He works the ring, the crowd, the refs and the judges! His skills were very apparent this last fight. Asides from being more physically gifted you just cant out box this guy, it's nearly impossible! Im a Floyd fan but a boxing fan first and i must say that his skill set is on another echelon.

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

I am definitely looking forward to this fight without a doubt. I've been a Floyd Fan his whole career because I'm from Michigan and you grow up in Detroit rooting for The Hitman, Lights Out, and The Pretty Boy aka Money May. I know he will win but I feel like he took this fight now which was supposed to be the 3rd or 4th fight in his showtime deal so he could be him before Canelo reaches his potential. Not saying he is scared just think he is smart but it could also be the fact Showtime lost money on the last fight so who knows

Still can't get over the superlatives that Harold Lederman was laying on Alvarez before the Trout fight. I mean you talk about kissing up. Alvarez hasn't earned that sort of talk...........yet.

Yeah, I heard they lost $12 million. That's not great business.

The other rumor going is that ShoTime pressured Floyd to fight Alvarez because of the dismal Guerrero fight losses.

Agree, although Lampley might be worse...other than Kellerman, the main HBO crew is almost insufferable (although better now sans Larry Merchant).

Interesting to hear Showtime lost money from the last fight. After Alvarez, how many more blockbuster fights can Floyd make? Still 4 more fights on that ShoBox deal if I recall...

Matthysse is the only junior welterweight I'd be interested in. Even if Rios beats a "possibly" declining PacMan, I wouldn't waste my time watching Floyd chew him up.

A rehash with Marquez? Bradley?

Showtime might continue to lose money on this deal.

Canelo rematch, Matthyse, Khan and Pac fight after he gets out of his Top Rank deal at the end of 2013.

According to ESPN, the Guerrero fight sold 1 million PPV buys, whereas the Cotto fight sold 1.5 million. Name recognition means a lot. Makes a Pacquiao/Mayweather fight more likely if they both win their next fights.

I think Floyd wins, but he will be in a fight-for more than 4 rounds.
Alvarez has a record padded with individuals i couldnt pick out of a line up with name tags on... I say that to say that he isnt seasoned enough, or really proven in my eyes.

But in regards to his power, judging from his Mosley and Trout fights, hes not the boogie man that some fans would like to make him out to be. He couldnt drop a 'S2S' Mosley and after Trout got caught, he went on the win the round.

Canelo is for sure the bigger man however, not sure thats advantage however considering the stamina issues that seem to creep in to his fights.

If Floyd gives him some of that Robert G. 8th round body work earlier, u could see a stoppage.
