Finally I hope someone knocks this **** out and keeps him off his pedestal.

I disagree with the initial statement, I don't think Canelo is that great.

Nevertheless 'Money' getting his ass kicked would be great.

Watch his defense, all these fighters are faster than Canelo:

Canelo's only shot is to land a serious punch and then capitalize on it quickly, otherwise he's going to spend his entire night frustrated and walking into Mayweather's right hand, losing by decision.

Soooo much this! You have men who train 8-10 hrs a day for months trying to hit the man who's 2 feet in front of you. Then you have mayweather who can duck, dodge and slip everything you can muster up. It truly is an art form.

Mayweather is art in motion to the trained eye. I trained in boxing for a year so I'm not pretending to be an expert, but the guy puts on a masterpiece display of precision and defense. He's surgical, intelligent and still commands the ring even when defensive. How quickly people forget his form follows in the footsteps of Ali and the great Sugar Ray.

Pay no attention the layman bra. I mean sheet I was literally exhausted myself after watching Mayweather v. Cotto. He pulled out literally every trick in the boxing book and some I didn't even know existed. The training he does to match against Cotto that long has to be ridiculous.

If Alvarez can close the gap well enough to land some hard hitting combinations to the body and head, he can definitely win. The keyword for Canelo is controlled aggression, he can't get frustrated and throw wasted shots or low % shots, he'll just leave himself open to be countered all night, whilst he rests/recovers, Mayweather has no offense. If he dictates and picks his own spells to fight in, he can definitely win, no doubt. He also needs to get into Mayweather and shake him up early, a big first round is a must, to make Mayweather think twice/reconsider/hesitate about taking advantage of openings.

Anyway to those saying Mayweather is not boring, lets not kid ourselves, it doesn't matter how you spin it, Mayweather's style is not exciting nor the most appealing to an amateur or casual. The most exciting will always be an all or nothing heavy handed Brawler that leaves their chin hanging in the air and swings for the fences, a big heart e.t.c(I say this as a longtime boxing fan and competitive amateur boxer).

Edit: For the record Mattyhsee KO is a guarenteed lock, I don't care how low priced it is, it's free money.

If Alvarez slows down his work rate and Mayweather steps on the gas in the 9th/10th/11th/12, this is actually a good possibility. I don't think Floyd has the power to Knock him out though, Mayweather TKO in the late rounds is a good shout

That's what I'm leaning towards. I think by the 6th round Mayweather will be landing a lot of punches. I do not subscribe to the hype of Alvarez.

I think Floyd's superior defense will yet again prove too much for Alvarez. I think he will get frustrated and get jabbed to death. Granted I'd love to see Floyd with great defense AND power but his entire strategy is to completely boggle your senses and confuse you. Once this happens its over.

No way he should lose to Canelo, an if he does nobody better say age, thats BS, he is coming off his shortest inactivity ever and fighting a guy with dry lips and skin who looks like he sapped his body of every fluid.

I'm buying into the hype... Why is everyone so confident with Floyd on this one? He's not fighting at a favorable weight class. As said above, canelo needs to get after mayweather early and win the first round with limiting Floyd's counter opportunities. The true test for canelo is going to come in the later rounds with his conditioning. He can't afford to get sloppy and let Floyd capitalize like he did against cotto. I don't think Floyd's felt power like canelos in awhile either, I have canelo winning.

- too slow
- too raw
- lacks stamina
- lacks experience
- not fighting in the best condition

floyd will pick him apart. But of course, theres always a chance Canelo wins by KO just like what happened in the Pacquiao-Marquez fight. Nothing is impossible in boxing.

09-13-2013, 04:15 PM
Only chance Canelo has in this fight is to knock Floyd out early, before round 4 or 5

After round 5 Floyd will get Canelo's pattern down, and will slip all of his punches. Also Canelo lacks stamina, and will get tired towards the end of the fight

Most likel outcome is Maywheather via ud

09-13-2013, 04:26 PM
The only factor in this fight is Floyd's age. The question for all his fights from here on out will be, "Will Floyd's age show itself tonight?". If not, everyone loses. There's no one as technically skilled as Floyd in boxing at the moment. His style is susceptible to the same fate as guys like Roy Jones, though. When age rears its ugly head and that athleticism suddenly gets sapped, that's when Floyd will lose (if he fights long enough for that to happen). One thing to note is he didn't look as sharp in his last two fights.

So what you're saying is...if he wins hes the same Floyd Mayweather but if he loses you are gonna devalue it instantly with the excuse that he's a shot fighter? That idea just happens to coincide with the fact he's actually facing a real test in terms of opposition for once

I wouldn't say Pac/Marquez was even close... Pac is a brawler where as Marquez is a counter boxer, Marquez got to see Mannys game plan and tendencies 3 times, it was a matter of time before manny got his chin busted. I agree with you on lacking stamina and experience, but he's pretty quick and he has power that Floyd hasn't felt in a long time.

Yes, because Canelo is no where near Floyd's level technically.

I have no idea why people like you are saying this is a 'real test for once'. Canelo is outclassed in every department aside from punching power, thus a punchers chance.

This is boxing you fuking phaggot not fuking taekwando, raw power has always been a legit game plan. You don't win by throwing the prettiest punches or by displaying great ineffective technique. The idea is to make your opponent leave the ring in a stretcher or dominate them thoroughly by landing more punches, neither has any more validity than the other. Canelo goes to the school of throwing punches with bad intentions and Mayweather to the school of the sweet science.

If Canelo wins Mayweathers legacy is going to be destroyed and if M wins, his legacy is going to be bolstered, it was always a risky fight, there's no room for excuses like "he landed one of his lucky bone breaking shots"

sensiblebrah
09-13-2013, 04:54 PM
Canelo is a lot better than people give him credit for, he's got a good +/- ratio of hitting and not getting hit, just behind Mayweather, he rehydrates to 170 and will have at least a 15lb functional weight advantage over Floyd on fight night, he's also faster than people think.

Agreed on strength. Combination speed, maybe....but Mayweather's whole style revolves more around concussive shots rather than flurries.

Because the absolute here is that Canelo will out weigh Floyd by ~20lbs and Floyd is a natural 135'er that has gone up in weight over his career but couldn't hit the 152 limit for this fight. The 'drained fighter' thing is up in the air. Canelo may or may not be affected by it. We don't know how he feels for sure.

???

Alvarez is a power puncher that tries (edit: 'likes' to box is a better phrase, not tries, because it has worked) to box. That's not the biggest threat stylistically. If anything that gives Floyd more room to work within the weight disadvantage. If he doesn't put Floyd down within ~6, it may turn into a Hatton repeat.

He's been in the top 10 by dominating very limited one dimensional fighters for years. This is the only fight with the serous potential of being out of his comfort zone/control, which is why i'm surprised he took this fight. Believe me if he loses this fight it's going to hurt him bad in years to come, boxing historians will hold factor it into his career without a doubt. How can you relegate a fighter that retired undefeated after winning his two biggest Career defining fights like Calzaghe beneath a guy that lost on the biggest stage versus one of the few fighters that could actually expose his physical weaknesses?

If Amir Khan fought only soft hitting, boxing technicians/pressure fighters he'd be a dominant world champion by now.

That's exactly the point, Alvarez is an over sized, hard hitter at 154. Floyd isn't in any danger of being out boxed, but the opportunity of being purely overpowered is a very realistic threat for this fight

I think the Odds for an Alvarez KO are way overpriced, but again this is boxing and anything can happen.

If you notice something, from his credentials, to his fighting style to his record to his talent, the boxers only able to relate to Mayweather are Ali, Robinson and Louis (I derped by forgetting him). I agree Mayweather fought lessor opponents, but that doesn't mean he's still not the most technically sound boxer in history save Robinson if we could truly see his prime. You can see this either by comparing tapes, or by statistics he's possibly the best precision fighter of all time http://espn.go.com/boxing/story/_/id/7780088/floyd-mayweather-jr-measures-boxing-greats
