Floyd Mayweather to Fight Canelo Alvarez on September 14


Boxing fans are actually getting the fight they want for a change. Undefeated welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KOs) announced on Wednesday that his next fight will be against undefeated Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez  (42-0-1, 30 KOs). The two men are the top fighters under Golden Boy Promotions, so it is going to be a highly anticipated fight. The bout will be at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Mayweather announced the news on Twitter:

The fans have been asking for this fight since Alvarez solidified his standing as one of the best in the world, and at 22 years old he could very well be the future of boxing.

Mayweather stormed through Robert Guerrero in his last bout earlier this month, while Alvarez unified the 154-pound titles in his last outing on April 20 against Austin Trout.

    Although Canelo was impressive vs trout, showed patience with his offensive attack, and defense with great head movement, he was gassed for the last quarter of the fight, and that same poor conditioning would result in nothing but a TKO loss to mayweather in a late stoppage. Canelo will swing away and mayweather will counter and counter and counter some more. All that power means nothing if you cannot hit your opponent. Brilliant match making for the causal fans , but hardcore should already feel reassured on whats going to happen…..still the best matchup available.
