Floyd Mayweather To Fight Canelo Alvarez Sept. 14

005 Floyd Mayweather5-30-2013You wanted it, you're going to get it.

Shortly after 10 PM ET on Thursday evening, Floyd Mayweather Tweeted the news about his next fight, and foe.

“I chose my opponent for September 14th and it's Canelo Alvarez. I'm giving the fans what they want. It will be at the MGM Grand.”

Showtime boxing boss Stephen Espinoza confirmed to TSS that the Tweet is the truth, that Floyd will test the kid in Vegas.

The pound for pound ace, who looked as good as he has in God knows how long in having his way with Robert Guerrero on May 5, will be in with another younger, fresher foe.

The Mexican Alvarez is 22, and turns 23 on July 18. He has a 42-0-1 mark, with 30 KOs, and last gloved up on April 20, when he scored a UD12 over Austin Trout. That fight was closer than some of the cards had it, many said, however, so I'm doubting that any and all Floyd haters will be silenced with the pick.

Alvarez is a certified 154 pounder, while the 36-year-old Floyd (44-0) fought Guerrero at 147 pounds. He fought Miguel Cotto, in his previous scrap, at junior middleweight, however. Richard Schaefer on RingTV said the Mayweather-Canelo clash will be a “catch-weight” clash, set for 152 pounds or less. Floyd will draw some scorn for that move, seeing as how he's taken aim at Manny Pacquiao plenty for seeking catchweights. His backers and mega-rooters will note that despite the catchweight clause, the beefy Canelo will likely have a good 15 plus pounds on Floyd on fight night.

I don't see anyone from 147-160 being able to really test the Floyd who moved so masterfully against Guerrero and hold smaller-than-miniscule hopes for a catch-weight dream fight with Mayweather against Andre Ward. That's a long way of saying I don't think Alvarez does more than two rounds better than Guerrero did; but I could be wrong, Lord knows I prove that every day. Readers, what say you about Mayweather-Canelo on Sept. 14?

Like I said in my thread he really had no other option if he wanted a mega fight and here it is can't wait.


Radam G

Nothing is certain until the contract is signed. I hope that it is on like a hit song. Money May will beat the red-headed superhype like a drum. Make him look like a low-level bum. Make his face look like a cherry-colored plum. But for this beatdown, Canelo will get one heckuva sum. Holla!


DaveB

It should only be for the 152 pound title then. I don't get the whole catch weight thing. Mayweather will beat him regardless.


amayseng

Floyd had no other choice if he wanted a decent payday. Although I feel Floyd will box his ears off he will get full respect from me at 154 and no respect if he drains him to 147 or any other weight lower than 154. Canelo better work on his gas tank. Or he's in for a longer night then he is gonna have anyways.


Radam G

Catchweights are the nuts and bolts of boxing. Everybodee and dey momma in da know oughta come clean with it. I don't expect for those not in da know and the phonies, fakers and busters to know. Anyway, Money May is the emperor of this show. It is his call. His way, or nothing at all. Holla!


the Roast

I like it. We wanted it, we get it. The fight should be at 154. Floyd was fought at the weight before so no excuses. I think Floyd wins by wide UD. Too many flaws in the young fighter. This is probably why Floyd will fight him now, if he waits, Floyd gets older and Alvarez might get better.


amayseng

I heard its at 152. Radam u can't respect Floyd for this he is once again a hypocrite. He puts PAC down for catch weights then does the same **** Problem is even at 154 he would dominate Canelo who already suffers from poor stamina.


Radam G

I have the utmost respect for Money May. So-called catchweights are -- again -- the nuts and bolts of the hurt bitnezz. Money is the emperor and Canelo is a red-headed-superhype invader, so he doesn't make the rules. He is not near the level of Money May, so he must pay to play, or move on down the road. The game is prizefighting, not fairfighting or somebody's advantage fighting. Back in da day, when 154lbs Terry Norris wanted a piece of 147lbs Myron Taylor, Norris play ball and fought at a catchweight of 150lbs and won the fight and made some mean bucks. Super way, way back in da day 204lbs Jack Johnson played ball and got to the contract-signed catchweight of 192lbs to the 168lbs heavyweight champion of the world Tommy Burns. JJ became first African-American gun to be "All-humankind world heavyweight champion." Before then, he was "The Colored Heavyweight Champion of the world." He played ball, and the rest is history. Now it is time for Canelo to play ball. One thing I do know is now the Pachaters, Money May's dyckriders and groupies are going into double bullsyetology and hypocrisy to radicalize Money May's catchweight fighting. But the he-bytches oughta just shut da double fudge up. Dey ain't running syet but their keyboard tapping and bowels. Holla!


Radam G

Money May putting Da Manny down was just talk -- boxing gamesmanship. Another darn optical illusion. A trick of the trade of bargaining. Don't forget that the game is seedy and money greedy. And it is prizefighting. Not honest putdowns. Those who believe that end up being the clowns. Holla!


deepwater

Red head isn't that good enough to beat Floyd but I bet you showtime forced Floyd into the fight. Thus the catchweight. If Floyd was confident he would do 154 and brag about it like he did with cotto. Wouldn't it be funny if red head pulls a Floyd ( vs Marquez ) and weigh in at 158 and give Floyd some $$$ for the trouble.


amayseng

Deep I truly hope he does come in at least at 154. I read he is already having trouble making 154 hence him fading early in fights. Now he is dropping another 2 lbs. At this point he is having to decrease muscle weeks ahead not cut water. Do you think if he comes in at 154 Floyd will go thro with the fight?


SouthPawFlo

Biggest fight possible, decent catchweight, another big time PPV


Matthew

Actually, it was MELDRICK Taylor that fought Terry Norris, not his brother Myron. Poor Meldrick got starched in four rounds, as he was already on the decline. As for Mayweather-Alvarez, while I'm not a big fan of catchweight fights, at least the weight wasn't something that stalled negotiations. I don't see it being an issue for either fighter. I think Mayweather wins by UD in a competitive fight.


stormcentre

Good fight. I agree with the Roast & RG. This will be a good fight and Mayweather will show that power means very little if it doesn't meaningfully land


Carmine Cas

I agree with you amayseng, Floyd is a hypocrite, he once again put his food in his uneducated mouth. At least there is no re hydration clause, I think he should come in at least 154 if the fines are not that much. He needs to work on his stamina, balance, angles, feints, and not be so square. If I was Canelo's team I'd have him lean down soon to get used to fighting at a natural leaner weight


vjoe

PBF will be heavily favored, but Canelo is a big step up from the Ghost. Assuming he (Canelo) isn't awed by the moment, I think this could be a competitive fight.


Radam G

Thanks, Matthew! I knew you'd correct me on which twin. YUP! It was the superbad one, Meldrick! Holla!

Floyd will take over midway through the fight because redhead will be tired. The more weight red head puts on after the weigh in is a disadvantage.thats why no rehydration clause . I hope red head doesn't put on too much weight looking for an advantage . I rather see red head weigh in at 154 and put on 12 lbs or so

If Floyd backed out it would ruin his legacy worse then a loss. Floyd bragged about no catchweight against cotto and dlh and red head is not up to their level.


Radam G

Money May is going to beat da holy syet outta da "starved down (what Manny Pacquiao supposely did to opponents) Red-headed supper -- I mean super -- hype. Pac-haters oughta get two-labor money-making jobs and STFU! Catchweight fighting is half of boxing. Besides, in the annals of the traditional game of boxing, 154lbs are a catchweight anyway. Canelo shoulda manned up and fought at 147lbs. He is the he-bytch. And will run the last four rounds if the corrupted WBC announces that he is ahead on points in that open-scoring bulljive. The true none-catchweights of boxing are 112, 118, 126, 135, 147, 160, 175 and above 175 -- heavyweight. So -- as I said -- the game is about making that moola at catchweights and jiving the fanfaronades, the groupies and the dyckriders. Boxing business is fine. And people with issues can kiss it where the sun doesn't shine. Like Larry Holmes said when he was upset by Michael Spinks: "...big, ole behind." I'm riding with Deepwater! Let Canelo come in over the catchweight limit and pay a fine. He got an @$$ thrashing due, no matter the cost. Holla!


The Good Doctor

I have been critical of Floyd for his cherry picking but I give him credit for this one. I am by no means sold on Canelo as an elite fighter, however I think he is alright. In addition he is the best option financially and athletically for Floyd which he has had a history of only engaging in at best one of the two. With that being said, Floyd is going to hammer Canelo.


Carmine Cas

Hey Radam, holla at Henry Armstrong, featherweight, lightweight, and welterweight champ. Almost winning the middleweight. Creating a false fame at welterweight by beating depleted overhill welterweights is cheap and does not make you great. And on top of that he places rehydration stipulations on their fight weight. C'monnn man


amayseng

Why does the best fighter in the world who considers himself the best fighter ever in the history of life who has a title at 154 needs to drain a guy down to 152 to make a fight? Why does this man refuse to fight a guy at 154 who hasn't fought under 154 in 3 years ? It's hypocritical bullshit. I for one see Floyd boxing canelos ears off at 154. But I do not agree with this catch weight. As I did not agree with PAC dlh


Radam G

Boxing is as the old U.S. days of the WILD, WILD WEST. Any and everything is cool. And there is no time for a wannabe fair-fighting fool. That is for the drama and mythology movie making of television and fiction reading of books. Now I know most people don't believe the syet of fair gunfights in the Old West history. Dudes would shoot you in your back in a New York minute, and shoot your momma too, and four of your ugly cousins, your horse and pet dog for good measures. Everything that you can get away with in boxing is FAIR PLAY! It is all about the BIG PAY! Money May, GBP and Showtime are competing against Da Manny and Da BobFather. Both size are hoping for over four million PPV payouts. It is will be a struggle for Money May, GBP and Showtime. But it's easy, breezy for Da Manny and Da BobFather's Top Rank Promotions. Competition, babeee! I told yall muthasuckas this from da JUMP! Now get off Money May's hump! By hook, book or crook dat superhype's rump he's going to easily bump. And increase The Money Team's moola lump. Fam May knows that the red-headed superhype is a chump. Holla!


gibola

Great news! Agree it should be at 154, also agree that regardless of all that PBF wins all the way. Points is the obvious bet, but I wouldn't be surprised if PBF sliced Canelo up and stopped him late. I think PBF will find Canelo very, very easy to hit all night long. Glad the fight's been made tho - this was the perfect time before it went cold because someone lost (by someone I mean Canelo!). Even though I expect a big Mayweather win, I can't wait for the fight.


vjoe

Canelo is a big step up from the Ghost. PBF should win (boring, safety-first decision), but if Canelo shows up with his head on straight I can see this being a pretty interesting fight. Canelo did alright against Trout and hopefully he's still getting better.


Radam G

Money May is going to beat the snot outta of the Canelo. Canelo's chances of winning are zero and none. And they are going to slap the superhype upside his noggin. Fanfaronades never seen to learn. They get all excited. And hope and believe that Money May has a good challenge, spend their hard-earned moola on an $80 PPV event, and then end up being remorseful and disappointed. Holla!

I give red head a chance. .01% chance of pulling it off. getting hit by lightning is .02%


amayseng

I'm with Radam this will be worse than ward vs froch. Canelo is too heavy footed and 152 makes sure he gasses earlier than usual. Canelos best chance of a competitive fight is to throw nothing but left body hooks and nothing else. Maybe a right to the body from time to time just for show. But this will be a noncompetitive fight. It's the best fight out there for Floyd if it was at 154.

line just opened in vegas. floyd is only -270. told my buddy run down to the bookies and put a g on floyd now. a g on floyd plus 50 on draw is easy money.


vjoe

I understand the folks that think this is an easy fight for PBF, Canelo's too slow, etc. So the consensus is that PBF's performance against Cotto was just an off night?


ali

I don't understand how y'all don't think Canleo is a elite fighter. His only problem is his stamina if he can fix that problem by the time this fight rolls around Mayweather is in serious trouble.


deepwater

because after 40 something fights this young kid should have the stamina. the extra few pounds plus all that weight the guy is gonna put on gives him even less chance to win .


deepwater

i think cotto is head and shoulders above canelo.


Radam G

For goodness sake! Forget about the Cotto dance. Money May had jail on his mind. And his mind on jail. He was not mentally sharp for Cotto, and paid for it. Boxing is a mental sport. A major distraction like going to jail will fudge you up, unless you have the fortitude of GOAT Ali. When he was threaten with jail, he took it out on his opponents and double whupped doze @$$es. The man was "The Greatest!" Money May was just the latest. Holla!

who do you have between cotto vs gingerbread man


kidcanvas

come on, canelo is greener than broccoli, he has no chance and floyd knows it . i find it hilarious that people take this seriously as a super fight. trout beat him for christ sake really... over hyped fighter and over hyped fight


Radam G

Hehehe! A war between Cotto and the gingerbread man would probably end in majority draw with Cotto getting cut up, because the gingerbread man would run as fast as he can. Holla!


Radam G

Homicide Hank never almost won the middleweight. He fought my late, great Uncle Ceferino Garcia in a 10-round fight for the Corrupted-California version of the title. Unc was the NYSAC middleweight champ and had got Pacquiao-Bradley robbed and jobbed out of the world title at welterweight when he clearly fudged up the homicidal Hank. Holla at the bout on Daily Motion or Youtube. As Uncle Roger May screams: "Most people don't know syet 'bout boksin!' They just ride with a myth in an ant's @ss sec. Holla!


Radam G

Too bad Big-Foot Bradley will be remembered as getting his arse torched by Da Manny in 70 years still. And I just may still be alive to ensure that people see an eye-witness, not a bullsyeter talking dat bullsyetology. Where are B-Sug and D.C. R T? I wanna know how they will excuse away this two-pound catchweight by Money May. What you say? Down dat jive oughta lay. It is prizefighting, OKAY! You want the big money, you play. You don't! Go da double fudge away. Holla!


ali

i think cotto is head and shoulders above canelo.
U talking crazy Deepwater after Canleo shocks,the world he will show u who's the better fighter between him and Cotto.


ali

come on, canelo is greener than broccoli, he has no chance and floyd knows it . i find it hilarious that people take this seriously as a super fight. trout beat him for christ sake really... over hyped fighter and over hyped fight
He has no chance alot of y'all gave Guerrero a chance and Canleo is a much much better fighter then him. Come on kidcanvas u should know better fam.


deepwater

U talking crazy Deepwater after Canleo shocks,the world he will show u who's the better fighter between him and Cotto.
Compare cotto's resume against gingerbreadman's. Cotto is on the way out but he still beats red. I got no dog in this fight but Floyd will take over because of his conditioning . Ali ,you picking gingerbread man?


amayseng

U talking crazy Deepwater after Canleo shocks,the world he will show u who's the better fighter between him and Cotto.
Ali canelo doesn't have the conditioning to make 8 rounds with Floyd. Add into the fact he is cutting muscle. Are u expecting him to hurt and stop Floyd? Because he can't out box him or out point him.


Radam G

Dang, SCLA Ali! Money May is going to chew your boy Canelo up and spit him out. Be smart and put your money on Money May. He kayoed red-headed Redcoat Ricky Hatton. He is going to slice and dice red-headed hyped-up Canelo. Money May has never lost to a red-headed fighter. Reggie Sanders caused a few problems, but that was at the beginning of Lil' Floyd 's career. Holla!


the Roast

This is a no lose situation for Canelo unless he gets the crap kicked out of him and gets knocked out. If he loses a wide UD or a close UD in the post fight interview he says,"Well Floyd fought a great fight I take my hat off to him, no excuses he was the better man tonight. I did feel a little drained from getting down to 152. I'll be back." If he loses a close fight or gets robbed he gets a rematch and gets another big payday. He's young, he learns from it, and still has a bright future. Best lines from above comments are Gingerbreadman and green as broccoli. I LOLed.


ali

I'm leaning towards Canleo cuz I think he's going to come into this fight in tip top shape. He just had a fight in April so if he didn't just start piggin out I think he can make 152 comfortably.


ali

I remember everybody saying Canleo has no defense and I was saying y'all are crazy and in the Trout fight he prove me right. Now all I'm hearing for the most part is his conditioning aint good enough to beat floyd y'all acting like thats somethen that's very hard to fix. Lol!!!give me a break fellas


deepwater

well every fighter I've picked lately besides froch lost so hopefully by picking mayweather this time I just jinxed him. If Floyd fought trout would you give trout a chance

Now all I'm hearing for the most part is his conditioning aint good enough to beat floyd y'all acting like thats somethen that's very hard to fix. Lol!!!give me a break fellas
Ain't hard to fix? U think he's been training half *** all these years and can step it up? Everyone genetically has different percentages of fast twitch and slow twitch muscle Fibers along with a vo2 max which distinguishes their quickness and endurance. Guys like Hopkins and mayweather have more slow twitch fibers hence why they can go longer and further like a distance or marathon runner. Guys like Shane , Tyson and Canelo have more fast twitch which allows them to have quick explosive reactions with less overall endurance like a sprinter. This is why a 7% body fat Canelo suffers with stamina and now cutting muscle will be detrimental to him. Hey I'm all for this fight and at 154 I think it's a good matchup with Floyd still boxing him easily but the catch weight will make it less exciting and Canelo won't be as good or sharp and lethargic by round 7. Mark my words. What happened to Floyd wanting a fair playing field and his opponent at their best? Even Ellerbe's , who's a piece of ****, said Cotto was a "dead man walking" for the PAC fight. Man I hate ellerbe. I'd pay to fight him.


jzzy

This is the only credible fight for Floyd right now. He's catching flack but lets give him credit for taking a dangerous fight. Canelo is a young strong bull who will give Money lots of trouble.


Radam G

Jzzy, C'MON! Lil Floyd is not taking "a dangerous fight." He is dancing with a superhyped, overweight kid who is going to be starved down by two pounds, and is going to get a 148-pounds-of-muscles arse spanking from Money May. How about calling a spade a spade? Don't hide in the shade. Be REAL! All of you Money May's dyckriders. Get on da good foot. And the whole truth out, you should toot, or even poot. Holla!


amayseng

Exactly Radam. I'm just so tired of everyone being so biased You are allowed to disagree with your favorite fighters. It isn't illegal. Floyd's the one contradicting himself. During the cotto promotion Ellerbe called cotto "dead man walking" when he went down 2 lbs for the PAC fight I'm a huge mayweather fan, I want the best out of him and ill call him out on this bs. Why can't anyone else

When asked about his advantages over opponents, Floyd told Tribune.com.ng, ďLike I said before, Iíve never fought a guy at a catchweight. I donít fight guys at catchweights. I donít plaster my gloves. These are things I donít do, because Iím not that type of guy.Ē The truth is self evident.

jzzy

Gentlemen, I see your frustration with this catch weight business but what other opponents are going to generate ppv dollars for Money at the moment. Floyd knows his meter is running down, why wouldn't he negotiate some advantage for himself. This is and has been boxing for the last decade, Canelo has the fan base and is the only credible threat to Floyd at this point in time and will generate a huge gate, its just smart business sense. These dudes aren't in this business for fun, its all ABOUT THE MONEY.


amayseng

Jzzy this is the best fight for Floyd but at 154. No one else makes economic sense especially for 70$ ppv. No one else would sell. Floyd has a belt at 154 but made Canelo come down anyways to get an advantage. The best fighter on the planet shouldn't even ask for that. But Floyd has no humility. If he did he wouldn't have 3 different allegations in 10 years of domestic violence on women.


Radam G

Wow! Jzzy, it has been boxing, period! People always pretend or naively believe yesteryears were better. There has been catchweights, corruption and even alphabet-sanctioning organization from the jump. And straight hype-up arse fighters who couldn't wear the jockstrap of my six-year old son. Holla!


ali

If he did he wouldn't have 3 different allegations in 10 years of domestic violence on women. Come on Amayseng there is no need to bring that up.

Hypocrite straight up I remember him saying that I have to keep it 100.

[QUOTE=deepwater;31410]Compare cotto's resume against gingerbreadman's. Cotto is on the way out but he still beats red. Yes, Cotto has a better resume, but I think his tank has been close to empty for several fights. Personally, I thought Canelo should fight Cotto next and then PBF as I see his steamrolling Cotto which would kick the hype up even higher for PBF.

Well Ali I'm tying it all together with his "even playing field" "I want my opponents at their healthy weight not drained. ". Meaning his word is bs. All these Floyd riders are so biased its sick.


jzzy

Amaseng, Radam, I can't contest any points you're making. Unfortunately, Boxing like most sports and I daresay, all human endeavors is peopled with connivers and hypocrites and certainly Floyd can be counted among them.


amayseng

Agreed jzzy Ill stop harping on it but like I said Floyd is too good he didn't have to use a catch weight all it is gonna do is cause him grief after the win.


ali

He's going to.he grief after any fight that he's in Amayseng.


ali

Ppl say mayweather the best fighter in the world but he only fights guys he knows can beat do y'all know how stupid that sounds. If your the best u don't think anybody can beat u. Am I right or wrong?


Radam G

SCLA Ali, you are DEAD WRONG! Prizefighting for the greats is like picking a fruit to eat. You don't pick it until it is ripe for your taste of eating it. Same with prizefighting whup@$$. When the time is right, you pick the fight. C'mon, DUDE! Get on the real-life train. And use your brain. And get outta the acid rain. With pridefighting, a great has little to gain. It is all about making the maximum amount of moola with the minumun amount of trouble. And trouble comes double. And your arse will be turned into rubble. So Money May ain't gonna be letting nobody burst his bubble. And that is the smart way of life in the hurt bitnezz, my brotha from ur-nother motha. Holla!


amayseng

He's going to.he grief after any fight that he's in Amayseng.
I disagree. If he fought Canelo at 154 lbs where they both have belts and where Canelo has fought the last 3 years then Floyd would not catch any flak for beating the best challenge out there for him in a legitimate , no compromised fashion. But he isn't doing that. Sergio didn't complain or ask for a catch weight and Chavez came in 26 lbs hydrated for their fight.


ali

Radam u make a good point but at that's not the point I was making. At the end of the,day if your the best fighter in the world u don't think nobody can beat you especially if no one has done it. I don't care if he's fighting another elite fighter in his prime Mayweather believes he's going to win.


ali

Amayseng I remember u saying a few times Mayweather looked gas in his fight with Cotto. So how do u know Mayweather won't have stamina problem in his fight withCanleo?


Radam G

Money May was "gassed" in the Cotto because of the mental pressure of going to jail. On Canelo, Money May's punches will rain like hail. With the super hype, Money May will not have any stress. All the haters, he will again impress. Canelo is going to be a bloody, pathetic mess. And I will be a ringside house guess. Holla!


amayseng

For whatever reason during the cotto fight he had trouble with getting his second wind. He made a comment that he overstrained for cotto. For whatever change he made, I'm guessing training as a 36 year old fightr not a 26 year old fighter his conditioning against the ghost was phenomenal. He'll pot shot, counter, blaze a right hand and spit laterally all night long to a UD.


ali

Amayseng against the ghost he fought at 147. Even when he fought ODH at 154 his punch output was lower then normal and he barley escaped with a SD.I just dont think mayweather is the same fighter at 154.

Yes, it's hard to think that Canelo will have the balance and footwork to get the shots off and react to Floyd; the way he will need to. Canelo just hasn't fought anyone that present as a really polished fighter yet. Sure, there are very few guys that will prepare you for Floyd, but unless Floyd grows old overnight or Canelo lands luckily; Canelo will be schooled and swatting flies.

True dat, Strom. Money May is going to torch the red-headed superhype's arse. The kid is in deep kimche. And it is smelling badly. Hehehe! Holla!
