This Saturday Floyd Mayweather Jr. is going to fight Canelo Alvarez and I don't see anyway Alvarez can walk away with a win. Mayweather is the premier defense oriented boxers around, when he tucks his chin behind his shoulder there's little to no way an opposing boxer can get to him. Alvarez is a young talented kid, but I don't think he's ready for the spectacle that is fighting Mayweather. From the trash talking at weigh ins and in the promotions leading up to fight, including the show on Showtime previewing the fight Mayweather finds ways to get into a boxers mind and considering the Alvarez has to drop in weight to fight Mayweather I don't see it.

Also, Mayweather is going to make at least 41 million dollars for this fight on Saturday and with the pay per view costing $75 instead of the usual $50, Mayweather stands to make even more money. In two fights this year Mayweather has made at least 73 million. Alvarez is going to make considerably less than Mayweather to the tune of 5 million but it could reach 12 depending on the ppv sales. The levels of experience is the difference between the two, but the skills that Mayweather contains is going to lead to not only a bigger paycheck, but a win for Mayweather.

The Mayweather haters hate his arrogance and how flashy he is, but he's earned all of it. Mayweather has fought most of the biggest names in his division and with the sport lacking in star power Mayweather just might be the last big name left. Both fighters are undefeated and one of Mayweather's favorite boasts is that he's undefeated; something I know he'd like to take with him whenever he decides to retire. So put 'em and let's get ready to rumble.
