Floyd Mayweather Jr.
From the opening moments it was apparent Saul “Canelo” Alvarez could not stay with the faster, quicker, more-accurate punching Floyd Mayweather.
The Mayweather-Canelo fight could possibly exceed the record-breaking 2.5 million pay-per-view buys that Mayweather-De La Hoya attracted in 2007.
36-year-old Floyd Mayweather (44-0) will be facing undefeated 23-year-old Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, the WBC/WBA world champ (42-0-1) Saturday night in “The One,” from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Alvarez and Mayweather are fighting at a catch-weight of 152 pounds, which, if you’re looking for an edge, would probably point to Alvarez, the naturally larger man. But Mayweather has a way of making larger men look small.
