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.

This is huge. Biggest fight in a long time. As a Canelo fan though, I'm not so sure how confident I am, lol.

Probably. 

Probably will be Floyd's last fight too. 

If he wins I see him retiring into the sunset. 

Unless Canelo catches him with something huge or can consistently hit him with a jab I see Floyd taking this.

it also depends on how much Floyd has left, if he's 90% of what he was he should take this.

If he grows old overnight Canelo has a chance.

Wasn't "that" impressed with him against Austin Trout though.   If he doesn't bring it better than that, Floyd is going to beat him.

Nope. He has 5 fights left.

 

 Mayweather wins... I really like that Canelo kid but he's still "rough" around the edges imo. He can outpower Mayweather but like the Spurs vs Grizzlies his experience will make it easy for him to read Alvarez. Alvarez style is flat footed and straight ahead forward not going to work with Floyd. Most fighters with a punchers chance and overpowering styles end up being frustrated with Mayweathers counter punching and footwork. And Canelo is too slow for floyd, Canelo head movement is slow for Floyd too.

All good points and I believe to be true but part of me just wants to see if he can stay in front of mayweather just enough and land enough to make a difference,I think Canelo might have the heaviest hands mayweather has seen in awhile

Indeed he might have the heaviest hands but I'm sure Mayweather is not going to stay in front of him and brawl bad idea but Mayweather is too smart to do that. Mayweather knows Canelo is bigger, stronger, with heavy hands

I REALLY like Canelo in this fight. 

 

It's tough to go against Mayweather in any fight but if he's going to falter, it's going to be this late in his career against a young fighter like Canelo. 

 

Canelo will look to be a lot sharper than he was in his last fight but I do think if anyone can take down money it's going to be him.

Canelo is going to weigh 170 by the actual fight. He packs on weight after the weigh in. Gonna be a great fight, I still gotta go with Money

Floyd's picking a dude that's just not ready yet. He ain't dumb.
