Below is the first promo released for the upcoming mega fight. My fight predictions will come closer to fight time. Stay tuned. Who do you think will win?
‘The second fight of Floyd Mayweather Jr’s contract with Showtime/CBS will surprisingly be with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in the shortest layoff of his career in over a decade. This is arguably the biggest fight that could be made regarding Mayweather. Not only is Alvarez young and hungry, he is naturally much bigger than Mayweather and will have no problem imposing his will against Floyd. At 36 years of age, one could say this will be the toughest fight of Floyd’s career that is certain to make people wonder “what if?”. Mayweather and the Mexican bonafide star will head towards a collision course on Saturday, September 14th at the MGM Grand in what is a must see fight.
The event of this past weekend was the anticipated fight between Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr and Miguel Cotto. The big fight was preceded by Saul Canelo Alvarez and future hall of famer Shane Mosley in which the former landed hard hitting shots throughout all twelve rounds to secure a unanimous decision against the veteran. The judges in the main event fight scored in a way that made it seem like it was a blowout victory for Mayweather but the fight was much closer than what the score indicated. Overall it was a very competitive fight as Cotto pushed Mayweather to the brink only for Mayweather to show that he can still move up in weight and still be victorious with his defensive prowess. If you missed out on the fight, then you missed out on a very good boxing Saturday as Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr defeated Miguel Cotto to become the new WBA Super Welterweight champion in what was one of the toughest fights of his career. There is no word yet on if there will be a rematch.
