Saul Alvarez vs. Floyd Mayweather – style, weight and age issues

Canelo and Mayweather face offSeptember 14 is near and “The One” will stand out hopefully without controversy. I am not sure who will be favored by the politics if it comes to that. Floyd was never a KO artist and after moving up in weight he did not bring his punch with him. Saul Alvarez knocking out Floyd Mayweather is not a scenario that pundits would even consider although „Canelo“ seems to hit hard enough. The outcome will probably depend on the judges.

There are labels for matching up different styles like “a boxer vs. a puncher“, “a stylist vs. a brawler“, if I had to label the fight I’d say “a boxer vs. a fighter” but there would be a lot of “fine print“ under that label.

Floyd Mayweather‘s style is unconventional for the pro ranks as it is fundamentally based on the Olympic/amateur boxing style. His amateur boxing skills have been optimized and modified for prize fighting. Continue reading

Floyd Mayweather is not Chicken!

floyd33Manny misspoke when he said Floyd Mayweather, Jr. runs, which implies he’s chicken. No one really buys that. However, they do go along with the idea that Floyd is guilty of same thing as Wladimir Klitschko. Hall of Famer Larry Merchant explained it best when he corrected someone for calling bouts – boxing. Larry quickly explained, in no uncertain terms, that that is not what people pay to see. According to Larry, they’re paying to see prize fighting, with emphasis on fighting.

Floyd has been boxing since he got out of diapers. His father and uncles were either boxing or training/coaching others how to box before Little Money was born. It’s a safe bet to say Small Change was boxing while still in his crib. He doesn’t know anything else. Boxing has been his life. If he was a chicken, there’s no way he could have carried on the family’s tradition. Continue reading

Mayweather vs. Canelo: Keys To Victory

03CaneloandMayweathernosetonoseIMG_3679 It has been over two months since Mayweather Vs Canelo was announced, and i have to admit it took awhile for the news to sink in, because of the magnitude of this kind of fight that we boxing fans rarely get. None the less, here are my keys to victory for this tremendous fight.

Floyd “Money” Mayweather

Why change you’re style when everything you have done in the past has worked? Though Mayweather has said in multiple occasions that he does not watch video of his opponents, you would have to think he has had to watch at least some footage of Canelo. Regardless of who watches video in the Mayweather camp i would tell Floyd to increase the usual pressure just by a little bit. So happens that Canelo’s closest fight was against his busiest opponent, Austin Trout. Trout was busy but was also missing by a lot, something Floyd doesn’t do. Floyd is about as accurate as fighters have gotten. So, if you do the simple Sweet Science math, the more Floyd throws, the more he will land, because he is that accurate. Continue reading
