Photos by E. Lin and Tom Casino / Showtime — Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) looked like a winner already today in Friday’s big weigh-in for his bout with WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) on Saturday night on Showtime pay-per-view in Las Vegas, Nevada. Standing in front of a huge 12,200 crowd at the MGM Grand, Mayweather weighed in at 150.5 lbs. to come in at 1.5 pounds under the 152 lb. catch-weight limit.
Canelo looked really thin in weighing in at 152 lbs. Canelo immediately sat down when he first came out, and it almost looked like he was too weak to stand. I thought to myself that maybe the huge amount of water weight that Canelo had taken off had left him so weak that he needed to sit down. It was kind of sad to see because in that moment I realized that Canelo doesn’;t have a chance in a million to win this fight. Canelo is just going to be another Mayweather victim, and suspect he won’t even do as good as Mayweather’s last two opponents Robert Guerrero and Miguel Cotto.
