Unbeaten boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. is eyeing no less than a knockout win when he faces unbeaten boxing star Canelo Alvarez on September 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Mayweather said Alvarez is a good boxer but his skills are far more superior than the latter and that he will again be part of the boxers that he had beaten in the past. He said Alvarez will just become the past boxers he had beaten who earlier said they could beat him but end up losing against him.
He added that the world will once again know why he is the top professional boxer in the world today when he knocks out Alvarez in their fight. In an earlier interview, Alvarez said he will win against the Mayweather who holds an impressive 44-0 win-loss boxing record.
Alvarez said he is bigger and younger than Mayweather which is why he is very confident of his chances against his 36-year-old opponent. The 22-year-old boxing star from Mexico said he will be the first one who can inflict Mayweather his first loss in the boxing ring.
According to reports, Alvarez has an impressive 42-0-1 and currently holds the unified WBC and WBA super welterweight titles after his April 20 unanimous win against Austin Trout in San Antonio, Texas. The two will reportedly fight at the catchweight of 152 pounds for Mayweather’s junior middleweight and welterweight titles and Alvarez’s belts.
Boxing experts said this fight will be exciting since the two boxers are hard-punching fighters who can knock each other out in the boxing ring.
