Mayweather vs. Canelo All Access video special preview


 Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions sees his fighter WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) handing unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) his first loss of his career on September 14th in their fight on Showtime pay per view.

De La Hoya thinks he’s got the younger, stronger, smarter and more talented fighter in 23-year-old Canelo, and he expects him to beat Mayweather Jr. soundly in front of a nationwide audience. De La Hoya sees this as the beginning of big things for the junior middleweight, which Golden Boy tends to match up against a lot of welterweights.

De La Hoya said this about Mayweather: “I respect that he’s beaten everybody. He still has that ‘O’ on his record. What Mayweather has to understand is my fighter [Canelo] is going to kick you’re a**!”

The only thing you can say about De La Hoya and Canelo is that if the red-haired Mexican fighter can’t beat Mayweather Jr. with a 20 pound weight advantage in coming into the fight over 170 lbs, then that’s a pretty sad statement about Canelo. If you gave Mayweather a weight advantage like that and asked him to fight someone 20 pounds lighter than him in the super featherweight division [130 lbs], I can’t see anyone in that division hanging with Mayweather.

Throw Mikey Garcia in the ring with Mayweather Jr. and Mikey would get clowned by Mayweather. But if Canelo can’t even hang with Mayweather Jr. with a 20 lb. weight advantage, then Oscar is going to have to start picking out more light welterweights for Canelo to fight, because it’s going to look bad if Mayweather Jr. ends up schooling Canelo in front of the entire world on September 14th.

Canelo will literally look like he’s 3 weight divisions heavier than Mayweather Jr., and yet it won’t help him unless Mayweather Jr. stays and one place and lets Canelo tee off on him. I don’t think Mayweather Jr. is going to do that. He’s not like the guys that Golden Boy has been digging up for Canelo to fight at 147.
