The long-awaited fight between Floyd Mayweather and
Saul Canello Alvarez will take place on September 14, 2013
at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. This fight happens
during the weekend of Mexico's Independence Day.
 
The bout will be contested at a 152 lb. catchweight. This 
weight is above the welterweight limit of 147 lbs. 
As such, Mayweather’s WBC and Ring Magazine 
welterweight championship will not be on the line.
In addition, the 152 lb. catchweight is thought to be a 
concession to Mayweather in order to secure the highly
sought fight.
 
Mayweather's boxing record over 17 years is 
44(26)-0-0; whereas, Alvarez holds a 42(30)-0-1 record over 
8 years of boxing. Both fighters have an orthodox boxing 
stance. Alvarez is 14 years younger, an inch taller with a 
one inch shorter reach. He holds a 70% KO percentage to 
Mayweather's 60% KO percentage. Alvarez has been described 
as the bigger man. 
 
Mayweather outpointed Miguel Cotto in their May, 2012
fight while scoring a much more lop-sided decision against
Bob Guerrero in their most recent fight. Alvarez beat Austin
Trout in a competitive fight.
 
Mayweather has outpointed opponents more recently. His
strength is ringmanship-especially with fighting on the
ropes. Alvarez is more of a knockout artist who tracks
down his opponents, strikes with great precision and moves
away with great speed in order to thwart effective 
counter-punching. In some ways, Alvarez fights just like
Jayson Velez, a featherweight from Cagas, Puerto Rico
with a 20-0 record. Velez, like Alvarez, tracks down his
opponents, delivers punches with lightning speed and
slides away stealthily with an artful use of the ropes.
 
At 23 years old, Alvarez is closer to his peak as an athlete.
Mayweather is a decade or so beyond his prime fighting years.
Although Mayweather has more experience, he must train
harder proportionately than 13 years ago. Clearly,
Mayweather represents the past and the present; whereas,
Alvarez represents the future of boxing.
 
To win this bout, Alvarez must train like an elite athlete
with more running, sprints, sparring, general conditioning
and a spartan diet. At age 36, Mayweather must match this
training regimen with the albatross of 13 years of 
additional age. Clearly, the stakes are high for both 
fighters. Alvarez has youth on his side while Mayweather
has a slight edge in experience.
