    Floyd is not the kind of guy who will let his enemy dictate the phase of the game.. Remember his last fight against Guerrero? He's just relax, he's calm until the end of the game because he knows that it would be the best thing to do! If he brawls against Guerrero and go on his fighting style, chances of losing would be high, on the other hand, Mayweather is a clever boxer and not the kind of guy who will give u any advantage. He's a pro and he knows how to win the game.. That is why he is undefeated up to know..

    Dominant performance by Floyd. The question now is: Who's next? (We hope, it's Manny Pacquiao!) Congrats papa smurf

    Top Comment: Andrew Evans over 5 years ago.

    this is an overrated fight... we all know Mayweather. typically, this fight will be on his favor, it'll be dirty, boring and he's going to win via decision (unanimous) just like his previous fights

    Mayweather obviously waited for these event, he waited the time when Pac's strength and speed slowly decrease. That is why, he, after defeating Canelo would possibly accept Manny to be his opponent. That would be possible if Manny defeats Rios

    yep, and even if we consider Alvarez's strength inside the ring, we can't deny the fact that Mayweather is pretty sure for this fight. Mayweather will not accept this if he knows he's not on the winning side just like what he always do to Manny Pacquiao

    READ this.
    Reference : East Side Boxing

    Stance: Floyd has a wide stance with feet far apart that gives him increased range and balance. It is good for defensive and offensive speed but does not provide a lot of leverage for power shots. His stance favors mobility but he has to ?reset? in order to throw body shots. ?El Canelo? has a conventional stance compared to Floyd. Both have an orthodox stance, Floyd?s is more unconventional, it has an Olympic style element to it.

    Footwork: Floyd prefers mobility to leverage. He has a keen sense of position and angle in relation to the opponents ?danger zone? and his footwork is a key element of his famed defense. Alvarez sets his feet not only when he throws power shots but in defense as well. He needs to be steady on his feet for the body and head movement that allows him to stand his ground and counter. He plants his feet often and this creates the misleading impression he is ?flat-footed?. Floyd knows better and he knows Alvarez will find him in the ring. I dare repeat he might even find him out.

    Body and head movement: FMJ rarely moves only the head and body without footwork except while performing the shoulder roll. It is an old school drill that originated when the style, pace and mainly the size of gloves were very different. The dynamics of offense were different due to the danger of hand injury. The shoulder roll was and is a class act but it is not a totally reliable shield today against a fresh determined opponent. Floyd makes it look good against an over-matched or fatigued opponents but it is more showboating than a building block of his defense. Alvarez?s body and head movement very often take place while he is grounded. He needs the leverage because he aims not only to evade the shots but to counter in the same motion. Guard: Floyd?s guard is an important part of his defense while ?El Canelo? does not rely his guard that heavily, it?s more of an invitation and an excuse to keep the hands in position for punching. Both of them know very well when a tight guard is a must and when you can keep them low and taunt the other guy or take a break.

    this might you guys some idea,. i'm betting on Canelo!

    I'll believe it when I see it. I maintain that this fight simply will not happen. Its too dangerous for Mayweather. Everyone sees Canelo as this plodding, slow moving target, easy to hit and a sharp boxer like Floyd will have a field day on him. To that end I say they are crazy. This kid has it all. Ring IQ, adjustments, speed, power, legs, elusiveness. Don't be surprised if Canelo is the one pot-shoting and getting out. Much too dangerous, Leonard Ellerby will simply not let the fight happen

    Hmmmm... Yes Canelo is "bigger" but he's a toe-to-toe brawler. The kind that's sure to get frustrated fighting Mayweather's doggish style. If Canelo gets frustrated, he'll get sloppy and Mayweather can drop him. But Mayweather may not have the power to drop Canelo. So, this may be a marathon with Canelo chasing Floyd for 12 rounds. I'd say this ends in UD for Floyd who's going to try to win on points.
