OmgItsTheWams -  What type of #s is this ppv gonna pull 1.5? Phone Post

Showtime and CBS are going to really push this one. I can see it doing around 2 million. It'll do better than the Cotto fight.
I was guessing close to 1.8 but didn't know if I was being too generous Phone Post

Not a bitch move because Floyd will be outweighed by about 15lbs or more come fight time.

Tebow Worships Satan - It is a bitch move PoundforPound but I would not be shocked if Canelo pulls the same thing Mayweather did against Marquez.

I don't think Canelo's team would agree to a 152 pound catchweight unless they have something planned.


I'm sure Floyd has already thought of this and in the case of Canelo going over the contract will outlay very stiff penalties.

Canelo has fought at WW, there's guys that fight in multiple weight classes...he's still young, let's not forget he weighed in at 153 pounds against Trout.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad the fight is happening. But I would have wanted him to beat a 100% Canelo that isn't handicapped by weight draining himself.

Floyd is good enough to beat him without that crutch.

PoundforPound - I've given Pacquiao crap in the past for being the catchweight king so I can't be a hypocrite. Floyd is taking a page right out of his book and I'm disappointed.

He should have fought Canelo at 154 just like he fought Cotto at 154.

huge difference between fighting cotto at 154 and canelo t 154. also fight night he's oin to be giving up at least 15lbs to a guy 13 years younger than him. what more do you want him to do?

Canelo: 152 No Problem, Pressure The Key To Beat Floyd                                                                                                                                        Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=66054#ixzz2UkbCokBQ

By Rick Reeno

WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) was very excited as he spoke to BoxingScene.com about the finalized deal to face the pound-for-pound king, Floyd "Money" Mayweather (44-0, 26KOs), on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I feel great emotion. I am very excited. The entire team was excited. At first I didn't believe it when [Golden Boy CEO] Richard [Schaefer] said it was done. But obviously now we got it done and I have a lot of emotion," Canelo told BoxingScene.com.

The fight is taking place at a catch-weight of 152-pounds. Canelo says there will be no problem with the weight. Mayweather has fought at the full junior middleweight limit of 154 on two occasions - with victories over Oscar De La Hoya and Miguel Cotto. But Canelo is a physically bigger fighter and rehydrated to over 170-pounds on the night he defeated Austin Trout in April.

"I feel comfortable. I feel good with that weight. Floyd obviously has fought at 154...he fought as high as 154, but for whatever reason they wanted it at that weight. I feel comfortable at that weight. The important thing is that we're both comfortable and the fight is on," Canelo told BoxingScene.com.

Although Mayweather is now 36-years-old, Canelo saw nothing from Mayweather's last performance, on May 4th against Robert Guerrero, to suggest Floyd has lost a step.

"It was the same old Floyd. He did what he had to do to win. Guerrero didn't really put up too much of a fight. he started well in the first two rounds, but after that it was typical Mayweather fight," Canelo said.

The Mexican superstar is very familiar with Mayweather and watched many of his fights. He believes that he found a trend in three encounters where Mayweather had issues - against Jose Luis Castillo, Oscar De La Hoya and Miguel Cotto. Canelo feels Mayweather does not respond well to constant pressure from a physically bigger, aggressive fighter.

"That is going to be the key. I think that is going to be the key. I think that you're exactly right [that smart pressure is needed]. But the difference is that I'm a very intelligent fighter, I'm very fast and I think that I'm going to be victorious in that fight," Canelo said.

If you're fighting for junior middleweight belts then let the opponent come in at the junior middleweight limit. Simple as that.

It’s like Pac claiming to be an 8 division champion when he forced Margarito to come in at 150 for their title fight.

This just gives Canelo a ready made excuse when he loses. And it leaves an opening for the haters to jump all over Floyd for doing the exact same thing he has criticized Manny for. It’s completely unnecessary.

bro, Canelo has fought in catchweight fights, he weighed in at 153 pounds for Trout...he said 152 isn't an issue. There's no re-hydration clause, all he has to do is drop another pound and he's good to go. 

They are champions in their respected weight classes, with the titles on the line, so they met at 152. Floyd's a hypocrite who cares, fight is on.

Yes, it's good that the fight is on.

But it would have been nice to see him get full credit for taking on the best available challenge instead of leaving the door open for his critics to diminish this.

I feel you bro, but you already know with haters, they'll find anything to nitpick. If Floyd wins, guarantee haters will say Canelo is too green.
