One of the biggest boxing matches in recent memory is set to take place on September 14, 2013 between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Canelo Alvarez. Both of these elite boxers have looked unstoppable as of late, and it will truly decide who has the best boxing skills of today’s era. Both boxers bring formidable skills to the table, so it will be an interesting war that should have fans on the edge of their seat.

Mayweather has been one of the most dominant boxers ever. His undefeated record of 44-0 proves this, and he doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. He is known for his defensive excellence, and his footwork and speed are rarely matched by any fighter.

Mayweather is so good that he rarely takes damage in any of his fights, and it’s a true art to watch him slip and move around punches while landing accurate shots of his own. One word can describe Mayweather: greatness.

Mayweather has a formidable challenge in Alvarez, who is also undefeated as a professional. To date, Canelo has amassed an equally impressive record of 42-0-1. He has over 30 knockouts on his resume, which is a testament to the type of power and relentlessness that he possesses once he enters the ring. Coming into this WBA (super) light middleweight title fight, Canelo will be the bigger, stronger fighter of the two.

Both of these boxers have fought the best in their weight classes over the years, and it will be intriguing to see who can impose their will and strategy in hopes of coming out the victor.
