Canelo Alvarez Has A Great Shot At Defeating Floyd Mayweather Jr

+Read full article
Canelo Alvarez Boxing

Jake Roth-USA Today Sports

One of the most important boxing matches is set to take place on Sept. 14, 2013, which features a bout between two of today’s greatest stars in Canelo Alvarez and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Mayweather has been one of the most dominant boxers ever. His unbeaten record of 44-0 is quite impressive, and every time he gets into the ring, he showcases his technical excellence. His dominance can be compared to fighters such as Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson. Great champions rarely ever finish their career undefeated, however. This might be the case for Floyd, as he is going up against a hungry, strong fighter in Alvarez.

On paper, Alvarez may be the toughest fighter Mayweather has ever faced. Alvarez is a power puncher, and he uses his size really well against his opponents. If there was any boxer today to test Mayweather in terms of his chin, it’s Alvarez. Also, Alvarez has been waiting for this opportunity all his life, and he believes in himself, which is what it takes to take out such a dominant champion such as Mayweather.

Alvarez looked great in his bouts against Shane Mosely and Austin Trout, showcasing his relentless power. He would even drop Trout in their bout, which was the first time Trout had ever been dropped in his career. The questions is: will Alvarez find Floyd’s chin, which seems virtually impossible to hit? It depends on how Alvarez comes out. The general consensus is that if Canelo wants the victory, he will have to make this a brawl and get inside Floyd’s defense early. This is going to be tricky, as Mayweather is one of the most elusive boxers in the game right now.

Anything can happen in the sport of boxing, so be sure to keep it locked to Alvarez vs. Mayweather, which takes place this Saturday, only on pay per view.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Predicted Holly Holm Would Knock Her Out

Dr. AnnMaria De Mars is the first woman ever to win a gold medal at the World Judo Championship doing so in 1984. She is also the mother of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Further she may be the most vocal critic of Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan. Appearing on Submission Radio De Mars once again spoke out on Tarverdyan commenting on Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. “I predicted it in advance Ronda trained with an idiot and a fraud” said De Mars.

Ronda Rousey’s Coach Breaks Silence on KO Loss to Holly Holm

We haven’t heard much from Ronda Rousey or her camp about the loss Rousey suffered to Holly Holm in November. Sure Rousey recently hosted Saturday Night Live and briefly addressed her UFC 193 knockout loss in her monologue but as far as detailed comments on the fight there has been mostly silence. That changed earlier this week when Rousey’s trainer Edmond Tarverdyan spoke to ESPN. Tarverdyan took a lot of heat in the days following the fight. Most of that heat was generated when his fighter bloodied and breathing from her mouth sat down on her stool at the end of Round 1.

Dana White Responds to Jose Aldo’s Demand for Conor McGregor Rematch

On Thursday UFC president Dana White appearing on the “Opie and Jim Norton” radio show said “It’s one of those things; we made the fight the first time and he got hurt and had to pull out. Then we made it again and it ended in 13 seconds. It’s tough to make that fight again right away. Plus Conor wants to be a two-belt champion so he wants to fight dos Anjos.” While White didn’t totally rule out an Aldo versus McGregor rematch his comments make the fight seem unlikely. McGregor’s next fight will take place on March 5 when he moves up to lightweight to try and capture Rafael dos Anjos’ title.
