Canelo's Brother Says Floyd Mayweather Displayed Fear

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

On Tuesday in Los Angeles, the first face to face took place between Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs), as the two fighters were shooting promos for their upcoming fight on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The match takes place at a catch-weight of 152-pounds for Canelo's WBC/WBC/Ring junior middleweight titles.

Junior welterweight contender Ricardo Alvarez, the older brother of Canelo, said "Mayweather, you could see the fear on his face." Ricardo felt Mayweather was intimidated, a bit on edge and not his usual self as was seen in past face-off situations.

Ricardo also noted that his brother will spend a few weeks training in Big Bear and will stay in a house owned by Shane Mosley, who Canelo decisioned last May in Las Vegas.

Mayweather never displays massive confidence/over confidence in the build up to fight. Hatton looked way more confident of victory in the press conferences but in the ring Mayweather displays way more confidence than outside of it. That is his makeup.

[QUOTE=Carpe Diem;13486043]Learn the difference between height and size. They're the same height, but not the same size. Floyd is already in fighting shape. He won't look any bigger on fight night. Canelo is in fighting shape, but you will see…
