The media tour continues for the huge fall match between Floyd Mayweather (44-0, 26KOs) and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs), taking place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 14th. Canelo's Mexican rival, former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., gives the 22-year-old star a good shot to defeat Mayweather. Chavez would like to see Canelo achieve victory in September, but he feels Mayweather will get the win.

“It'll be a great fight, and there's a good chance for Canelo because he’s young, strong and he is in his prime, Mayweather is a great boxer but he’s also thirty seven years old. It's going to be a very interesting fight and I’d like very much for Canelo to win, because he’s Mexican. And... Mayweather hasn’t faced anyone like Canelo," Chavez said.

"Analyzing the fight the fight, I think Mayweather will win by decision. He fought a good fighter in [Austin] Trout and it was tough for him, a close fight, and I think Canelo won by one or two points so I think it will be a tough night against Mayweather. But I do think [Canelo] has a chance because he is young, strong, and expecially if he can connect with a good shot."

[QUOTE=twosweethooks]IF JR had fought all comers , sought them out and whupped them in the ring, didn't duck nor cherry pick, didn't seek out little guys or wee little guys to embarrass them and "make himself look good", and especially signed every legit threat over the last 8 years I would agree...
