Chavez Sr. Hopes Canelo Can Win, But Has Doubts

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

Mexican legend Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. is predicting a very tough night for WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs), when he takes on Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight is taking place at a catch-weight of 152-pounds. Chavez feels Canelo does not have the experience, at only 23-years-old, to defeat the 36-year-old pound-for-pound veteran.

"Definitely, it's a very difficult fight for Canelo because he is going against a real fighter; elusive and intelligent, but not invincible. I believe that Canelo has confidence and that is the main thing, but with what I've seen he doesn't have enough to win the fight. We are confident in his youth, and the weight will be a very important factor in the fight, although it may be double-edged sword because he had to dehydrate to make 152 pounds and that is where you can rebound (on the day of the fight) and gain too much weight and then Mayweather can take advantage with his speed. If I were Canelo, I would come out to attack as soon as the first bell rings. He has strength, he is younger, has more weight, and needs to manage his strategy," Chavez Sr. said.

But Canelo cannot beat Floyd now at 23. Impossible

[QUOTE=Jago1986;13740868]A prime Chavez would give Mayweather hell and possibly beat him at 135 or 140lbs. Chavez was never a natural 147[/QUOTE] there is no planet where Chavez even has a competitive fight with Floyd.
