2012 U.S. Olympian and present-day welterweight/junior middleweight prospect Errol Spence Jr. (6-0, 5 KOs) saw his name thrust into the spotlight this past April when it was revealed that he had temporarily relocated to Las Vegas to serve as a sparring partner for Floyd Mayweather ahead of his dominant victory over Robert Guerrero.

Having gone chest to chest with Mayweather for some lively sessions, Spence knows all too well of all the tricks and guile that the 36-year old future Hall-of-Famer possesses and he has little doubt that Floyd will find a way to emerge victorious in his next assignment, a September 14th clash with Saul Canelo Alvarez at the MGM Grand.

I think Floyd is going to outpoint him, Spence told me recently. I think Floyd is too quick for him, too smart, too fast. I dont think Canelo has a high enough work rate. I just think hes going to outpoint him.

When asked how familiar he is with the 22-year old champion from Jalisco, Mexico, Spence recalled Alvarez's bouts with Matthew Hatton, Austin Trout, and Josesito Lopez, and despite offering some respect, he also pointed towards some glaring weaknesses that he sees.

Hes very fundamentally sound, Spence, a native of Dallas, Tex., said of Alvarez. He has a good jab. Hes a good body puncher. I see hes starting to move his head a lot. But I think hes kind of heavy-footed. I dont really think he has fought anybody who can box him. Austin Trout wasnt really throwing punches like that.

Another thing, Spence added. Hes really wide with his punches. I dont think hes going to hit Floyd with those real wide punches like that. He loads up with everything punch. I dont think hes going to catch Floyd with them lunging punches.

Spence is next scheduled to see action on July 27th in San Antonio, Texas on the Andre Berto-Jesus Soto Karass undercard and he is hopeful of getting some exposure on Showtime Extreme.

what else is spencer suppose to say, he trains with mayweather.He can say whetever, he hasn't sparred with alvarez, he is just hyping up mayweather.

Some of you guys need to just commit suicide already. Floyd ducking GGG is like me saying GGG is ducking Adonis Stevenson at 168. Quick question to all the haters in this thread, when is the last time GGG fought at 154?

Floyd is ducking Unicron, Galactus, King Kong and Godzilla as well as The Big Show!!!

Floyd's feet and his commitment to using them are way too fast for everybody. Canelo is going to think he got off a Merry-Go-Round when this fight is over.
