Foreman: Canelo Can Win, Knock Mayweather Jr. Out!

By Frank Stea

Former heavyweight champion George Foreman appeared on ATG Radio and discussed the upcoming mega-match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs), scheduled to take place on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Foreman gives Canelo a huge shot to pull off the upset. He doesn't see any possible way that Mayweather is capable is doing damage on Canelo. Mayweather has only scored two stoppage victories since 2006, against Hatton and a controversial knockout of Victor Ortiz in 2011. 

"Alvarez, this is his fight to lose. I'll put it to you like this - he's younger, he's a harder puncher, he has a greater future, he has nothing to lose. He can win this fight. Mayweather on the other hand can't hurt anybody. So, the other guy has no chance of being hurt. The only fella that Mayweather ever hurt was his own hand, Mayweather's right hand. He's no danger in hurting Alvarez. Alvarez can punch. If he paces himself, he can knock [Mayweather out] by the ninth round. This is a competitive fight, unheard of - a great fighter with so much potential to take on such an experienced fighter like Mayweather," Foreman said.
