Gomez Says Canelo is Facing Floyd Mayweather Too Soon

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

Mexican promoter Pepe Gomez of Cancun Boxing recently discussed the fall clash between Floyd Mayweather (44-0, 26KOs) and WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs). The big fight is going to happen on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Gomez says Canelo, 22-years-old, is facing Mayweather too soon, but also calls it the opportunity of a lifetime.

"This is a fight that you can not refuse. Obviously everyone is betting on Mayweather, who will be the logical choice. Saul has great qualities, but I think that it is too soon to face Mayweather. Not for nothing, Mayweather is the best fighter in the world. Anyway, a fight like this can not be rejected. It should be taken at all costs. This is an opportunity like few others, besides the great purse that Canelo will get. It is the opportunity for 'Canelo' to wow the world with a victory. Now, if he loses, he will lose to the best in the world, and his reputation will remain intact. He is 22 years old and he can continue to move forward and accomplish many great things," Gomez said

[QUOTE=BTTAG145;13492593]A couple years from now Floyd will be like 40 yrs old for real. There is no glory in beating a grandpa version of Mayweather. He's on the decline already so Canelo has to beat him now to claim the…

[QUOTE=Public_Enemy;13492236]It would either be viewed as too early for Canelo now or too late for Floyd if the fight came later. I think this is great timing. Canelo is coming off of his best win and he's still able to…
