Over the past year many boxing fans have been clamoring for a fight between WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. and WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. After Mayweather's dominant victory over Robert Guerrero and Alvarez's victory over Austin Trout, the demand has never been higher. BoxingScene and other members of the press caught up with four-division champion Juan Manuel Marquez to get his thoughts on the potential super fight.

"A fight against Mayweather would be very difficult for Canelo Alvarez because of Mayweather's style. I think that Canelo needs a few more fights against fighters similar to Floyd Mayweather before he is ready but there aren't any fighters even close to Mayweather right now in boxing. It would be very tough for Canelo," Marquez reasoned.

Marquez also said that a fight against Mayweather would be great for the overall development of the 22-year-old Alvarez. While he doesn't think that Alvarez would be victorious against Mayweather, he thinks that the experience he would gain would be invaluable and said that it is a no lose situation for the Jalisco, Mexico born Alvarez.

"It is a win win situation for him. If Canelo wins it is a great triumph for Canelo and all of Mexico. If he loses he still wins because of the experience he gains from the fight. He won't lose from learning from a fight like that. That is why I say it is a win-win situation," Marquez stated.

[QUOTE=ADP02]The thing is is that many other fighters do but Floyd doesn't!!! Floyd and his team already freaked out that Manny went from 106 to 150lbs and walked over his opponents. So Manny already did the unbelievable, according to Floyd and his team. Here is the thing. Marquez challeng...
