Mayweather: Beating Canelo Will Not Please My Critics

By Bill “Two Scoops” Emes

Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) does not see WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 26KOs) as having any effect on his legacy, good or bad. Mayweather faces Canelo on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather says a convincing win over Canelo will not be enough to please his critics, who he believes are already making excuses for why Canelo is not going to win.

“[Canelo] does not have any effect on my legacy. If Floyd Mayweather Jr. retired today, I would go down as an all-time great. Like I said before, I didn’t give this sport my whole life to say another fighter is better than me. Absolutely not [the critics will not be satisfied when I beat Canelo], the excuse that’s going to come after the fight is that he didn’t have enough experience. I’ve come to learn and understand that you cannot make everybody happy. You cannot please everybody. The only thing I can do is go out there, stay focused and keeping winning fights,” Mayweather said.

[QUOTE=bizzle113;13503678]The only reason the fight is at 152 is to prove a point that Floyd makes the rules not Canelo. Canelo and his manager/trainer said they would only fight Floyd at 154. But in the end the came to what…
