Mayweather: I Don't Get Enough Credit For My Wins

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com was on hand for WBA junior middleweight champion Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr.'s media workout that took place earlier this week inside of the Mayweather Boxing Club. The 5 division champion spoke on a variety of topics including his upcoming showdown against 23-year-old Saul "Canelo" Alvarez that will be broadcast September 14th on Showtime pay-per-view.
.
Alvarez (42-0-1) will be 13 years younger than Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0) when the two undefeated fighters face each other inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mayweather's previous three opponents (Robert Guerrero, Miguel Cotto and Victor Ortiz) were all significantly younger than the 36-year-old Mayweather as well.

Mayweather said that he likes facing younger fighters like Alvarez because it is a great way to test his own abilities and it helps keep him on top of his game.

"It is always about testing yourself and pushing yourself to the limit, and competing against young, strong, hungry lions.  When I fight a guy who is extremely young they say Mayweather has more experience," Mayweather told BoxingScene.com while adding that no matter who he fights, critics will always find something wrong with his opponents.

"If I fight a guy close to my age they say the guy is over the hill.  If I fight a guy who comes up from a lower weight class they say he is to small so the only thing I can do is beat the guys in front of me and rack up the victories," Mayweather concluded.

[QUOTE=Atsui des;13701859]So,you are a fan.I respect that. I'll respect you as well for admitting being a Floyd fan. What's wrong with being his fan. As long as you are not a blind fan who twisting fact and revising history only…

[QUOTE=harwri008;13701078]The key word I used in my post is that the criticism is usually based on whether you like him or not. That means my statement is not all inclusive. So congratulations you're one of the exceptions to that rule.…

Floyd never wanted to fight Cotto or Mosley in the prime. He never wanted to fight Pacquiao in his prime and STILL doesn't want to fight him. He fought only Oscar in his prime, most felt Oscar won that fight,…

[QUOTE=The Noose;13701173]Oscar was not a tough fight at all IMO. I dont believe it was a SD. And again with Cotto, he won almost every round. But yes, Cotto did challenge him. I feel he underestimated Cotto. But also that…
