Mayweather Says a Knockout of Canelo Can Happen

By Edward Chaykovsky

Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) does not ruke out the possibility of ending his fight with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) by knockout. Mayweather challenges Canelo for the WBC/WBA junior middleweight titles on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather blames the opponents for his recent run of decision victories. When boxers come to fight, like Ricky Hatton, Mayweather feels that he can knock them out. But he says other opponents come to the ring with the strategy of surviving and going the distance, which makes it difficult to knock them out.

"I'm going for the victory [with Canelo], but do I think the knockout can happen...absolutley. A lot of guys come in the ring with Floyd Mayweather just to survive, to say they went the distance with Floyd Mayweather. Things happen and that's the sport of boxing, but people don't remember how many knockouts you had or didn't have - they remember winners. The critics put these guys on certain levels, then when these same fighters come up short - then the critics end up talking bad about these guys," Mayweather said.

[QUOTE=rocktx;13512763]Man that was a heck of a rant. I see the points you are making about the fighters Floyd has picked, but... In the end do you really think Floyd would have lost to any of those fighters? Sure they…
