By Miguel Rivera

WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) is on schedule to make the 152-pound catch-weight limit for next Saturday's defense against Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Canelo has cleared a lot of doubts about his ability to make the agreed upon weight, when he came in at 157.4-pounds at the WBC's mandatory seven-day weight check. Canelo has a week, which is more than enough time, to lose 5.4-pounds.
