    FLOYD "MONEY" MAYWEATHER TO FACE SAUL "CANELO" ALVAREZ IN JR. MIDDLEWEIGHT UNIFICATION ON SEPTEMBER 14

    Sources close to the information have informed us that a deal has been reached for a mega-fight showdown between undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and undefeated jr. middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. The bout will take place on September 14, the coveted weekend of Mexican Independence Day, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and televised live on Showtime Pay-Per-View. Although all of the details still remain unclear at this point, we're told that it will indeed be a jr. middleweight unification bout.

    Mayweather is coming off of a dominant lopsided unanimous decision victory over top contender Robert Guerrero earlier this month. Although he was defending his WBC welterweight [147 lbs.] title in that bout, Mayweather also holds the WBA "super" jr. middleweight [154 lbs.] title, which he won in May of 2012 when he defeated former champion Miguel Cotto via unanimous decision. Alvarez, the reigning WBC jr. middleweight champion, also picked up a form of the WBA title when he defeated the previously undefeated "regular" champion Austin Trout via unanimous decision this past April. If it sounds confusing, all that really matters is that, as previously stated, the bout will take place in the jr. middleweight division and both the WBC and WBA titles will reportedly be on the line.

    Mayweather himself confirmed the news of FightHype's story moments ago when he tweeted: "I chose my opponent for September 14th and it's Canelo Alvarez. I'm giving the fans what they want. It will be at the MGM Grand." We've also just been informed that both sides agreed to face each other at a weight of 152 pounds.
    I can't believe we're actually getting this boxing superfight. I'm shocked that Mayweather is risking that perfect record against a legit rising star like Canelo. This will be Floyd's toughest match since he fought Castillo over a decade ago.

    If Canelo can remain calm and overcome his stamina issues, I think he could not only win, but possibly knock Mayweather out.

    LOL this will be another route by Floyd. Why are people buying so much into Canelo? He is WAYYYY Over hyped. 42-0 and his biggest wins are over Old ass Shane Mosely and unproven Austin Trout thats it! He has not fought anyone of worth to be given the praise he is getting.

    Either way pretty boy Floyd takes home enough to retire. Not into or up on boxing just know he'll get a pretty pay check

    Do not underestimate Canelo, he has speed and a ton of power. But having said that I still think Floyd would take this fight but regardless should be a good one to watch

    I would like Canelo to win this fight but I think that Mayweather is a better boxer and has no problems at all handling big pressure.

    Canelo has speed and has power, but he may be very very nervous for this fight.
    But at least I hope he puts a competitive performance and gets motivated because the fight will happen on September 14th, one day before Mexico's independance day and the whole country is going to watch him.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff
