The WBC and WBA Super World Light-Middleweight Championships

Post Fight Review

Tonight was a night where, once again, Floyd Mayweather Junior showed why he's known as the pound for pound king. Despite the hype around the fight, and the quality of his opponent, he was simply too elusive for the Mexican 23-year-old Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Canelo is a top fighter, but on the night, Mayweather made him look ordinary. And that is indeed his skill. Canelo is certainly not the first who has found his punches landing too frequently on arms, shoulders and air - as Mayweather was able to make ensure he was just too small a target. 

At the end, a majority decision for Floyd Mayweather Junior, 45-0.

The pound for pound king and greatest fighter of his generation Floyd Mayweather Junior looks for a remarkable 45th career win against the insatiable Mexican 23-year-old Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

The Mexican will put his WBC and WBA World titles on the line at a catch weight of 152lbs, and he'll hope to capitalise on his greater size and power to secure what would be a priceless, career-defining win over Mayweather.

Mayweather v Alvarez

The MGM Grand in Las Vegas is a fitting arena for a fight of such magnitude and, at the age of 36, there is a groundswell of opinion that the man 13 years his junior will finally be the one to crack the Mayweather code.

At the age of just 23, Alvarez has already amassed a quite incredible 42 wins from 43 fights; he drew his fifth fight back in 2006. It wasn't until the last couple of years that he really announced himself as an elite level fighter, and he's since gone on to win the WBC and WBA's super world titles, which he'll defend in September against Mayweather.
