SAUL "CANELO" ALVAREZ returns to action this weekend when he meets fellow
Mexican Alfredo Angulo in Las Vegas.
The flame haired Mexican last boxed in September when he was
outclassed over 12 rounds by Floyd Mayweather Jr in a contest many
tipped him to win.
Alvarez is fancied to overcome heavy handed Angulo, but needs an
impressive win to prove he has recovered from his only career
BoxNation looks at how much ring success Mayweather's ten
opponents before Alvarez had after they had been dominated by the
world's number one boxer.
The omens are not good for Alvarez who has already had 44
professional contests and is just 23 years old.
There has been a few great wins, but plenty of high profile
losses for Floyd's victims since losing to him. There combined
records since losing to Floyd are 25-22-1
Guerrero hasn't boxed since being outclassed by Mayweather last
May. There is talk he could face Amir Khan on May 3 on the
The Puerto Rican great gave a good account when losing on points
to Mayweather in May 2012. He lost to Austin Trout on his return,
but thrashed high end club fighter Delvin Rodriguez in three rounds
last October. He faces Sergio Martinez in June when we might see
whether Mayweather finished him off as a top class boxer.
Ortiz's career has nose-dived since being KO'd in four by
Mayweather in a foul infested fight back in September 2011. Since
then, he suffered a broken jaw and was forced to retire after nine
rounds against Josesito Lopez, and a second round loss against Luis
Collazo last month possibly ended Ortiz's 36 fight career.
Old stager Shane is still rolling on, but done nothing of note
since his points loss in May 2010 - going 1-3-1. His only win came
last May against fringe contender Pablo Cesar Cano, beating him
115-113 on all three cards. He barely won a round against Manny
Pacquaio and Saul Alvarez. He recently lost in seven against
JUAN MANUEL MARQUEZ
The brilliant Mexican was too small to give Mayweather any test
and went down on points in September 2009. He is 5-2 since then
losing to controversially to Manny Pacquiao and then to Tim Bradley
last October. In December 2012 he met 'Pacman' for the fourth time
and finally toppled him with a sixth round KO.
Hatton was 43-0 when he was hammered in ten rounds by
Mayweather, and his career never truly recovered afterwards despite
a good stoppage win over Paulie Malignaggi. He barely beat Juan
Lazcano, but was horribly beaten by Manny Pacquiao. When he
returned after three years in November 2012, Ricky lost in nine
against Vyacheslav Senchenko on one of British boxing's saddest
OSCAR DE LA HOYA
Mayweather had his toughest night when he got a split decision
win over Oscar in a fight that did record breaking numbers in May
2007. De La Hoya beat Forbes in his comeback a year later, but his
career was famously finished off by Manny Pacquiao. He has also had
The Argentine had lost nine times before he was virtually
shut-out by Mayweather, but had been on an unbeaten 21 fight streak
and defeated Arturo Gatti in his previous bout. He hasn't boxed
since 2012, but in contests since Floyd is 6-5 and not registered a
Judah has boxed 14 times since losing on points against
Mayweather in April 2006. He did briefly hold the IBF
light-welterweight title in 2011, but Amir Khan took that in his
first defence and seems to come unstuck when he fights the best.
Miguel Cotto, Joshua Clottey, Danny Garcia and Paulie Malignaggi
have all beaten him since the Floyd loss.
He had been hammered by Kostya Tszyu two fights before
Mayweather stopped him in six rounds back in November 2005.
Mitchell had just two more bouts after, outpointing Jose Luis Cruz
before 30-0 Paul William knocked him out in four rounds.
