Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is one boxer who will not forget Floyd Mayweather that easily as the Mexican professional boxer has lost only once in his illustrious career, which happens to be against the American.
So the Mexican is aware of the tough fighter in Mayweather and also spoke about the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, which is going to take shape on 2 May at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It is one of the most anticipated fights in modern boxing history.
Alvarez expects the fight between the two to be an attractive one. Fans around the world were eager to witness the bout, which was scheduled to take place some years ago as well, when the boxers were at their prime. But things failed to materialise at the time.
"The fight had to be done for the fans and hopefully it's an attractive fight," Alvarez told fighthype.com.
The fight is going to be an entertaining one with both the boxers already having started their training with sparring partners to keep them in perfect shape for the mega fight, which is expected to shatter all box office records.
Both the boxers have a great record in their illustrious career, but Mayweather's record stands out, as he has not lost a single bout in his professional career. On the other hand, Pacquiao has lost 5 bouts, but that does not undermine the Filipino for the bout.
Having finished second best against Mayweather, Alvarez knows the American's intensity and strategy inside the ring.
When Alvarez was asked as to what makes Mayweather so difficult to fight, he replied: "He doesn't expose anything. He is a fighter that if with three punches he wins the round from you, he's fine with that."
Mayweather has knocked out 26 of his 47 opponents he has faced.
"He doesn't care in what way he wins as long as he wins."
But Mayweather is not going to find it easy against the Filipino who is a different boxer as compared to the boxers that the American has faced in the past. He is a southpaw and very quick on his feet, who can move from here to there in a matter of seconds.
This bout against the Filipino is going to be the toughest test for Mayweather, who last fought Marcos Maidana last September.
