I try not to be bias as a fan of Floyed, with that I said I do feel he will win in two weeks.

But make no mistake, there is real danger in front of him. I give Canelo a real chance in this fight and not just a punchers chance.

As the fight draws closer Im starting to feel a win in Canelo's favor would be better for the sport. Not only would it generate huge interest in a rematch but also reshape the current landscape.

Floyed is always prepared so a loss wouldn't be fluke, and Canelo should get all the credit he would deserve. And Ipersonally wouldn't be too upset being its a young skilled opponent as opposed to some bum with a hard shot.

This isn't a tactical thread, but on the business side of things what would be better for the sport? Not just with this fight but any upcoming fight...

Marquez winning over Bradley (which I feel he will)

Matthyse over Garcia...

Im happy these fights are taking place because there is a real chance for the sport to go in a different direction

It would be great for GB and Showtime. They stand to gain the most out of it. Outside of Mexicans, people honestly have no idea who Saul is. They know who Mayweather is. If the top dog loses will people still be interested in boxing? That 0 is what keeps Floyd important and I doubt if he will take one for boxing, that means keeping money from his account in the long run. That ain't going to happen. And no way is he going to let Oscar smile and be happy in his demise, Floyd isn't a stupid dude.

Plus, if Saul wins, that means he has to fight top competition from here on out.
