"Canelo's a young, strong, hungry champion; undefeated. He's 42 and 0, but I do see a flaw," stated undefeated pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather, who recently appeared on Shade 45 to speak with DJ Whoo Kid about a number of topics, including his highly-anticipated September 14 showdown with undefeated jr. middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.
"He has a draw. And you know, but I can't overlook this guy. He's tough, he's hungry, I'm dedicated to my craft," Mayweather continued, making sure he pointed out the lone blemish on Canelo's career, a 4-round draw against Jorge Juarez, whose record was 3-5 at the time of the fight, which took place in June of 2006. Although it was only Canelo's 5th professional fight, it's clear that Mayweather has already begun doing his homework on his opponent.
"I'm going to be honest. I thought that the Trout and Canelo fight was a lot closer than they had it," Mayweather added, also noting Canelo's latest performance, a 12-round unanimous decision victory over the previously undefeated Austin Trout.
