CANELO SEES 152-POUND WEIGHT LIMIT AS AN ADVANTAGE:

"No, not at all; it's not going to bother me at all. I feel good. I feel very, very good," stated undefeated jr. middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, who reiterated that he won't have any problems making the 152-pound weight limit for his highly-anticipated September 14 showdown with undefeated pound-for-pound Floyd "Money" Mayweather. As far as Canelo is concerned, making the weight won't have any negative impact on his performance. On the contrary, he believes the lighter weight will actually help him come fight night.

"I've been able to make the weight in the past without a problem. In fact, in my most recent fights. I've been under on the day of the weigh-in. I really don't do that much work, so I think that it's going to be fine," Alvarez explained during a recent conference call to promote the bout. "I feel very, very good right now, and, in fact, I think it's going to help me. I'm going to be a lot faster."
