SAN DIEGO, September 14, 2013 – Two undefeated boxers with devoted fans meet in one of the most highly anticipated and exciting match-ups to come along in some time. Floyd Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) and Canelo Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KOs) vie for the unoffical title of best pound for pound boxer in the world.
The event gets underway at 9 p.m ET/6 p.m. PT on Showtime PPV. The fight will also be shown in movie theaters in the United States, as well as countless bars and living rooms. Our Communities live online chat starts at 9 p.m. ET with real time updates and photos.
Mayweather is a defensive genius, deflecting even the best efforts of determined fighters to get to him, while patiently waiting for opportunities to pick fighters apart and do damage. Alvarez is the underdog and may not remain undefeated after Saturday, but he has nothing to lose. Alvarez possesses one attribute that cannot be manufactured: the confidence of youth. If Alvarez firmly believes he’s the heir apparent and refuses to buy into the Mayweather myth, it will protect him from falling victim to Mayweather’s mind games, and that’s a plus for him.
The undercard offers an equally exciting contest for fans, junior welterweights Lucas Matthysse of Argentina and Danny Garcia of Philadelphia. The televised PPV will include junior middleweights Ishe Smith and Carlos Molina, and welterweights Pablo Cesar Cano and Ashley Theophane.
