Mayweather vs. Alvarez Prediction
Canelo has never faced a boxer with the defensive skills and speed that Money May will bring to the ring on Saturday.
Mayweather doesn't need to throw more punches than his opponent to be effective. Instead, he relies on his devastating combos and taking advantage of his opponent's mistakes. There's no reason for this game plan to change on Saturday.
If Money May keeps his balance and defends himself from Alvarez's powerful punches and quick jabs, he should be able to survive an early-round storm from Canelo and prolong the bout.
Who wins the main event?
He knows that a strength vs. strength kind of bout doesn't benefit him against the younger, more powerful Alvarez, which is why Mayweather will probably spend most of the first three or four rounds playing defense and counterpunching when possible.
With that said, this won't be a walk in the park for Mayweather. Canelo is a quality opponent and will have moments where he looks to be the better fighter. But as he always does, the 36-year-old legend will find a way to win in the later rounds when his opponent weakens.
Alvarez might represent the future of the sport, but Mayweather's time on top isn't about to end anytime soon. As a fighter with a wealth of high-profile fight experience, expect Money May to keep his perfect record intact with a 45th career victory.
Final Prediction: Mayweather by 11th round KO
