Missing just a minute of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs. Floyd "Money" Mayweather would be calamitous.

"The One" is being hyped as one of the most anticipated fights of all time, and considering the millions upon millions of dollars it is predicted to haul in, it's hard to argue against that fact. 

Not only are Money (44-0, 26 KO) and Canelo (42-0-1, 30 KO) both undefeated, but they are essentially direct opposites—whether it be their look, their approach or their style inside the ring. 

This is a tantalizing fight in every single aspect, and as long as it doesn't fall completely flat, it will likely go down in boxing lore as a truly memorable night.

Unless you are a proponent of avoiding really awesome, scintillating events, you probably aren't going to want to miss it. So, here's a look at everything you need to know in order to take in Saturday's important piece of boxing history. 


When: Pay-per-view broadcast starts at 9 p.m. ET. Mayweather and Canelo should begin walking out at around 12 a.m. ET. 

Where: MGM Grand Las Vegas

Viewing Information: PPV. You can order here.


The hype building up "The One" isn't difficult to comprehend. 

On one side of the ring you've got Floyd Mayweather. If the 36-year-old isn't already the greatest defensive fighter of all time, he is certainly inching his way closer every time he picks apart an opponent like he did Robert Guerrero in May. 

If someone is going to break through the wall, however, it's Canelo. 

The 23-year-old Mexican is an amalgam of power, accuracy and offense. According to Compubox, he is first in the world in both connect percentage (42 percent) and power punch connect percentage (52 percent). 

Moreover, while the undefeated Money has faced his share of champions, Canelo marks just the third undefeated opponent he has ever battled. 

So, yeah, missing this one would be a huge mistake
