Another man up, another man down.

Floyd Mayweather made easy work of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, defeating the previously unbeaten Mexican by majority decision. With the win, Mayweather sent a resounding message to the rest of the boxing community: None of you will be able to beat me. 

Most of us already knew this, of course. Mayweather was 44-0 coming into this fight, and it's not like he was challenged in most of those wins. He has consistently annihilated the best boxers on the planet, embarrassing even the most talented and experienced opponents.

However, one would think that Mayweather would be slowing down at this point. The man is 36 years old, which is ancient in a sport where your only job is to fight another man in an enclosed space. Logic would suggest that, eventually, some young upstart would come along and put the old man to rest. 

That young upstart was supposed to be Alvarez. He had every tool that the man who finally beats Mayweather should have. He is young, big, experienced. Like Mayweather, he entered this fight unbeaten. Unlike Mayweather, he stepped out of the ring a defeated man.

For the rest of the world's top-notch boxers, this must have been a very discouraging fight. Alvarez is most likely the second best fighter in the world, and Mayweather made him look like just another sparring partner.

Mayweather was fighting Alavarez on Saturday, but it was other boxers who were truly hurt by this performance. Amir Khan, Danny Garcia, Adrien Broner? All of them watched this fight, and despite their tough-guy routines, they had to have been scared.

Floyd Mayweather is the best boxer alive. The fans know it. Floyd knows it. And if they didn't before, every other world-class boxer knows it.
