Floyd Mayweather Looks Unbeatable After Victory Against Canelo Alvarez
There should be no doubts after Floyd "Money" Mayweather showed that he is still at the top of his game, beating Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in "The One" in Las Vegas.
Although he entered the fight at a perfect 44-0, some wondered if age would affect Mayweather in this bout. The 36-year-old was going up against a much younger fighter, and the difference in styles was intriguing.
The veteran used the same technique that he always has on his way to yet another victory. He was quick with his counters and moved around enough to frustrate Alvarez.
Entering the big showdown, Mayweather and Alvarez were expected to test each other's weaknesses. Canelo uses power to beat his opponents, but he wasn't going to be able outlast Mayweather if this fight went the distance. On the other side, Money hasn't shown a big weakness in his career.
The only part of his game that could be considered a weakness is his inability to get knockouts. He has just 26 knockouts in 45 matches, and he has only one in six bouts since 2008.
Canelo was unable to show the world how to beat Mayweather, so the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world proved that he is unbeatable.
The 36-year-old may not have many fights left in his career, but he will not be beaten as long as he stays sharp with his technique. There isn't a quicker fighter than Mayweather. He is able to move his body around to avoid blows and limit the impact.
Alvarez was unable to land many of his punches, so his power became irrelevant.
Before Saturday night, Alvarez's power seemed to be a strength that would give Money problems. Once the fight got underway, though, it was clear that Canelo wasn't going to be able to pull off the upset.
Money's defensive approach in the ring makes him unbeatable. Great footwork allows him to avoid his opponent, and it also lets him strike on quick counters. Opponents are often too slow to stop Money's quick attacks, especially late in fights.
Will Floyd Mayweather ever lose a fight?
By the time "The One" reached the later rounds, Alvarez was too worn out by Mayweather's quickness. That's when Money put all of the doubt to rest. He landed many punches late in the fight to secure the victory, which was only the latest in a storied career.
Money continues to fight against tough competition, and he has come out on top each time. Miguel Cotto, Robert Guerrero and now Alvarez have all been defeated by Mayweather. Each challenger has managed to go the distance, but none of the them was able to walk away victorious.
Mayweather's latest victory should send a message to the boxing world. Money still has a perfect technique that will be impossible to beat, so any challenger should prepare to walk away disappointed.
