Crucial Mistakes Floyd Mayweather Must Avoid vs. Canelo Alvarez

Bleacher Report

Recommended Posts

The words Floyd Mayweather and mistake don't often collide in the same sentence.

He's boxing's top pound-for-pound fighter, undefeated in 44 professional bouts and has rarely even been challenged in the ring, much less beaten. He doesn't make mistakes. He makes you make them, and then he makes you pay.

But he's never faced an opponent who presents the level of danger he'll see from Saul "Canelo" Alvarez on Sept. 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Canelo is younger, stronger and, some would even argue, hungrier at this stage of his career than Mayweather. It's a testament to how dangerous Canelo is that opinion is divided over who will emerge victorious when they finally step in the ring.

When was the last time that happened—when has it ever happened—in a Mayweather fight? The consensus is still that Floyd will emerge victorious, and he might well do just that, but he'll need to avoid making these crucial mistakes.
