LAS VEGAS -- Floyd Mayweather is a minus-270 favorite to defeat Canelo Alvarez when they meet in a hotly anticipated pay-per-view bout at the MGM Grand Garden for the WBC/WBA super welterweight championships.

Alvarez, 23, is 42-0-1, but has never fought anyone remotely close to as skilled as Mayweather. The long-time pound-for-pound king is 44-0 and was only in danger of losing once, in his first bout against Jose Luis Castillo in 2002.

In this video, I talk about what I believe a key for Alvarez may be in the fight. Beating Mayweather is a difficult task under any circumstance, but Alvarez may make it easier on himself if he adopts this tactic.

Stay tuned to the Yahoo Sports boxing page all week for complete cover of the Mayweather-Alvarez card.
