Bigger, stronger and younger many believed Alvarez to be the biggest threat (other than Pacquiao) to defeat Mayweather. Coming into the bout Alvarez was also an undefeated champion. Yet, the affair wasn’t even close. Although older and the naturally smaller man, Mayweather outboxed Canelo from the opening bell and never permitted Canelo to put together any type of a rally. The victory was significant because it came at a time when many fighters begin to see a decline in their performance, skills and body. Not Mayweather. Like a fine wine Floyd just seems to be getting better with age.
