As seen in an update from www.HustleBoss.com on Friday, Sept. 13, former two-division world champion Roger Mayweather was seen speaking at the weigh-in for his nephew Floyd and his forthcoming opponent, WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.
Mayweather vs. Alvarez is one of the biggest showdowns in the history of the sport, yet Roger has seemed to have no worries about the young champion from Mexico regardless of how much support the 23-year old titlist has received from his country.
"Floyd's the biggest thing in boxing," Roger would state, seeming to brush off any danger of young Alvarez.
Mayweather vs. Alvarez takes place later tonight from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada and will be televised by Showtime pay per view.
So far, several boxing fans and insiders seem to be pointing towards a Mayweather victory given his vast experience, ring acumen, and overall ability.
The buzz throughout the MGM Grand has been pretty noteworthy, as this event has garnered tremendous attention both from hardcore followers and mainstream viewers.
Expect more updates from fight week in Las Vegas in the coming hours.
