Mayweather Ready To End Alvarez’ Unbeaten Streak

Mayweather Ready To End Alvarez’ Unbeaten Streak

Floyd Mayweather has said he is not worried about his opponent Saul Alvarez as the two unbeaten fighters face each other in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

 

Mayweather has won all 44 of his fights whilst Alvarez has won 42 with one draw in his 43 bouts.

 

What Alvarez has on his side is age and at 23 he is 13 years younger than his American opponent.

 

Both boxers are confident going into the fight but Mayweather says he is better than any other fighter in the world, Sky Sports report.

 

"Alvarez hasn't faced 42 Floyd Mayweathers, because he'd be 0-42, so I don't really worry about who he's faced,” said Mayweather.

 

"Whatever any fighter can do good, I can do great. I was born to be here, to be at this level.

 

"I'm at the pinnacle, I'm the face of boxing, and I'm dedicated to my craft."

 

Alvarez was equally confident, stating he is ready to come out of the fight as winner once again.

 

"We had a great preparation. We feel great - ready for Saturday.

 

"We're just waiting for the day, and we're ready to win like always. We prepared like never before. You can be sure that on Saturday we will win."

 

Alvarez brings the WBC and WBA Super belts to the fight, titles both held by Mayweather in the light-middleweight division in the past.

 

BBC Sport report that Mayweather will earn roughly £29million for the fight whilst Alvarez will only bag £6.4million.
