Floyd Mayweather very well may be coming off of a virtuoso performance on Sept. 14 in Las Vegas, where he dominated a very dangerous Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez over twelve rounds, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a few struggles for the sport’s pound for pound king as he moves forward in his career.

Simply put, Mayweather was so sharp against Alvarez that his performance not only beguiled his 36 years of age, it also left the boxing public wondering who exactly is left on the horizon that can actually challenge him.

Sharing his thoughts on Mayweather’s latest outing, former multi-division titlist Nonito Donaire was quick to give praise.

“He’s an amazing fighter,” Donaire stated. “As much as you may not like Floyd or anything like that, Floyd has the right to brag. He has the right to say whatever he wants. Because he’s on top.”

According to a report from Elisinio Castillo at BoxingScene.com, former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. doesn’t appear to be sold on the popularity of his countryman and rival Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.

The former WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion, Alvarez is coming off of a one-sided loss at the hands of Floyd Mayweather on Sept. 14. It was recently revealed that the Showtime pay per view event generated an estimated 2.2 million purchases while becoming the highest-grossing event in boxing history, with revenue nearing $150 million.

While many have attributed a large portion of those numbers towards Alvarez’s popularity, Chavez disagrees.

“Canelo never scored big numbers with the events organized by HBO,” stated Chavez. “His highest rating was 1.0 while my fight against Marco Antonio Rubio had an audience of 1.9. Canelo is only popular in Mexico and mostly because of the great support he has from [Televisa].”

WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin is a few weeks into his latest training camp inside of the Summit Gym in Big Bear, Calif. ahead of his Nov. 2 HBO clash with Curtis Stevens.

While the fight with the ultra-confident Stevens figures to deliver fireworks, much of the talk surrounding Golovkin seems to center around his potential list of opponents, as anyone between 154 and 168 pounds with credentials seems to be of interest to his team.

Last week in Las Vegas, Floyd Mayweather offered up a virtuoso performance over twelve rounds in thoroughly outclassing then junior middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Always one to keep up with the boxing schedule, Golovkin spoke on Mayweather’s latest showcase.

“Yeah, I saw,” Golovkin affirmed. “It was a good fight. Floyd is very good. He’s a good boxer; he’s a good fighter.”

On Wednesday afternoon, Puerto Rican star and three-division world champion Miguel Cotto held an open media workout with his trainer Freddie Roach inside of a newly-renovated gym right beneath the famed Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles.

A promotional free agent and one of the biggest attractions in the sport, Cotto is again working with his original promoter Top Rank ahead of his Oct. 5 date against former title challenger Delvin Rodriguez.

Cotto vs. Rodriguez isn’t looked at as the most enticing of matchups on paper, and that’s why much of the talk at the open workout seemed to center around Cotto’s options moving forward.

Mexican superstar Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is coming off of a one-sided majority decision loss to Floyd Mayweather this past weekend in Las Vegas, yet he still remains one of the biggest names in the sport and could make for an attractive opponent for Cotto next year.

Floyd Mayweather once again reminded the boxing world that he is the game’s premier performer by thoroughly outclassing Mexican superstar Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez this past weekend in Las Vegas.

Inside of a sold-out MGM Grand Garden Arena, Mayweather seemed to effortlessly control the action against his 23-year old foe over the course of twelve rounds. Mayweather did as he pleased on both the offensive and defensive ends before walking out of the building with a majority decision nod as well as his 45th professional victory in as many fights.

There was no one with a better view of the action as Mayweather’s father and trainer Floyd Sr.

Shortly after his son’s triumph, Floyd Sr. shared his thoughts on his performance as well as some dismay towards the 114-114 scorecard issued by judge C.J. Ross.

“I thought he did a beautiful job,” Floyd Sr. stated at the post-fight press conference. “The only thing I didn’t like is that they were talking about a draw. There’s no way in hell that could have been a draw. No way, no means, by any way.
