Quotes and photo from yesterday's media event. Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez' opposition.
Floyd "Money" Mayweather stated:
"Did Canelo KO Austin Trout? This is a whole different ballgame. He may be predicting a knockout but all you have to do is look at the opponents he's faced. I really don't know too many, but a lot of the guys went the distance with him. And we're not just talking about A-fighters but D- and C-fighters. Guys that he should have knocked out in the fourth round, they were able to go into the eighth and ninth rounds even though they were caught with numerous shots.'
Mayweather added: "I don't think Ricky Hatton's brother (Matthew Hatton) is on the level of a Floyd Mayweather.''
"THE ONE: MAYWEATHER VS. CANELO'' goes down on Saturday, Sept. 14., live on SHOWTIME PPV®.
