Not all, but most fighters and reporters are picking Floyd Mayweather Jr. to defeat Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in their junior middleweight title fight Saturday at MGM Grand in Las Vegas (on Showtime pay-per-view).
Count former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis among them.
“Mayweather will win because of his speed and experience,” Lewis said. “He’s been at this level before, so that will also be an advantage. He’s the best until proven otherwise. ‘Canelo’ is talented, young, strong and dangerous. Makes it all the more exciting.”
