Floyd Mayweather took to social media to announce that his next fight would be on September 14 and it is against Canelo Alvarez. Showtime guaranteedMayweather around $200 million earlier this year.
Alvarez last fought last month in San Antonio against Austin Trout and won a unanimous decision. Alvarez is very popular and has a massive following. The fight will take place in Las Vegas September 14 at the MGM Grand.
Mayweather’s last seven bouts were in Las Vegas. Mayweather who is undefeated at 44-0 has been criticized frequently for handpicking his opponents. Earlier this month he beat Roberto Guerrero in a unanimous decision, and event that resulted in a loss of $12 million for Showtime.
Alvarez is a much more credible opponent with a record of 42-0-1, and Showtime will more than make up the loss with this fight.
The possibility of Mayweather’s perfect record being tainted is he used to draw for the pay-per-view audience. The bout is likely to top the 1.5 million audience for Mayweather-Cotto
