If I wanted to I could write 1000 words on how Canelo can beat Floyd Mayweather (I sort of already did that more or less here), but I don’t want to insult your intelligence.
You don’t have to be a boxing expert to figure this out.
The only way Canelo can win is if a YOLO punch connects. He doesn’t have the skill set to outbox Floyd Mayweather, he simply has to connect with the Tarver punch. He can’t just hurt Floyd or buzz him a little, he has to Pacquiao him.
Is it possible?
Sure, it’s boxing anything is possible, but Floyd Mayweather is smarter than any boxer in the business. He simply won’t allow Canelo get close enough to land anything significant. We can hope for some dramatic moments, but the likely outcome is a boxing lesson from Floyd Mayweather unless….
Don’t count on that though.
