Meanwhile, In Boxing: Floyd Mayweather Chooses Saul “Canelo” Alvarez for September 14th Title Fight

Fresh off a 12-round drubbing of Robert Guerrero earlier in the month, undefeated and outspoken WBC and The Ring welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather has just booked his second fight in a year for the first time in six. Years that is. “Money” will meet WBC and The Ring *light middleweight* champion Saul “El Conelo” Alvarez, a 42-0 Mexican-born boxer who holds 30 knockouts and notable victories over Shane Mosley, Austin Trout, and Jose Cotto to his credit.

Mayweather made the announcement via his Twitter yesterday evening:

The bout will be contested at 152 pounds — just 2 pounds under the usual light middleweight limit — and will be for Mayweather’s junior middleweight and welterweight titles, Alvarez’s WBC & The Ring light middleweight titles, and the WBA (super) light middleweight title. Looks like Nate Diaz’s “More divisions, more champions, more superfights” theory can already be considered debunked.

Considering Mayweather’s longtime standing as the “pound-for-pound pay-per-view king,” as well as the pull an undefeated Hispanic challenger like Alvarez will have in the Latino community, expect the pay-per-view sales for this one to break the 1 million mark. Us racist white skinheads will have to continue watching a couple of homosexuals roll around on the ground in the meantime. *kicks can*

Ava. even though Jacob`s st0rry is impossible... on saturday I got a gorgeous Ariel Atom after having earned $5185 this - five weeks past and in excess of ten-k last-munth. this is certainly the easiest-work I've had. I started this 8-months ago and pretty much straight away brought home more than $77... per/hr. I went to this web-site,, ======Grand4.com=====

$72 an hour? Damn. Is that standard missionary or is plowing the balloon knot extra?

I don't quite think canelo ready, he showed improved defense but I think mayweather too smart. Canelo might pull off an upset kid got heaters, still think he shoulda had another fight

Floyd talked all that shit about Manny fighting at catchweights and what does he do? Fights at a catchweight.
Like Wesley Snipes calling the kettle black.

They need all those belts to keep their shorts up so high.

Only for the junior middleweight and welterweight titles, eh? I was hoping that the super-ultra-mega-welterweight strap would be on the line too.
