This Saturday, pound-for-pound boxing king and race relations expert Floyd Mayweather will look to improve his unblemished record to 45-0 when he takes on the least Mexican-looking Mexican of all time, 42-0-1 Canelo Alvarez. Approximately 14 belts will be on the line and Mayweather is already guaranteed 41.5 million dollars (!!!) for the fight, money that he will more than likely record himself flushing down a toilet at a nearby Denny’s in the days afterward. Needless to say, we could not be more amped for this one.
As is tradition, Showtime has previewed the upcoming blockbuster fight with a series of “All Access” specials giving us a behind the scenes look at both men’s training camps. You will hear Mayweather touch on all the bullet points he’s become known for — his fame, his fortune, “I am boxing,” me, me, ME! — while battling an opponent he has been unable to defeat his entire life: Third person self-narrative. You will also hear Alvarez dish on respect and roosters with Golden Boy President, Oscar De La Hoya, who insists that Alvarez will finish Mayweather inside of eight rounds. We’d love to believe him, but many a man have made such a claim (or something similar to it) only to be outgunned by the WBC welterweight and WBA (Super) Light Middleweight champion.
Check out part 1 of “All Access” above. Parts 2 and 3 are after the jump.
