Mayweather breaks the news himself that he will be fighting Canelo Alvarez on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This comes on the cusp of Alvarez saying he wouldn’t fight Mayweather at anything below Junior Middleweight 154 pound limit. Canelo budged a little bit and that was enough to get a deal done. Biggest fight that can be made. I chose my opponent for September 14th and it's Canelo Alvarez. I'm giving the fans what they want. It will be at the MGM Grand. — Floyd Mayweather (@FloydMayweather) May 30, 2013 The Mayweather-Canelo fight will be contested at a max weight of 152. #boxing — Dan Rafael (@danrafaelespn) May 30, 2013
