The day is finally upon us as “The One” mega-event is only a few hours away and the world will find out if Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is the real deal or if he will be another number added to the win column of pound-for-pound great Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Alvarez is considered as the toughest opponent for Mayweather since his 2007 split-decision win over the Golden Boy Oscar De La Hoya and the heavy Mexican contingent hopes that Alvarez can catapult his star power into the realm of what De La Hoy once was with a win Saturday night.
While Mayweather will look to add his 45th consecutive victory in as many fights as he fights towards the 49-0 record set by all-time great Rocky Marciano.
