Floyd Mayweather Announces He Will Fight Canelo Alvarez at MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Sept. 14

Come Sept. 14, the Vegas lights will be shining bright, and one boxer will likely go home with his first career loss.

Floyd Mayweather, Jr. (44-0, 26 KOs) will fight Canelo Alvarez at the MGM Grand this fall in Las Vegas, according to a tweet sent from the undefeated welterweight champion’s Twitter account Wednesday. Mayweather is coming off of a dominant victory earlier this month against interim titleholder Robert Guerrero.

Mayweather will be looking to extend his win streak to 45 against arguably the best 154-pounder in the world. Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KOs) recently took control of two world titles after an April 20 victory over Austin Trout. Even though it seems there is still no progress towards the Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight that the world has been waiting for, Mayweather insists the fans will be in for a treat.
