Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. was a guest at Miami Heat practice Sunday. Mayweather is a regular courtside visitor to Heat games, but the team’s practice court is typically off-limits to visitors.
Canelo Alvarez proved nothing more than easy money for Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Alvarez and Mayweather are fighting at a catch-weight of 152 pounds, which, if you’re looking for an edge, would probably point to Alvarez, the naturally larger man. But Mayweather has a way of making larger men look small.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has never lost a professional fight and will walk out of his latest fight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on Saturday with a record purse of $41.5 million.
In a city of high rollers, on one of the biggest betting days of the year, the head of Golden Boy Promotions is taking the biggest gamble of all. He’s got $60 million on the line that Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Canelo Alvarez will not only deliver a great fight, but deliver at the box office, too.
