Roger Mayweather: Saul Alvarez would give Floyd a fight, but he’d still lose

Canelo Alvarez Floyd Mayweather JrBy William Mackay: Roger Mayweather, the trainer for Floyd Mayweather Jr., chimed in on his thoughts about a fight between WBC junior middleweight champion Saul Alvarez and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Roger doesn’t give Alvarez any chances of winning but he thinks Alvarez would come to fight. Alvarez called out Mayweather Jr. last Saturday night after whipping Kermit Cintron by a 5th round TKO. Few people see Mayweather agreeing to fight Alvarez right now because Alvarez still isn’t a well-known fighter in the United States and he’s quite young at only 21.

Speaking with, Roger said “He [Alvarez] can go in there and he likes to be like Floyd. He can come in like Floyd if he wants to, but f**k no, he aint no match. He’d give him a fight though.”

Alvarez has lately been imitating Mayweather’s style of fighting somewhat. Alvarez isn’t going as far as Adrien Broner is in copying Mayweather’s style, but he’s doing some things that look very similar to Mayweather. He’s not as effective as Broner is in imitating Mayweather, though.

Mayweather could possibly be back in the ring on May 5th next year, and Alvarez said he’s agreeable to fighting Mayweather on that date on HBO.
Roger said that Mayweather won’t be fighting Erik Morales, the new WBC light welterweight champion. Roger sees that as too easy of a fight for Mayweather Jr. Instead of him, Roger says that Marcos Maidana, the WBA light welterweight champion, could get the call for Mayweather’s next fight.

I bet that’s going to burn WBA Super World light welterweight champion Amir Khan up, because he’s been talking long and hard about wanting to fight Mayweather Jr. for the past year. And to have Maidana, the fighter that Khan beat, get the call instead of him, it’s going to boil Khan’s kettle if this happens.
