Do you live under a rock? No? Then you probably know what today is. That's right - Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez. Simply put, it's the biggest, most anticipated boxing fight since Mayweather dethroned Oscar De La Hoya back in 2007. It's a fight fans have anticipated long before it was even announced, and one that many fans thought would never materialize. Today, it's finally here.
Showtime Boxing's The One: Mayweather vs. Canelo PPV airs today, Saturday September 14 on PPV live with a fight time of 9:00 p.m. ET, 6:00 p.m. PT. Bloody Elbow will have fight coverage, including results and discussion, right here.
We've already broken down the fight in a number of ways, but at this point, it comes down to one big question: Can Canelo Alvarez actually win? Can he be the man to solve the riddle of Floyd Mayweather and hand the all time great the first loss of his professional career? It's a tall task, and, if you ask our colleagues over at Bad Left Hook, Canelo is not up to it. For another look at this question, I encourage you to check out these Judo Chop breakdowns done by Connor and myself:
In the end, we can put all the thought and analysis into this fight that we want, but we still won't know exactly what's going to happen until tonight. And for any fans of the Sweet Science, tonight can't come soon enough.
Join us right here, live, tonight at Bloody Elbow for all the live fight coverage of Mayweather vs. Canelo.
