Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez Fight: LIVE UPDATES On Pay-Per-View Boxing Match


Two fighters are putting their undefeated records on the line.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0) faces Canelo Alvarez (42-0-1) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Ever since Mayweather first announced the fight in May, anticipation has built for the WBA/WBC junior middleweight title unification bout on Showtime pay-per-view between one the sport's all-time greats and one of its up-and-coming stars.

At 23-years-old, Alvarez is more than a decade younger than his opponent. Set to make $41 million, Mayweather will be taking a record haul, win or lose. The oddsmakers believe Mayweather, 36, will be tabulating his earnings at a victory party, favoring him 2 1/2-1.

"I've been here before. I know what it takes," Mayweather said ahead of the fight, via The Associated Press. "I was born to be here, born to be at this level."

Will Alvarez rise to that level? Or will Mayweather leave the ring at 45-0?
