Default Re: Canelo vs Mayweather? Official?

What I figured on prior to this 'news' yesterday:

Losing a decision to Money in a PPV that could do 1.8 on a mexican holiday isn't nearly as 'damaging' as the chance of dropping one to an unknown in (Freshwater) Trout

It isn't as if Alvarez can't beat Trout either, but I think they make him wait.

That's a damn good point (re: Cotto-Saul) but perhaps after two convincing Cotto losses, it's now best served being billed as the co-feature of Floyd-Guerrero.
