Default Why does Floyd need to fight Alvarez?

You hear these numbskulls talk about how Alvarez is so overrated. You then hear the same numbskulls say Floyd needs to fight him if he wants to prove himself. Huh? Bunch of kids who wouldn't know boxing if Tyson raped them with boxing textbooks.

He doesn't.

It would just be a Superfight in terms of how it's hype and promotion would utterly Ignite the sport in ways no other matchup can or likely will over the next 30 months.

Floyd needs to fight Alvarez because the best need to fight the best.

No one said Alvarez is overrated. They said his status as a p4p fighter is overrated because of his garbage resume.


This fight is an extremely do-able fight.

Because it's a compelling test for Floyd; far more intriguing than anyone (with the exception of Pac) who he could fight at 147.

he symbolizes a young hungry fighter moving up in rank. Floyd has been fighting guys who he handpicks and are not these young strong fighters with momentum.

Floyed don't care about legacy, or he wouldnt be fighting who hes fighting,
he cares about money, and no other fight right now is getting more money.

What's wrong with fighting Canelo the number #1 in his division? How else is someone suppose to progress besides fighting pointless fights?

Because he's so much better than everyone else, that he has to fight someone 22lbs heavier in order for it to be a challenge

Bc Alvarez is a dam good fighter and real threat, and the fight can be made. Why not fight him? Who else he gonna fight? The no hopers at 140 ? Maybe give Alvarez one more fight (Cotto for example) and then make it happen.

Now that Pacquiao got beat canelo is the next guy people want to see. Floyd isn't a true middleweight, he only fought there twice. First against Oscar De La Hoya, at the time Oscar was the man calling the shots. Floyd the new up and comer agreed to all of oscars terms to make the fight so 154 it was. With cotto he wanted to fight him at his comfortable weight, both times he didn't make the 154' limit coming in under it.

I get why people want to see canelo vs mayweather. At this point canelo is the up and comer, demanding and telling Floyd the #1 biggest boxing name what to do is all wrong. Canelo is probably going to have to give a lot to get a fight with Floyd like rehydration limit "the guy came in the ring weighing 172 vs trout". That defeats the Purpose of weight classes and would give him a big advantage. Canelo at 147' if he could make that would be interesting. All I've seen lately are Floyd's a coward cherry picker, why doesn't he fight insert name here. But canelo has asked pleaded and said fight me or else but hasn't said what he's willing to give to make the fight.
