Speed

Yes, 13 years will separate Mayweather (36) and Alvarez (23) when they meet Saturday. And no, Floyd doesn't have the legs he once did. If history is any indicator, expect the 17-year pro to take extended breaks along the ropes as his opponent fruitlessly tries to land something significant. That said, Mayweather still has more than enough speed to earn the nod here. One of Alvarez's objectives in training camp was to improve his leg and hand speed, but he could train his whole life and still fail to close the gap. Mayweather is a gale-force wind. Canelo is a summer breeze.


Advantage: Mayweather
