Alvarez's training, which began in the mountains of Big Bear, Calif., has been planned down to the smallest detail to give him the lungs and legs to go the distance and to match those of an opponent renowned for his conditioning. That high-altitude work and Canelo's youth could give him a slight edge. But how can one pick against Mayweather's form after his manifesto against Robert Guerrero, especially given how little punishment he took in that fight and how sharp he should be in his quickest ring return in years?

Advantage: Mayweather
