|Mayweather defeated Robert Guerrero in his last outing|
It's been a busy two days or so in the boxing world with some big news, some surprising and some not-so-significant announcements.
We'll start with the biggest: Floyd Mayweather Jr. will go up against Saul Alvarez on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It's the biggest fight that could have been made in boxing right now and, thankfully, it's happened. There has been no repeat of the Mayweather-Pacquiao shenanigans.
The fight will be contested at a catchweight of 152lbs, which, if you're being picky, is about the only criticism you can have of this bout. Alvarez competes in the 154lb division, so a drop of two pounds had to be agreed upon in order to pry Mayweather away from the comforts of welterweight.
