No blueprint to beat me, boasts Floyd
MANILA, Philippines – Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is not concerned about the game plan that Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will use in their much-hyped clash on September 14 in Las Vegas.
Alvarez, who is aiming to give Mayweather his first-ever professional defeat, has said numerous times that he is working on a game plan to bring down the American.
But during an episode of the reality series “All Access,” Mayweather pointed out that no one has figured out a blueprint to defeat him, not even “The Golden Boy,” Oscar de la Hoya.
“It’s damn near 20 years,” Mayweather said. “Y’all ain’t got the game plan yet? It’s obvious. There is no game plan.”
Mayweather pointed out that De La Hoya, who lost to Mayweather in 2007, tried to give the “blueprint” to other fighters, all of whom failed as well.
“Oscar tried to give Ricky Hatton the blueprint. Ricky Hatton lost. Oscar tried to give (Juan Manuel) Marquez the blueprint; he lost. Shane Mosley, he lost. (Victor) Ortiz, Robert Guerrero, they lost,” Mayweather said.
“Oscar will try to give Canelo the blueprint, and he will lose,” he stressed.
Alvarez, however, shrugged off Mayweather’s words.
“He knows it’s going to be a tough fight,” Alvarez said in the same episode. “That’s why he talks and acts like he does… I can assure you, he won’t beat me.”
