I have been uber critical of Floyd "Money" Mayweather for his consistent ability to be nothing more than a glorified head college football coach and deliberately schedule wins rather than challenges but this time he may be taking on a serious opponent.
No, not Manny Pacquiao.
Sign me up.
Money has said he will fight twice in 2013 - once in May and again in September. There may not be any fighter who has avoided contact any better than Money, which would be in direct contrast to Alvarez, who is a serious puncher.
Money will be 36 in February and Alvarez is just 23.
Given their respective ages and the gap in experience this opponent may be a bit too much for Alvarez, but he has to take it. And at some point Money is going to lose.
