When Mayweather fought De La Hoya, he had to go up in weight because De La Hoya was the bigger money maker. When De La Hoya wanted to fight PAcquiao he had to move down to 147 because at that point in time Pacquiao was the money maker.

I would love Mayweather to fight Canelo as I think he would beat him. I also don't have an issue of him demanding the fight take place at 147. Why should he give this young lion a 30 pound advantage? Mayweather will be just fine staying at 147.

Oscar fought Pac because he's the No. 1 P4P fighter in the world and the second biggest moneymaker. Oscar still was the biggest moneymaker at that time and not Pac.

ah true about DLH always being the money maker..but DLH thought it would be an easy fight and it was a good pay day for him.

FLOYD "MONEY" MAYWEATHER TO FACE SAUL "CANELO" ALVAREZ IN JR. MIDDLEWEIGHT UNIFICATION ON SEPTEMBER 14

By Ben Thompson | May 29, 2013

Sources close to the information have informed us that a deal has been reached for a mega-fight showdown between undefeated pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather and undefeated jr. middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. The bout will take place on September 14, the coveted weekend of Mexican Independence Day, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and televised live on Showtime Pay-Per-View. Although all of the details still remain unclear at this point, we're told that it will indeed be a jr. middleweight unification bout.

Mayweather is coming off of a dominant lopsided unanimous decision victory over top contender Robert Guerrero earlier this month. Although he was defending his WBC welterweight [147 lbs.] title in that bout, Mayweather also holds the WBA "super" jr. middleweight [154 lbs.] title, which he won in May of 2012 when he defeated former champion Miguel Cotto via unanimous decision. Alvarez, the reigning WBC jr. middleweight champion, also picked up a form of the WBA title when he defeated the previously undefeated "regular" champion Austin Trout via unanimous decision this past April. If it sounds confusing, all that really matters is that, as previously stated, the bout will take place in the jr. middleweight division and both the WBC and WBA titles will reportedly be on the line.

Mayweather himself confirmed the news of FightHype's story moments ago when he tweeted: "I chose my opponent for September 14th and it's Canelo Alvarez. I'm giving the fans what they want. It will be at the MGM Grand." We've also just been informed that both sides agreed to face each other at a weight of 152 pounds.

He should have fought him at 150. Seems dumb for him to have to come up to a weight he is clearly not comfortable at...

lol catchweight meh whateva. Great fight for boxing. Matthysse vs Garcia and Mayweather vs Canelo back to back weeks? Man September can't come soon enough. The last time I wanted the summer to already be over was 99 with Trinidad vs De La Hoya. Probably will do around 1.8-2.0 million buys

I feel like its a huge mistake for Canelo to fight Floyd this fast but you can't be mad at the man for taking what will likely be a 20 mil payday
