Llegó el día, hoy uno de los dos conocerá la derrota.

Este sábado en Las Vegas, Nevada, Saúl 'Canelo' Alvarez enfrentará la prueba de fuego de su carrera, nada más y nada menos que al mejor púgil libra por libra del planeta, Floyd Mayweather Jr., con los títulos súper welter del CMB y la AMB en juego.

El duelo de invictos ha acaparado la atención mundial pese a la diferencia de trayectorias: Mayweather cuenta entre sus victimas a legendarios nombres como Oscar de la Hoya, Juan Manuel Márquez, Shane Mosley, Ricky Hatton, Miguel Cotto o Zab Judah. Ocho de los peleadores a los que ha derrotado son mexicanos, lo que habla de un dominio pleno de su estilo, calificado por los especialistas como defensivo.

En la otra esquina está 'Canelo', un fenómeno mediático de 23 años, profesional desde los 15. En 42 pleitos siempre ha salido avante, pero la categoría de la mayoría de sus rivales es baja. Su triunfo más brillante fue el último ante Austin Trout por decisión unánime, Josesito López, Kermit Cintrón y Shane Mosley, son otros contrincantes destacados en su récord.

Las apuestas dan como amplio favorito al nativo de Michigan. El choque de estilos puede dar como resultado una pelea explosiva aunque la táctica de Mayweather es evitar el intercambio de golpes, el arma más poderosa del azteca.

El lleno en el MGM Grand de Las Vegas está garantizado, el nombre de estos dos peleadores hizo que los boletos se agotaran en minutos, dejando una derrama económica sólo por taquilla de 20 millones de dólares.

La Comisión Atlética de Nevada designó al experimentado Kenny Bayless, para ser el tercero sobre la superficie.

La función The One presenta una cartelera de lujo con un combate preliminar de alto voltaje entre el argentino Lucas Matthysse, noqueador por naturaleza y el contragolpeador de origen boricua, Danny 'Swift' García.
