Mayweather vs Canelo: Floyd opening training camp today

Mike Stobe

Floyd Mayweather is reportedly opening his training camp today in Las Vegas, as he prepares for his September 14 fight against Canelo Alvarez.

According to a report by Chris Robinson, Floyd Mayweather is going to open his training camp today in Las Vegas, as the pound-for-pound king gets ready to defend his throne and his undefeated record on September 14 against Canelo Alvarez.

Mayweather (44-0, 26 KO) is fighting for the second time this year, the first time he's fought twice in a calendar year since 2007. By the time fight night rolls around, it will have been just four months since Mayweather easily defeated Robert Guerrero.

The quick turnaround is a welcome boost to boxing's overall media profile, as Mayweather fights always draw big-time attention, and this one figures to be huge. The fight is already sold out and major numbers are expected on Showtime pay-per-view, as well.

Camp starting today will give Mayweather the standard eight weeks to get ready for the fight, and his father and trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr expects this fight to be no more difficult than the Guerrero win:

"Like I said, we look for Canelo to come and do what he can do but what he can do ain't enough. ... As you can see, Floyd was very, very calm when he fought Guerrero. I don't see it being no different with this fight or any other fight. My son has been in this ring for years and years and years now. He's very comfortable in the ring and he knows what he's doing."

Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO) started training about a month ago, and is reportedly already down to 165 pounds for the 152-pound catchweight fight.
