Carl Froch believes Saul Alvarez be a stern test for Floyd Mayweather Jr. but is sure ‘Money’ will be too good in the end.
Mayweather and Alvarez have just started the pre-fight tour before their showdown on September 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
It is a fight that has got many fight fans excited and included in those is IBF and WBA super-middleweight champion Froch.
Alvarez is expected to give Mayweather as tough a test as he has had in a long time and the young Mexican is building quite a reputation after amassing a whopping 43 professional fights at only 22 years old.
‘Canelo’ is unbeaten since making his professional debut at just 15, with 30 of those results being by knockout.
Mayweather will be protecting his 44 for 44 record and Froch believes it is the 36-year-old whom will retain his unblemished record once the final bell sounds.
“I think it’s a great fight. Alvarez is a fantastic talent, he’s a very good man, very strong, very gifted, very skilful,” he told On the Ropes Radio.
“Do I think he can beat Floyd Mayweather? It’d be difficult to beat Floyd Mayweather.
“He [Alvarez] is brilliant but I just think Floyd Mayweather can beat anybody; technically and defensively, I think he’s too good for anyone. Period.”
