Delahoya is hesitant on pulling trigger for Mayweather vs Canelo

By Kevin Davis

   

Oscar Delahoya may be many things but he's not stupid. He knows he has a future superstar in Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, he is already breaking records by being next to Floyd 'Money' Mayweather on the PPV cards. His name is known by those who hardly watch the sport, but even though Oscar trusts his young pupils skill and desire. A fight against Mayweather is a whole other dimension. 

   

Canelo being very overzealous about facing Mayweather, should relax let Mayweather get a little bit older and wait for the right moment, like Delahoya believe is the right move. Richard Schaefer, Golden Boy Ceo, feels very confident in making the fight because he mostly backs Mayweather, no matter what Canelo does. He will always be Oscar's fighter until Mayweather is retired. then he will become the leading face of Golden Boy. 

    

The issue of making such a fight is that it can go a few ways, with the fact that Canelo losing being the highest. They can live with that result, but they cannot live with an outclassing of Canelo. That will destroy the progress made in creating his persona. Alvarez has got the goods and is not a fraud, but it's time to prove that he is what many feels that he is, no more soft touches.
