If Mayweather Jr. waits until September 21st (during Mexican Independence Day) to fight Canelo Alvarez, and rather fights Guerrero in May(Cinco de Mayo Weekend), he will make a possible $60-80 Million Dollars in 2013, just on those two fights alone.
Why is this important to know? Well, if Mayweather Jr. fights Canelo in May, he is taking the biggest risk of the two, jeopardizing a GIANT pay day in September which he has had for the last couple of years. We already know he has said that he plans to fight twice next year and in these particular months. If he looses against Canelo, he can kiss a September payday good bye. So, if we know how Mayweather Jr. and Al Haymon work, they will make the choice that ensures them the most money.
Mayweather Jr. will fight Guerrero in May.
On the flipside, It has been said by De La Hoya, that he thinks Canelo should wait another year or two to fight Mayweather Jr. If you read between the lines, he is saying this because:
And he is RIGHT to think that. So, maybe the Canelo fight with Mayweather Jr. may not even happen next year because of those very reasons. Golden Boy will make more money in the long run putting together Co-Main Event Shows with Mayweather Jr. and Canelo rather than Mayweather Jr. vs. Canelo; at least for now.
