“Ready [to sit on the throne],” Saul Alvarez fully expects to trump Floyd Mayweather Jr on September 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"I'm ready [to sit on the throne]. I feel motivated about this challenge," said Alvarez, 22, a Mexican superstar who has been boxing professionally since the ludicrous age of 15.

"If I win, I'll be in the position that he has now and I'll have to fight with the best, face opponents who are coming up and build myself over the years as well as he did. The most important thing is to win and that's what will happen. It'll be a great night for us. People will not believe [the outcome]. We are going to have a good training camp, a good strategy to fight him and win. He is a complicated opponent, but we know how to fight him.”

A fierce redhead steamrolling toward greatness, Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KOs) most recently vacated the squared circle on April 20 after outscoring Austin Trout to unify the WBC and WBA super world light middleweight titles.

Comparatively, in an utterly brilliant showing, the 36-year-old Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) earned a unanimous decision victory over an outclassed Robert Guerrero on May 4.

Defeating Miguel Cotto to acquire the WBA (Super) & WBC Diamond light middleweight crowns in May 2012, Mayweather is one of the premier performers in the annals of prizefighting.

In a bruising clash, the reigning pound-for-pound king should ultimately outdo “Canelo” and emerge triumphant.

Although “motivated about this challenge,” the great Floyd Mayweather should outmaneuver Saul Alvarez and leave “Sin City” unblemished on Mexican Independence Day weekend.
