JUDGE CJ Ross is perhaps the only person on the planet who might have deemed Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez worthy of a rematch with Floyd Mayweather in the five years that have passed since their 2013 fight.

But Alvarez, as green as Mayweather was great that night, has officially avoided defeat since then (despite a couple of questionable results against Gennady Golovkin), and has certainly matured and improved in the intervening years.

Now, as the reigning world middleweight champion, it’s less of a stretch to imagine the Mexican not only luring Mayweather back into the ring – ‘Money’ loves money, after all – but perhaps doing better second time around than he did when aimlessly chasing the American for 12 rounds all those years ago.
