Saul Canelo Alvarez is attempting to become an undisputed super middleweight champion in just over a month and he won't want reminding of the time Floyd Mayweather outclassed him.
The Mexican has the chance to make history on November 6th against Caleb Plant, when he hopes to win the final belt at 168 lbs that he doesn't already have.
Things have already got spicy between the pair, as they brawled during their first press conference and Canelo managed to cut the American.
Plant already knew he had a mountain to climb, considering his opponent's only loss to date was against Mayweather, way back in 2013.
If he wants some tips on how to earn a surprise, then he could do a lot worse than watch the highlights from 'Money's' huge victory, which have gone viral once again.
In the eight years since, Canelo has got a lot bigger and a lot better in becoming a four weight world champion, with just one draw on his record and another 14 wins.
The 31-year-old has also claimed that he wouldn't have the one loss on his record if he, and his conqueror, were to have fought when he was at his peak.
Speaking ahead of his win over Billy Joe Saunders, the WBA (Super), WBO, WBC super middleweight champ said, "He'd [Mayweather] have nothing to do with me.
"If we were both at our prime, our best prime, he wouldn't anything do with me. Nothing.
"I'd knock him out."
It is pretty well agreed in boxing that Alvarez wasn't yet at his peak when he fought Mayweather, but it doesn't necessarily fill in the whole picture.
The Mexican had still bee in 43 fights before his loss, winning 42 and drawing one, and was in the seventh defence of his WBC light middleweight title, so hardly a novice.
At 37-years-old Mayweather wasn't quite at his peak either, it was arguably a few years before that, and was just two years short of retirement.
Certainly Canelo now would beat Mayweather now, more importantly he would be pretty much any boxer at or around his weight!
