Floyd Mayweather recently commented on former opponent Canelo Alvarez, suggesting that at 33 years old, Canelo's performance is on the decline as he prepares for a match against Jermell Charlo on September 30.

Mayweather, who retired in 2017, noted that Canelo is not as formidable as he once was, which is three years before Mayweather's age when he defeated the Mexican star.

Their clash took place in 2013 when Mayweather was 36, and despite an unusual scorecard from CJ Ross, Mayweather's defensive skills prevailed.

Mayweather went on to emphasize that he believes Canelo's career peak has passed and that he is now regressing, citing his losses to Gennadiy Golovkin and Dmitry Bivol.

Mayweather conveyed these thoughts through FightHype.com, acknowledging Canelo's prior achievements while also pointing out the noticeable decline in his recent performances.

Canelo was just 23 years old when he faced Mayweather in 2013, with a promising career ahead. Although he gained valuable experience from that defeat, he maintained an unblemished record for the following nine years until his loss to Dmitry Bivol.

While Canelo's next opponent is Jermell Charlo, fans are also interested in a potential matchup against David Benavidez, the WBC mandatory challenger. If Canelo succeeds against the Charlo brothers, he may face Benavidez or risk losing his WBC title as per the organization's order.
