Canelo Alvarez: Set The Date Of May 4 2013 For His Next Fight!

Mexico’s Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has asked Golden Boy Promotions for a fight with Argentine boxer Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez. Canelo, the WBC’s champion at junior middleweight, set the date of May 4 for his next fight. Martinez has the WBC’s title at 160-pounds, but doesn’t have a problem with moving down in weight.

There are three fighters on Canelo’s list, with the two others being Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather Jr. Canelo says that he asked Golden Boy’s President, Oscar De La Hoya, to speak with Lou DiBella, the promoter of Martinez.

“We had a meeting with people of Golden Boy Promotions and we agreed that our next fight is on May 4. The first option is Maravilla Martinez,” explained Canelo (41-0-1, 30 KOs).

The same night that Canelo destroyed Josesito Lopez, “Maravilla” (50-2-2, 28 KOs) reclaimed his title with a decision win over Canelo’s countryman Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
