Former WBA/WBC light middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs) looked competitive during his bout with Erislandy Lara at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. So much that he was awarded a 12 round controversial split decision over the Cuban champion in their catch-weight fight at 155 pounds, and solidifying himself as the best fighter at Jr. Welterweight.
After dealing with what most consider his “toughest opponent”, Alvarez is already seeking his next opponent. The majority of the boxing world is clamoring for a super fight with Middleweight Champion Miguel Cotto. However, if things don’t work out they way we want them to, several options are available for the young red headed star.
