Mexican Superstar, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has announced via his personal twitter account that he will return on March 8th, as well as July 26th, and November 22nd. Stating that; “After my meeting with GBP these are the dates that will fight in 2014: March 8, 26 in July and 22 November …”
He has also given orders to Goldenboy’s Richard Schaeffer, to secure him Miguel Cotto, and Sergio Martinez; both of whom he wants to face next year. Canelo has advised that all three reported bouts will be carried by Showtime PPV. It remains to be seen if they will be able to secure enough high profile opponents to make all three fights happen.
Victor Ortiz will be a likely opponent as he returns on December 14th against Alfonso Gomez, in a junior welterweight bout. Also, the winner of the December 7th bout between Austin “No Doubt” Trout and Erislandy Lara will be a logical opponent should Cotto, or Martinez not be available.
