Anthony Mundine-Rigoberto Alvarez, WBA Title on 9/7

By Miguel Rivera

BoxingScene.com has been advised that a deal was reached for a fight between junior middleweights Rigoberto "Espanol" Alvarez of Mexico and Australia's Anthony "The Man" Mundine, for the interim-super welterweight title of the World Boxing Association (WBA). The fight is going to happen on the 7th of September in Australia.

Alvarez (27-3, 20 KOs) had previously won the title by beating Nobuhiro Ishida (October 2010) and lost the belt in his first defense against Austin Trout (February 2011). Mundine (42-4, 25 KOs), a two division champion with the WBA title at 168 and IBO title at 160, will try to claim his third divisional crown.

Alvarez, 33 and the older brother of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, has been training hard in the capital of Jalisco.

"Although this is a tough fight, hopefully I'll regain the title. This new opportunity motivates me to continue in boxing. Last time I disappointed my fans, but I promise that in my next fight I will jump off the bench to throw more punches and continue my attack and always come forward in search of victory," Alvarez said.

What are you talking about? He wasn't being unreasonable in the negotiations, he was going to head to Mundine's homeland and wanted proper compensation for it. He agreed to practically all of Mundine's demands and the fight still got turned…
