His career moves forward on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, when he defense his WBA junio rmiddleweight title title against former three division champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley (46-7-1, 39KOs).

Marco Barrera, Erik Morales and Julio Cesar Chavez are just some of the Mexican fighters I know that our community admires. I have the intention to be among these men," said Alvarez.
