Canelo Eyes Late March Return, Three Fights in 2014

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

Former world champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs) is looking to return to the ring on a date in late March. Last month Canelo lost a twelve round unanimous decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight was a huge financial success, with over $150 million in revenue generated and over 2.2 million pay-per-view purchases.

Canelo wants to have three fights in 2014. He had planned to have three bouts in 2013, but there wasn't enough time due to the training and promotion for the match with Mayweather.

There are two options that interest Canelo for next year - a fight against Puerto Rican star Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs) or a catch-weight bout against WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez. One thing Canelo said he won't do is have another fight at a catch-weight. The bout with Mayweather was held at 152-pounds.

"The one thing I was taught with the Mayweather fight is not to give any advantages in weight, but do [my fights] in my actual division. [Martinez] is feasible, because he stated that he has no problem to drop under the middleweight limit of 160-pounds, if necessary."

[QUOTE=.:: JSFD26 ::.;13824666]Not once did I see Lara hurt by Angulo. As a matter of fact, after the KDs he completely dominated those rounds. And in the end the one that quit was Angulo. [SIZE="1"][I]Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android[/I][/SIZE][/QUOTE]…

How about we see Canelo/Ortiz now? Might as well get it done. He won't fight Lara in his first fight back. We all know this.

Cant wait for Canelo to come back. Either of these fights would be good for him though I think Martinez would beat him. I think the cotto fight is the best option they would make some really good money

I like both fights for Canelo, him and Cotto would be crazy. I have him on top. Him and Sergio will depend on Sergio's post surgery performance. However for those tripping on Floyd fighting on Mexican holidays, have Canelo set…
