Canelo To Face Either Trout or Kirkland on September 15?

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

According to Chepo Reynoso, manager of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (40-0-1, 29KOs), two potential opponents for his boxer's next fight are Austin Trout and James Kirkland. Canelo is scheduled to return on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Last week a deal was reached for Canelo to face highly regarded Paul "The Punisher" Williams (41-2, 27KOs). However, as BoxingScene.com fully reported, Williams was involved in a tragic motorcyle accident on Sunday, and the boxer suffered injuries that left him paralyzed from the waist down. The doctors do not expect Williams to walk again.

Kirkland (31-1, 27KOs) was the prefered opponent for Canelo, but he recently underwent a surgical procedure to correct a shoulder injury. Kirkland's legal adviser, Michael Miller, recently told BoxingScene that Kirkland would probably not be able to return to the ring until at least October - and they were looking for a tuneup fight to test out the durability of Kirkland's healed shoulder.

Trout (24-0, 14KOs), the WBA's "regular" champion at 154, would make a perfect candidate. He returns on Saturday in a Showtime televised defense against Delvin Rodriguez. And there is a revenge factor. Trout dominated Canelo's brother, Rigoberto Alvarez, in February 2011 in Guadalajara.

One fighter not in the running for the September date is WBA full champion Miguel Cotto, although Reynoso indicates that they would like to face him in November or December.

With Kirkland injured, looks like we know who next. So is this a ppv worthy fight?
