Canelo, if He Wins, Would Eye Cotto-Martinez Winner

by Salvador Rodriguez

Former WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs) has a lot riding this Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Canelo will face dangerous Alfredo Angulo in the main event of a Showtime Pay-Per-View card.

If Canelo wins, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer would like to match him against the winner of the June 7th fight between Miguel Cotto and WBC middleweight champion Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez.

Cotto was going to face Canelo last April, but the fight got derailed when Austin Trout upset Cotto in December 2012. Canelo fought Trout instead and win a close twelve round decision.

The fight was against proposed for this Saturday, but Cotto passed on a $10 million dollar offer to face Martinez.

"I think if Canelo beats Angulo, then we could be talking about a possible fight against Miguel Cotto or Sergio Martinez. We can not rule out Martinez [winning the fight], but if Cotto wins we will try to make that fight, a great pay-per-view between two of the best junior middleweights. We have to wait and see what happens," Schaefer said.

Cotta was afraid of canelo. He lost to Trout and Canelo beat and drpped Trout. He preferred less money to fight Martinez because he thinks Martinez is still a bit injured from the one round beating he got from chavez.…
