Canelo: Mayweather Jr. Looking To Fight in February
By Rene Umanzor
According to WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, there is a scheduling conflict which might prevent a potential fight with WBA super champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. Canelo wants to return to action on May 4th, as part of Cinco De Mayo weekend.
Canelo asked his promoter, Golden Boy Promotions to secure Mayweather for his next fight. Canelo says Mayweather wants to return on a date in February, which is far too early for the Mexican star.
Canelo is hoping Mayweather will agree to a May date.
"Currently we are negotiating [to get a fight] with Floyd Mayweather. And if for one reason or another Floyd does not want [to fight], we'll opt for another option. The problem with Mayweather is that he wants to make a fight in February and then [wait] until September [to fight again] and I want to fight in May. Hopefully he will want to fight in May, and we'll [come into the fight with] almost the same amount of time of inactivity," Canelo said.
