Canelo Promotional Legal Battle is Getting Close To a Trial

By Miguel Rivera

According to sources in Mexico, the legal battle over WBC junior middleweight champion Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez is likely heading to trial in at the Dade Country courthouse in Miami, Florida. The case is in the final stage of discovery and the next step would be the announcement of a trial date. In 2009, promoter Felix "Tutico" Zabala of All Star Boxing sued Golden Boy Promotions for allegedly interfering with his contract. Zabala claims Canelo signed a four year promotional contract with his company in 2008, and there was a clause that extended the contract in the event Canelo became a world champion. Golden Boy has disputed the validity of Zabala's promotional claim and believe their company is the only valid promoter of the Mexican superstar.

Canelo's next return is targeted for May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
