Canelo Questions Mayweather For Breaking Fight Promise

By Miguel Rivera

WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs) questions the true intentions of Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs), after the two boxers had a fallout over a verbal agreement related to a potential fall fight.

According to Canelo, the two of them reached a verbal agreement on terms and Mayweather was going to sign a contract to fight Canelo in September. In exchange for his signature, Canelo would appear in the co-feature position to Mayweather's fight with Robert Guerrero on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Once the card was officially announced, Canelo says Mayweather refused to sign his end of the deal. The Mexican superstar alleges that Mayweather was trying his use his name to boost the pay-per-view numbers, and tickets sales, on Cinco De Mayo weekend.

Canelo withdrew from the show and reached a deal to face WBA champion Austin Trout (26-0, 14KOs) on April 20th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

"I said this beforehand, that if Mayweather did not sign [the contract] I would not be fighting on his event. He said he would sign and then it dragged on and later on he refused, and that's why we moved to a new date. I do not need him and I proved it. Now we are very satisfied, we're going to fight with a good opponent and we are going to have a great fight, a great event and that's what counts right now," Canelo said.

[QUOTE=budfr;13112472]Hey *****, Canelo has more fights, so?? Canelo didn´t have an amateur background nor went to the Olympics like Floyd. Also, Canelo is on PPV. And the reason why Floyd sales PPVs is because they have marketed his image as…
