Canelo is Ready For Mayweather, Meeting With Golden Boy

By Miguel Rivera

It's been well reported that Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s jail sentence is being pushed back to June 1. The boxer was initially going to start serving a 90-day sentence for a domestic abuse charge on January 6th. Mayweather plans to move forward with a planned fight on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. There are two leading canididates, Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero and WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Mayweather is expected to announce his opponent next week. Alvarez's coach and manager, Edison Reynoso, makes it known that his boxer is ready to drop down to 150-pounds to fight Mayweather on Cinco De Mayo weekend. Alvarez and his team are scheduled to meet with Golden Boy Promotions next week to discuss a possible Mayweather fight.

"We are ready to get down to 150 pounds and make the fight. The people at Golden Boy will speak to to us next week when we travel to Los Angeles for a meeting. It is certainly a dangerous fight, but we can not miss the opportunity to face the best fighter in the world. So we'll consider the offer and if it suits us - we will take the fight," Reynoso told Sal Rodriguez.
