Canelo - Schaefer Likes Angulo, Reynoso Eyes Molina

By Salvador Rodriguez

While Golden Boy Promotions is waiting for an answer from former three division world champion Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31KOs), plans are already being made for a backup opponent for Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's return on March 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer feels a fight between Canelo (42-1-1, 30KOs) and Alfredo Angulo (22-3, 18KOs) would be an action-packed fight due to the styles.

"If it won't be [Cotto], there is Sergey Rabchenko, Erisandy Lara, Carlos Molina and Alfredo Angulo waiting. From the point of view of a promoter, I can say that I would prefer to see Alfredo Angulo more than others from the point of view of his style. I think that Angulo would be a great fight, people do not like to see chess matches," Schaefer said.

However, Canelo's manager/trainer Eddy Reynoso does not view Angulo as the best option, because the boxer is coming off a TKO defeat to Erislandy Lara. He says Molina, who hold the IBF junior middleweight championship, is the best option.

"We want to go forward and Angulo is coming off a knockout loss. Lara is a better option, but the ideal oponent is the champion Molina. He has all of the merits and people saw him on pay-per-view in September, and that is something that we would be looking for," Reynoso said.

The businessman wants Angulo, the boxingman wants Molina. If Angulo comes with the same intensity he did against Lara , Canelo would have a very difficult time even if he wins he'd take some punishment. Molina is soft fisted doesn't…

Most likely it will be Molina. If its between Molina or Angulo I would go with Angulo but Molina has the belt.

Molina is very underrated, has a great chance of pulling off the upset.

They don't even mention Kirkland. They'll eventually have to fight Lara and Kirkland.
