Canelo Will Sit Until May: Eyes Mayweather, Big Names

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

Undefeated Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs), the WBC junior middleweight champion, has made it clear that he won't return to the ring until May 2013 - and he hopes to face former three division champion Miguel Cotto, WBA junior middleweight champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. and WBC middleweight king Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez.

"I want to face one of them in May, a month for Mexicans," Canelo said.

In telephone conversation from his home in Los Angeles, Canelo stated that he recently held a meeting with promoter Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions. Canelo, along with his coaches Chepo and Eddy Reynoso, explained their expectations for the May 4th return.

"We basically put on the table that we want to fight against any other champion at 154 pounds - or Cotto, Mayweather and Martinez. We told Golden Boy that we wanted to fight on May 5 [May 4th in 2013] and again on September 15 [September 14 in 2013] - the important dates for Mexicans," Canelo said.

"I will not fight until May and I want one of those opponents or any champion at 154-pound champion. [Martinez] can come down [in weight] or we can agree on 156 pounds. He is a fighter who is not a true middleweight. [Until then I'll] be training and I'll be waiting until that date arrives. In addition - I've worked hard, I've been very active and there is a need to rest your body and relax in order to return even better."
