Canelo vs. Trout Showdown Reportedly Looms For 5/4

By Miguel Rivera

According to multiple sources in Mexico, WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs) will likely face WBA "regular" beltholder Austin Trout (26-0, 14KOs) in a unification on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Canelo was originally looking to face Puerto Rican star Miguel Cotto on the date, but Cotto lost a twelve round unanimous decision to Trout on December 1st in New York.

Even though he clearly has the much bigger name, Cotto became a less attractive option after suffering two consecutive defeats. While most experts believe Canelo is hunting for another possible opponent, the unbeaten fighter gave the green light on Trout a long time ago. Canelo had his eye on Trout since February 2011, when he sat ringside in Guadalajara and watched Trout dominate his older brother Rigoberto Alvarez.

The May 4th card, on HBO pay-per-view, is headlined by Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a defense of his WBC welterweight crown, reportedly against mandatory challenger Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero.
