Canelo's Foe Lands Next Week, Alvarez Faces Figueroa

By Miguel Rivera

Manager José "Chepo" Reynoso has revealed that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's opponent will most likely be announced next week. Canelo (42-1-1, 30KOs) returns on March 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The two frontrunners are Alfredo Angulo (22-3, 18KOs) and IBF junior middleweight champion Carlos Molina (22-5-2, 6KOs).

"The [most likely opponent] is either Carlos Molina or Perro Angulo, depending on the negotiations. I think that both are good opponents and have prestige and quality. Which of them [will face Canelo] is depending on the negotiations that Golden Boy is having with them," Chepo said.

Also the trainer/manager stated that Canelo's older brother, Ricardo Alvarez (23-2-3, 14KOs), will face WBC interim-lightweight champion Omar Figueroa (22-0-1, 17KOs) on the undercard. With Adrien Broner moving up to 147, there wouldn't be any surprise if the vacant WBC title was up for grabs in the contest.

SMH at Canelo. Hope he doens't become a one hit pony for his Mayweather mega fight.
