Canelo's Manager: Lara on The Short List of Opponents

By Salvador Rodriguez

With Alfredo Angulo set aside and IBF champion Carlos Molina facing serious legal troubles, former WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez is facing a severe drought of possibilities for his next appearance, which tentative for a date of July 26th. WBA 'regular' champion Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12KOs), who defends his title against Ishe Smith on May 2, is emerging as the strongest candidate.

After Canelo stopped Angulo last Saturday in Las Vegas, he was confronted by Lara at the post-fight press conference. Lara openly challenged him before the press. 

"[Lara] is an option too. What he did [by challenging Canelo] is not a big problem. He did his job, because he knows that he can generate a lot of money by facing Canelo," Reynoso said.

"In general, super welterweight is difficult [to find good opponents]. We are not yet ready to move up to middleweight. Canelo does well at 154 or 155 pounds, but perhaps we'll look for people who want to fight at an agreed weight. We know that Saul is ready to fight with the best in the world and we have to continue working. Sometimes there aren't a lot of opponents, but sometimes there are many."

Reynoso plans to meet with Golden Boy in two to three weeks to discuss possible options for July.
