De La Hoya: Canelo Wants Floyd Mayweather Jr. Next

By Ryan Burton

Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas-  Golden Boy President Oscar De La Hoya addressed the press shortly after Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's unanimous decision victory over Austin Trout. The former 6 division champion was asked what he thought about a possible unification fight between Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs), who holds the WBC and WBA junior middleweight titles and IBF champion Ishe Smith. De La Hoya said that fight is certainly possible down the road but that all of their focus is on a showdown against Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs). 

"Canelo wants all the titles. He wants to unify the titles. Ishe Smith just won a championship and he is in a hot division. There is no reason why he can't be in the mix for these fights but Canelo's focus right now is to make the biggest fights out there and that is Floyd Mayweather," De La Hoya stated.
