Oscar De La Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions, has confirmed the particpation of WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (39-0-1, 29KOs) for the Floyd Mayweather-Miguel Cotto undercard on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

As had reported several weeks ago, Canelo's return was scheduled for May 5th, but it wasn't clear whether he was fighting on the undercard or in the main event. After Mayweather announced his move in weight to challenge Cotto for the WBA title, De La Hoya revealed Alvarez's participation on the undercard.

Although it's still not clear if Alvarez will actually fight at the MGM or an alternate venue with a split-feed being produced for the pay-per-view. For Mayweather's last fight against Victor Ortiz, at the MGM Grand in September, Alvarez's pay-per-view co-feature took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

I hope Alvarez fights mosley and stops him in 6, just to show what Mayweather and Pacquaio couldn't do. Then he can fight ChaVEZ and kick his ass, then onto topple Mayweather. Red Power

[QUOTE=Thickback]Canelo has had enough cookies fed to him. I'm sick and tired of these so-called "champions" that are still being "developed". If you have a belt, fight the best in your division. No split sites either! That is annoying![/QUOTE] He called both Mayweather and Cotto but they b...

[QUOTE=urrah]Canelo isn't ready for Kirkland. imo Canelo is entitled to one more gimme on May 5, then he needs to fight someone big name low risk such as Williams, Mosley, Margarito or Mayorga, someone who can introduce Alvarez to the casual fans. Winning these two fights he's ready for a step...
