For his next fight, he's demanding GBP a fight with #2 ranked JMW Miguel Cotto, Ring/WBC Champion Sergio Martinez, #1 ranked/WBA/WBC Champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Previously, he had a fight with Williams, Kirkland and Ortiz fall off for one reason or another. He had Cotto and Mayweather both tell him they're on vacation and were not available for September.
Canelo is alright by me. He seems genuine in fighting the best, it's just that he doesn't have good luck on his side. 2013 will be the year we see Canelo in the big fights though.
He can't avoid the entire division and go straight to the pay day without any experience...it just violates every step...and look..he wanted to fight Kirkland who was having surgery...Williams who just got beaten by lara(why noot to fight lara instead) and ortis who is a ww( like usual taking in the smaller guy) when those fights fall apart he act like it was no more 154 pounder around soo he got to bet a natural 140 pounder...not cool..not fair..
