Lets not forget that saul alvarez faught shane mosley although old it was a test!!!
and since he passed they have been trying to match him with a worthy opponent!!! like paul williams, james kirkland pulled out of a fight with saul over a hurt shoulder, they tried to match him with victor ortiz say what you want about victor he is still a threat!!
saul only 21yrs old at the time these matches were being set up!!
so they are obviosley trying to match him up!! they know saul is ready, and they are not waiting anymore!!!
saul is not going to be padded like jr. and it seems like no one really wants to fight canelo right now!!!
