Photos: Alvarez is Getting Ready For Anthony Mundine

By Miguel Rivera

In three weeks, Rigoberto "Espanol" Alvarez will get the opportunity to once again becoming a world champion in the junior middleweight division, where his younger brother Saul "El Canelo" Alvarez is the WBC champion. Alvarez will travel many miles to face Anthony Mundine for the WBA interim title on the 19th of October in Newcastle, Australia.

The pride of Jalisco, 33, is training under the supervision of José "Chepe" Reynoso.

"I will be launching a lot of punches in every direction, and that's going to give me the win," Alvarez said.

Seven months ago, Alvarez lost the title to Austin Trout, and now it's time to recover. Mundine, 36, held the WBA super middleweight title in 2008. Rigoberto Alvarez (27-3, 20 KOs) vs. Anthony Mundine (42-4, 25 KOs) will determine the mandatory challenger to Trout.
