By Miguel Rivera

Undefeated WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez took part in a press gathering in Mexico, along with World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman, and the 22-year-old boxer demanded to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. or Miguel Cotto on May 4, 2013.

Because the final elminator between Vanes Martirosyan and Erislandy Lara ended in a technical draw, Sulaiman made it clear that Canelo would be given the opportunity to make a voluntary defense in May. Canelo will take part in the WBC's 50th annual convention, which starts on December 2 in Cancun.

"We proposed to Golden Boy Promotions that we want to fight on May 4th with Floyd Mayweather, Miguel Cotto or Sergio Martinez. [Martinez] was discarded because he announced that he plans to return in Argentina [on April 27]," said Alvarez.

"I want to beat the best. We did things pretty good [this year] and I'm happy. The time is right to fight Mayweather, three years ago we rejected a good [purse] because the time wasn't right."

Things will become clear for Canelo this Saturday, when Cotto faces WBA "regular" champion Austin Trout. If Cotto loses, then Canelo will focus all of his energy on getting Mayweather in the ring for May.

He wants to fight these fighters who are in their early or mid 30's. He's 22 years old and there are some fighters closer to his age range that want to lace up with them. Don't try to gain off of the work that Cotto and Mayweather have made for themselves. Do things the old fashion way. Do things...

if cotto can force trout to trade inside, then cotto can win this by ko. but if trout boxes on the back foot and times cotto coming in, he could hold cotto at bay long enough, bust him up and maybe even by ko. cotto tends to fade out in the final rounds
