According to Canelo Promotions, junior welterweight contender Ricardo Alvarez (23-2-3, 14KOs) will return to action on the undercard of his younger brother, former champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. Canelo is set to return on March 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Ricardo holds the WBC's Continental Americas title at 140-pounds, and his team is going to try very hard to place him in a world title fight in 2014.
Ricardo, ranked by the WBC at #13, has won his last five after dropping a split decision to Rene Gonzalez in August of 2012.
