Sources close to the negotiations have advised BoxingScene.com that a deal is practically finalized for a junior middleweight clash between WBC champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (38-0-1, 28KOs) and former champion Kermit Cintron (33-4-1, 28KOs). A few minor issues remain but a finalized deal is expected within 24-hours. The fight is being positioned for November 26th, Thanksgiving weekend, likely in a bull ring in Guadalajara, Mexico. Top Rank recently released Cintron from his promotional agreement, but his manager, Josh Dubin, has certainly ensured that his fighter lands on his feet in quick fashion.
