Saul Alvarez: I am Focused on Mayweather For May 5th

By Salvador Rodriguez

As BoxingScene.com had reported a few days ago, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (39-0-1, 29KOs) began training for a planned ring return on May 5th. Also returning on May 5th, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, is Floyd Mayweather Jr. (42-0, 26KOs). Canelo has not disclosed if he's fighting Mayweather, or if the two boxers are going to co-headine another HBO pay-per-view - as they did last September.

But, Canelo does not hide his feelings. He wants to fight Mayweather on May 5th. The Mexican superstar, also the WBC champion at 154-pounds, is willing to face Mayweather at a catch-weight of 150-pounds. Mayweather is the WBC's champion at 147.

"Right now my mind is focused on a possible fight with Mayweather. It would be a dream fulfilled," Canelo said.

Mayweather is trying to secure Manny Pacquiao for the May date, but the two sides appear to be far apart on several key points - including the date. Canelo, however, is ready to go.
