Saul Alvarez-Victor Ortiz Finalized, 9/15 on Showtime PPV
By Rick Reeno and Jake Donovan
The new main event for "Knockout Kings" has been officially finalized, and the fight is of no surprise to BoxingScene.com readers - WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (40-0-1, 29KOs) will defend his title against former welterweight king Victor Ortiz (29-3-2, 22KOs) on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Before he takes his shot against Canelo, Ortiz returns on June 23rd against Josesito Lopez in a Showtime televised main event at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
In a surprise move, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer has revealed that Canelo-Ortiz will be carried and heavily marketed by Showtime pay-per-view. Should Ortiz win - or even fight to a draw - next weekend, the September 15 fight will take place at 154 lb. with Alvarez' alphabet title at stake.
