Saul Alvarez vs Matthew Hatton Bout on December 4?

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Multiple sources in Mexico are reporting that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's handlers will make another run to secure welterweight contender Matthew Hatton as an opponent. Alvarez has a date set aside for his next fight, December 4, and Cancun, Mexico has been mentioned as a possible location for the contest.

Golden Boy Promotions tried to make Alvarez-Hatton earlier this year as a co-feature contest for the Floyd Mayweather-Shane Mosley pay-per-view in May. They were unable to reach a deal.

Alvarez has extended his promotional agreement with Golden Boy. Details have not been revealed by Golden Boy, but sources in Mexico report the new deal is a three-year and/or ten fight deal, with a 30% monetary increase from the contract he signed earlier this year, and there are numerous incentives based on performance.

Matt hatton is one of the worst ever to put on a pair of gloves. Simply a disgrace and should not be fighting more than a 4 rounder. No talent no style no business being a boxer period. Just another…

mathew may not be a devastating puncher but he is not washed up and is a ok fighter better than josecotto and current tata so i dont think this fight will hapend cuz alvares's glass chin will get exposed again

The dude is 20 years old. Facing off against a European champion is perfect for him at this stage.
