Team Canelo Confirm Clottey is The Frontrunner

By Salvador Rodriguez

Edison Reynoso, manager of Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (44-1-1, 31KOs), confirms that former champion Joshua Clottey (38-4, 22KOs) is the current frontrunner for his boxer's next fight, which may take place on December 6th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. BoxingScene.com had a reported late Saturday that Clottey was the leading candidate to secure the fight.

Reynoso says there could be a conflict with the date, so nothing is set in stone and it could move to another location and a date in late November. Clottey is coming off a dominating decision victory over former champion Anthony Mundine.

"I think that this week we will practically define everything...the opponent, the venue, the date and the television network. There have been some things going forward. The most viable thing right now is Clottey for December 6th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas," Reynoso said.

"But it seems the venue might be occupied [on that date] we're going to see if the fight is going to another location in Texas or the date will change to the end of November. This is basically what is stopping us [from finalizing things]."

"Right now nothing is definite, but things have been moving along."
