By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

Eddy Reynoso, the manager of WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs), is planning to speak with Golden Boy Promotions in the next few days, hoping to finalize the details of the Mexican star's next fight.

Canelo returned to action this past Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, demolishing Josesito Lopez in five rounds for a TKO victory. Over 14,000 fans packed the venue to support Canelo.

According to Reynoso, the most viable opponent for Canelo's next fight is top contender James Kirkland - and he also reveals there are tentative plans for a December return, possibly in San Antonio, Texas. There are some issues with this match. Kirkland recently filed a lawsuit to break his promotional agreement with Golden Boy. The legal issues would have to be resolved to make this fight possible.

After the year is over, Reynonso will focus his attention on May 4, 2013 - a date being set aside for a huge fight involving Canelo. Reynoso says the "Cinco De Mayo" return will come against Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto, if he defeats WBA champion Austin Trout in December, or a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Floyd's only meaningful option right now is Canelo. Khan is off the list. Who else is there in the GBP roster? If he fights Guerrero, they'll say he's ducking Canelo. Who else that is not a TR fighter? Berto? Haha... These guys have one thing in common: vacation. Fight cancellation puts a smil...

[QUOTE=Grimgash]Honestly can we stop talking about Lara? You guys are sort of absurd with that comment... Lara may be a great fighter but the thing is he doesn't have the word "prize" in front of that. He doesn't bring much money to the table and fighting easier well known opponents is how its go...

[QUOTE=Dyabolic]You should go back and find the quote where I said I had a problem with Canelo facing Kirkland. Only thing I said was they approached Kirkland when he was clearly injured. And there won't be any fight with Kirkland cause Kirkland is not only having problems with GBP but his own te...
