Team Canelo Tell Golden Boy They Want Mayweather Next

By Miguel Rivera

WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) wants to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Canelo's co-manager and trainer, Chepo Reynoso, was ringside last Saturday at the MGM in Las Vegas, watching Mayweather win a twelve round unanimous decision over Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero.

Mayweather's match with Guerrero took place at the welterweight limit. Canelo and his trainers are very firm on their position of facing Mayweather at the junior middleweight limit of 154-pounds. They will not entertain the possibility of a catch-weight. Team Canelo have told their promoter, Golden Boy Promotions, that Mayweather is their top priority.

Reynoso says Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer, and Golden President Oscar De La Hoya, will be speaking with Mayweather's handlers Al Haymon and Leonard Ellerbe in the coming days. Both Mayweather and Canelo are looking to return on same date of September 14th.

Canelo and his team are hoping to get the name of their next opponent, Mayweather or ortherwise, in the next few weeks.
