Team Canelo: We're Facing Mayweather in September

By Miguel Rivera, notifight.com

WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs) will get his wish in 2013 - a dream fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. - according to Canelo's manager Chepo Reynoso.

Canelo and Mayweather will co-headline a big evening of boxing on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Should both of the superstars win their individual fights, they will collide on September 14th at the same Las Vegas venue.

"[Vice President] Eric Gomez of Golden Boy Promotions came to Guadalajara and we agreed that Saul and Floyd would share the evening in May. We already reached a financial agreement [for May], and a guarantee that we will face [Mayweather] in September in Las Vegas," said Chepo via telephone.

"The worth of Saul was confirmed by the large attendance at the [MGM Grand], even though on that same day Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. fought 'Maravilla' Martinez a few blocks away. In addition, Canelo finished Josesito Lopez with the force that was expected. Mayweather had difficulties in defeating Puerto Rico's Miguel Cotto, who even landed some big punches. We believe that it is time for Canelo to show what is made of."

Mayweather will likely face Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero in May. Canelo's opponent is still unresolved, but Austin Trout is still rumored to be in the running.

Does this mean Austin Trout is out of the picture, since GBP doesn't want to risk the loss... or does this mean that the fight is happening, since a Mayweather fight is secured?

That's a fight I want to see. Canelo will give Floyd ALL he can handle.
