Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, believes Mexican superstar Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez is considering a full run in the light heavyweight division.

Canelo is current the undisputed world champion at super middleweight - a title he claimed back in November after knocking out Caleb Plant.

Canelo has captured world titles at junior middleweight, middleweight, super middleweight and light heavyweight.

He moved up to 175-pounds in 2019 and captured the WBO title with a knockout of Sergey Kovalev. Afterwards, he vacated that title and moved down to 168.

During 2021, Canelo saw action three times - with bruising stoppage wins over Avni Yildirim, unbeaten Billy Joe Saunders, and then Plant.

Because he stepped in the ring four times within a twelve month period, Canelo is planning to give body some neccessary months of rest.

He plans to make his return to the ring in May - on Cinco De Mayo weekend. And then he will certainly fight again in September, as part of Mexican Independence Day weekend.

At the recent World Boxing Council convention in Mexico, Canelo's handlers requested permission to pursue a fifth divisional title - by facing WBC cruiserweight champion Ilunga Makabu.

There are now rumblings that Canelo may instead pursue another world title fight at 175.

Canelo's handlers have spoken with Arum and it appears he is more inclined to face WBO champion Joe Smith first - and then IBF, WBC champion Artur Beterbiev. Arum's company has a promotional stake in both champions.

"There haven't been any real conversations [for Canelo vs Artur Beterbiev]," Arum told IFL TV. "I think they might wanna fight Joe Smith Jr. next and then go to Beterbiev to unify the titles. They sort of hinted at that."

Beterbiev retained his titles earlier this month with a knockout of Marcus Browne. And Smith will return next month, in a title defense clash with Callum Johnson.
