Canelo vs K9 in The Works For September 15 Showdown?

By Ryan Burton has been advised by a source close to the situation that IBF champion Cornelius "K9" Bundrage (31-4, 18KOs) is a strong possibility to face undefeated WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (40-0-1, 29KOs) on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

However, Bundrage has to take care of business on Saturday night when he defends his belt against his mandatory challenger, Cory Spinks. If a deal is indeed announced, Bundrage would become the fourth opponent named to face Alvarez.  It is likely that Golden Boy Promotions will wait until after Bundrage-Spinks 2, which Showtime is televising, before formally announcing a potential deal.

Showtime pay-per-view is still scheduled to carry Canelo's return, although there has been talk of Golden Boy hoping to place Canelo's fight on CBS.
