Frank Warren, who promotes top rated super middleweight Zach Parker, would love to lure Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez to the UK for a big stadium fight.

Parker is the WBO's top rated contender. He returns to the ring on Saturday night and faces Sherzod Khusanov at the Royal Albert Hall in Kensington.

Parker (20-0, 14 KOs) continues to sharpen his skills and has stopped his last three opponents.

Canelo, who holds the WBO, WBC, WBO super middleweight titles, is expected to return in September - and the frontrunner to face him is IBF world champion Caleb Plant.

Should Canelo unify the weight class, and remains at 168, he will certainly have to deal with a few mandatory defenses - with an order eventually being issued by the WBO to make a mandatory defense against Parker.

Warren could even see the WBO handing down that order in the aftermath of Canelo's next fight.

"Maybe after Canelo's September fight [the WBO will order him to face Parker]," Warren told Sky Sports.

"Of course [I would like to stage it in the UK].  Zach has always talked about his dream of fighting at Pride Park. Maybe Canelo will be in the opposite corner. Pride Park or the Emirates, or even the moon! We just want him to get his deserved shot as soon as possible."

Canelo has a solid record of defeating UK talent.

In his last fight, back in May, he stopped Billy Joe Saunders after breaking his orbital bone. In 2020, he dominated Callum Smith over twelve rounds. Besides those two, Canelo knocked out Amir Khan, Liam Smith , Ryan Rhodes and Rocky Fielding. He also decisioned Matthew Hatton.
