Promoter Eddie Hearn, who currently works with undisputed super middleweight champion Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, has a very good idea who he'd like to see the Mexican superstar face in the coming future.

Canelo is scheduled to collide with his career rival, Gennadiy Golovkin, in a trilogy fight on September 17th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Should Canelo prevail, Hearn would like to see him face WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol in a rematch. Back in May, Bivol secured a career-defining win when he outboxed Canelo over twelve rounds to bank a dominant unanimous decision.

And then, should Canelo continue his fight by fight pact with Hearn, the British promoter views two-time super middleweight champion David Benavidez as a big fight for the future.

Before that fight can happen, Hearn would like to see Benavidez beat a top-tier opponent like Caleb Plant.

“[For Canelo's next three fights,] Gennadiy Golovkin, Dmitry Bivol, and I think Benavidez is a big fight, in time,” said Hearn to The DAZN Boxing Show.

When Canelo signed a two-fight agreement with Hearn, he was also presented with a very lucrative deal from Premier Boxing Champions - which included fights with Benavidez and undefeated middleweight champion Jermell Charlo.

Canelo decided to go in the direction of fighting Bivol and Golovkin.

“When people talk about how Canelo should fight Benavidez and Charlo, which would be voluntary defenses of his 168-pound titles, it doesn’t stoke anything in Canelo. When we talk about Bivol, Canelo likes the idea of going up to 175-pounds and challenging someone," Hearn said.

"Maybe Canelo shouldn't have. Maybe he should have just boxed Charlo. But we have to respect the guy because it’s like he wants to handicap himself.”
