There are rumors in the boxing community that Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will fight on September 17th against Ricardo Mayorga. Nothing has been finalized but the rumors have been going since Canelo beat Matthew Hatton. At first, I thought that Canelo would fight Vanes Martirosyan on the undercard of the Mayweather vs Ortiz. To me it make sense because having Canelo on the undercard would boost up the pay per view buys. Canelo has dismissed those rumors and has mentioned that he will headline his own fight possibly at the Staples Center or Mexico. There are talks that the Canelo fight will still be on pay per view to go along the mayweather vs ortiz fight. A fight with Ricardo Mayorga will be good for Canelo but for now its just a rumor. If it gets confirmed, I’m looking forward to seeing how Mayorga will sell the fight. What kind of names will he call Canelo? Will he get under Canelo’s skin? We would have to see.
