THE FIGHT IS ON FOR MAY 6, 2016.  CINCO DE MAYO WEEKEND… MEXICO VS MEXICO!!!

 

SAUL “CANELO” ALVAREZ VS. JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ, JR.

 

MORE TO COME!

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has called on WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto to sign the contract and face him in the ring on May 2. In a letter sent to members of the media, Canelo implored Cotto to sign the contract for their proposed fight:

CANELO ALVAREZ:

“I don’t understand what is happening. I already granted Miguel Cotto a lot of what they were asking to make this fight happen. It’s been more than a month and he has not decided to sign the contract.”

“I am young and obviously don’t remember many fights of the past, but I understand that no Puerto Rican has ever ducked a Mexican, or a Mexican a Puerto Rican. This is a classic fight and what the fans want to see.”

“I already talked to my promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, and he confirmed to me that I will fight on May 2, 2015 and Miguel Cotto is the opponent that tops the list. Thank God I have several options, but I believe and I think the fans of the world, especially in Puerto Rico, want me to face someone as big as he [Cotto].”

“Cotto has to decide already, but do not waste any more time. If not, he will go down in history as one who ducked a fighter who defeated his own brother because you are sure he can beat you too. I leave the task to him because I already did mine. I hope his decision does not hurt the sport of boxing in his country and the fans who demand this fight.”
