|WBC world champ Saul Alvarez.|
The fight will be real easy for Golden Boy to make if they do chose Kirkland as the opponent. Both men are promoted by GB Promotions and both will jump at the chance of this fight as both feel they have something to prove.
Kirkland's last outing was against Carlos Molina. The referee made a very controversial decision to disqualify Molina because his corner man 'apparently' jumped into the ring whilst he was giving a count. Alvarez's last fight came on May 5th on the Mayweather-Cotto undercard. He was against 40-year old ring legend Shane Mosley. Alvarez dominated throughout most of the fight and was awarded the win by a unanimous decision.
If the fight does happen, it will definitely be one to watch. Both fighters are young, fresh and hungry. Whoever wins will have their career boosted massively but the loser could see their career ruined.
