Mexican light-middleweight superstar Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (41-0, 30 KO's) has announced that he will refuse to fight on theMay 4th undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas if Floyd Mayweather doesn't sign an agreement that guarantees a fight between them in September. The 21-year old looked set to defend his WBC title against Austin Trout in a super-fight that would be chief support for Mayweather's fight with Guerrero.
Team Canelo have given Mayweather a deadline of Thursday to sign the agreement for September. If not Canelo will fight on April 20th in Mexico or May 11th in the US, with the opponent most likely not being Trout.
"We are going to arrive to Los Angeles this Thursday," Canelo told Notifight.com. "If on that day Floyd does not sign our agreement for September we are not going to fight on the evening of May 4th, and then we will determine if we'll fight on April 20th or the week that follows the May 4th date."
"I don't know why we're being put in this position. Two years ago they wanted to make this the fight but I was not ready. Today we want the fight and they are not agreeing. I do not understand. All I want is a big opponent, because 2013 will be my year. We want to continue with our plan to have the big fights that the public want," he added.
The Mexican's manager/trainer added: "Let it be clear that it is Mayweather who does not want the fight."
