Mayweather Vs Alvarez could happen soon...

Saul Alvarez
Golden Boy CEO Robert Schaefer has been ranting about Saul Alvarez being good enough to take on P4P No.1 Floyd Mayweather Jr for a very long time. But, nobody has paid that much attention to it.

In the past we all thought it was just a way of building Alavarez's reputation but we can see now that in the weight division Mayweather is now in there is no one else that we will provide him with a challenge if he beats Miguel Cotto. Most people believe now that Mayweather Vs Pacquiao will never happen so a fight with Alvarez is the next best thing. The 21-year old is young, strong and in his prime and Floyd Mayweather is in his mid 30's but he is still classed by many as the greatest fighter in the world.

Oscar De La Hoya has also admitted that a fight between Alvarez and Mayweather is definitely in Golden Boy's long term plans.

"The Alvarez-Mosely winner goes on to bigger and better things, that's a given... They can go on to face the winner of Ortiz-Berto or Mayweather-Cotto," said Golden Boy's main promoter.

Alvarez has appeared as chief support and Mayweather's last two fights and he will do the same on May 5th when he takes on Shane Mosely on the undercard of Mayweather Vs Miguel Cotto.

A fight between these two would be very easy to make as Mayweather is the biggest selling fighter in the world and Alvarez has also started to gain a lot of fans and a lot of popularity. The fight may not happen this year as Mayweather is due to report to prison on June 1st and he has to stay there for a minimum of three months. But, as long as both of the fighters keep on winning,the anticipation will build and somewhere down the line we will see a great fight between Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Floyd 'Money' Mayweather.
