By Dan Ambrose: Oscar de La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions is dropping a pretty big hint that he thinks he can set up a huge mega fight between his fighter WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (41-0-1, 30 KO’s) and unbeaten WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26 KO’s) on either May 4th or September 14th.
Mayweather Jr. scheduled himself to fight on both of those days, and then Golden Boy did the same with Alvarez, no doubt hoping they can somehow convince Mayweather Jr. to fight their guy Canelo. I don’t know if they’ll succeed but it looks Golden Boy are trying their hardest to make that happen. I can’t think of a more undeserving fighter to get a Mayweather fight than Canelo Alvarez. The guy hasn’t fought Austin Trout or anyone else of quality, he’s fight welterweight despite being the junior middleweight champion, and yet he wants Mayweather.
