Golden Boy Promotions have said they are close to naming the
next fight to face Mexican star and reigning WBC light-middleweight
champion Saul Alvarez.
The flame-haired puncher has seen several bouts fall through of
late but is committed to still putting his title on the line at the
MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 15.
Amongst the potential opponents are Josesito Lopez, Erislandy
Lara, Ricardo Mayorga and James Kirkland.
In the lead appears to be Lopez after his recent defeat of
Josesito has called for the shot despite the fact that he is
barely a welterweight never mind a light-middleweight.
