Mexican star and former WBC and WBA Super Welterweight World Champion, Canelo Alvarez will face Cuban Erislandy Lara on July 12. Lara is considered by many one of the best 154 pounders and this is one of the fights the boxing fans have been asking to see.

It is rumored that Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will face Manny Pacquiao after facing Erislandy Lara. Manny is still a “Big-Name” in Boxing and is more than capable of producing the Big $ Fights. If Manny fights Canelo at the same catch-weight that Floyd did, I predict Manny winning by TKO but opposite at +154 lbs. Canelo could also easily fight at a MW-catch-weight at 158 lbs vs the winner between Cotto and Martinez. Canelo is becoming a true legend that keeps bringing action to the fans. Floyd vs Manny is still the # 1 fight that the entire world wants to see but I can see a rematch between Floyd and Canelo before we see Manny vs The $ Team.

I heard that a certain Mexican businessman was ready to offer Pacquiao excess of $60m to fight Canelo in Mexico a year ago at 154. It never came to fruition but it sure was interesting.

I'm happy with the path Canelo and his team are taking right now. It was clear that after their first defeat, they needed a massive year to make up for it and keep their talisman firmly amongst the elite in the eyes of the fans and fighters. After demolishing Angulo, he's gone straight for the Cuban Lara. I hope for the sake of Canelo Mania that we see a Canelo victory.

Canelo seems a little hot headed taking this fight but who am I to complain? This is exactly what I wanted to see and I don't think I'm the only one.
