Canelo Alvarez is at a spot that I believe should deserve the full attention of the sport. No one person currently, has potentially, the most exciting next 12 months ahead of him. Canelo Alvarez is without a doubt one of the most exciting fighters in boxing right now. He can box, he can brawl, hes quicker than one would seem, and brings decent fire power. He has good enough technical skill that he can hold his own on the outside if a fight turns into strictly a boxing match. But he also has very underrated footwork, timing and range. Hes exceptional at laying out vicious combinations at medium range as he closes the gap and gets inside where his size and power really come into play. A great chin and frame leaves him able to use his power and really brawl with you in the inside. Hes all around talented and I think will exceed in the next year to the top 5 of p4p boxers. But whats really interesting is his potential matchmaking. His fight with Erislandy Lara is set for July 12th. I expect Canelo to fully dominate this fight and end it around the 8th round. His next fight, if all pieces fall together, will be Miguel Cotto on November 22nd in what would be a blockbuster fight. That as well I expect Canelo to come out the victor in a great action fight with Canelo winning by stoppage. But what would be set up for April 2015? Canelo Alvarez vs Manny Pacquiao Now heres the problem that I see arising from this. First I think that no matter whether Cotto beats or loses to Martinez, I believe Cotto ends up fighting Canelo in November and adds another classic into the Mexico-Puerto Rico rivalry. But what Pacquiao plans on doing at the end of the year is what troubles me. Does Pacquiao vs Marquez V happen? If so does Pac-man win? Does he lose? If he loses is it all over for him? What about Roach? I think Roach pushes for this fight if Cotto gets beaten by Canelo. I think Roach would love to have a crack at Canelo and collect some first hand experience facing him before throwing his #1 prized fighter at him, in what would be a very exciting fight. But if this were to happen I would take Canelo to win all 3 setting up... Floyd Mayweather vs Canelo Alvarez II. Mayweather wins by a close SD and retires. Canelo walks away as the new biggest star in boxing.
