Recently, the biggest news in the boxing world is that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is signed a long term deal with HBO and there have been talks with a mega fight between Canelo and Miguel Cotto. Along with this massive fight, there have been talks that they would like to make that fight on Cinco De Mayo weekend.
If this is indeed true Floyd Mayweather would either have to change dates or get a mega fight of his own. In order for Floyd to get a bigger match up than Canelo vs. Cotto, match ups against Keith Thurman or Amir Khan wont be enough. In my opinion, the only fight that could dethrone a Canelo-Cotto fight is the fight we have been waiting too long for and that's the Manny Pacquiao fight.
Floyd Mayweather has nothing to lose if he were to go head to head with a Canelo-Cotto fight because he will be guaranteed a minimum purse of 30 million, so its up to te people over at Showtime to give Floyd a tougher challenge rather than the hand picked opponents he has been picking for years now.
What do you think, Can Canelo take the Mexican holidays away from Floyd Mayweather?
