Canelo Fielding Network Offers
With HBO leaving live boxing broadcasting, Canelo Alvarez will need to find a new network to broadcast his fights.
While this was on the table for Alvarez as his September 15th win over Gennady Golovkin was the last of his HBO contract, Alvarez and is team are moving fast to find a new network to broadcast a potential December return.
”We’ve been getting a lot of calls, we’re going to sit down with him, [Golden Boy CEO] Oscar [De La Hoya] and myself – and analyze everything but there’s a lot of offers out there,” confirmed the president of Golden Boy, Eric Gomez, to BoxingScene.com.
“Everybody’s calling us, there’s some networks that have called as well to inquire. So right now everything’s wide open, everything’s wide open. We’re going to look at all the details and do our due diligence.”
“There’s some that do boxing, there’s others that don’t do boxing but are interested,” Gomez explained about potential options to air Canelo fights.
Gomez also claimed to Boxing Scene that Alvarez would be ready to return to the ring in December. “[Canelo] has been cleared to fight, he’s on vacation right now. When he gets back we’re going to go over opponents with him and then he’s going to decide. It’s up to him, it’s clearly up to him if he wants to fight in December.”
