De La Hoya Can See Canelo At 160 or 168
Canelo Alvarez would earn his third world title in as many weight classes on December 15th with a third round TKO of Rocky Fielding for the WBA “regular” super middleweight title.
Alvarez, who enjoyed not needing to cut weight for the fight at super middleweight may stay at 168 pounds, may stay at the weight for his next fight on May 4th.
Following the fight taking place at Madison Square Garden, Alvarez’ promoter Oscar De La Hoya says all options are open for Canelo’s return.
“Canelo fighting at 168 showed he can fight at either 168 or 160. We’ve already set aside the T-Mobile Arena for Cinco de Mayo in Las Vegas. We have no opponent whatsoever – zero. We’re not thinking of nobody,” De La Hoya said.
“We’re going to enjoy the holidays and enjoy our families. After the holidays, as a team, we’ll collectively determine who Canelo is going to fight. Whether it’s 168 or 160, there are plenty of challenges out there for Canelo.”
