Reports are everywhere saying Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, Golden Boy Promotions’ golden boy of the moment, will face Josesito – let’s call him “Jawbreaker” – Lopez on Sept. 15 at the MGM in Las Vegas. And now those reports appear to have been confirmed.
The fight is scheduled for Showtime pay-per-view.
While Golden Boy had yet to officially announce the fight as of Wednesday afternoon – it was busy hyping the Amir Khan vs. Danny Garcia bout this Saturday – Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer did confirm the card to Ring Magazine. Canelo-Lopez is at this point happening on the same night as Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Sergio Martinez for the WBC middleweight championship at the nearby Thomas & Mack Center, live on rival HBO PPV.
