Boxing: Which of These 7 Fighters Could Be Mexico's Next Great Champion?

Is Canelo Alvarez the next great Mexican champion?

Mexico has a proud fighting tradition.

When you think of Mexican fighting, you think names like Julio Cesar Chavez and Salvador Sanchez. 

The current generation also features several men who have honorably carried the torch including Juan Manuel Marquez, Erik Morales and Marco Antonio Barrera. 

But those men are now beginning to fade form the scene. Barrera is virtually retired, and Marquez and Morales could be if they each lose tough bouts later this year.

So the question now becomes, who's next?

Who will be the next fighter to seize the torch and become Mexico's best?

Disclaimer: This is not to imply that any of these fighters will reach the status of the men listed above. All of them are either in or will be in the Hall of Fame. This doesn't mean I feel all or even any of the fighters will reach that status, just that they have a chance.
