Saul "Canelo" Alvarez batters another nameless fighter from below his weight division.
It's easy to criticize Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, a 22-year-old untested world champ in the 154-pound division, one of the hottest banks of talent available.
Alvarez and his promoter Golden Boy tried to alleviate this problem this past September by pitting the young warrior against Paul Williams, a big, long-limbed veteran who unfortunately suffered a career-ending motorcycle crash.
Then they tried to line up James Kirkland, who would go on to injure his shoulder and have financial concerns that ended the fight.
Finally, Canelo was set to face Victor Ortiz, but the young Mexican warrior got his jaw broken against junior welterweight Josesito Lopez, who beat Ortiz to earn the shot against Alvarez.
Alvarez blew past Lopez as expected, and now we hope that the young redhead will be tested on May 4, 2013 when he's expected back in the ring.
Fellow undefeated champ Austin Trout could be next.
