Saul Alvarez is tentatively scheduled to fight again on June 18, most likely in Mexico.
“Canelo” is coming off a one-sided decision over Matthew Hatton in a junior middleweight fight last Saturday at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., that gave the 20-year-old his first major title.
Richard Schaefer, his promoter, said it’s important that Alvarez – a huge attraction his native country – rotate between the U.S. and Mexico for his fights.
“He has to stay active there. The fight probably will be in Mexico,” he said.
An opponent has yet to be selected.

“I had a meeting with (Bradley’s promoter) Gary Shaw,” Schaefer said. “We had a good meeting. I shared our conversation with Team Khan. And Amir made it clear that’s a fight he wants to do. He’s really just focusing on Paul McCloskey, though. He doesn’t really want to talk about Timothy Bradley right now.”
“Based on what I was told by the Khans and Amir – and based on my conversation with Gary – I definitely feel this is a fight that will happen,” Schaefer said.
“It seems to be clear that at 154 pounds no one wants to fight Lara,” Schaefer said.
