Canelo "I'm very happy with Golden Boy"

LOS ANGELES (Oct. 4, 2013) -- Canelo Alvarez, former super welterweight world champion and one of the most popular boxers in modern history, confirmed his loyalty and commitment to Golden Boy Promotions, the leading boxing promoter in the world.


"I am very happy with Golden Boy Promotions," said Canelo today. "I'm scheduled to travel next week to Los Angeles to meet with Richard Schaefer and Eric Gomez for a meeting that we hold after each fight.


"I have a contract with Golden Boy Promotions with which I am very happy. Any event or matter that points to the contrary is false."

The response likely comes from a comment made by Top Rank President Bob Arum. Arum responded to a question regarding a possible fight with Canelo and Cotto, and working with Golden Boy to make the fight happen. While Cotto remains a free agent he has shown is interest in working with Top Rank. Arum responded by saying that Canelo was a free agent right now and Golden Boy had nothing to do with it at this point.
