Canelo calls out Erislandy Lara for July 12th showdown

Saul Canelo Alvarez (43-1-1, 31 KO's) announced today that he will be returning to the ring on July 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. Canelo said via twitter that Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12 KO's) is his first option and that they have sent an offer to Lara's camp to accept a showdown with him on July 12th. Lara is scheduled to face Ishe Smith on May 2nd. Lara has been calling Canelo out since his win over Austin Trout in December. Whether or not Lara takes the offer, which it's doubtful Lara will turn it down, Canelo will return on July 12th. Lara has yet to officially respond to Canelo's offer.
