Canelo Alvarez will face former welterweight titleholder Joshua Clottey on Dec. 6 on HBO at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, Oscar De La Hoya informed RingTV.com on Tuesday. This is NOT a PPV fight. Alvarez recently left showtime and signed a deal with HBO.
Clottey, who turns 37 on Oct. 6, is coming off three consecutive wins. His last fight was with Anthony Mundine in April where he won by UD. Clottey has an impressive resume and is looking forward to being back in the spot light.
