Canelo Alvarez this week signed a multi fight, multi year deal with HBO which has sent shockwaves throughout the boxing community. This opens up a potential super fight with Manny Pacquiao which is an option considering Oscar De La Hoya has recently begun working with Top Rank. Alvarez vs Pacquiao is one of the biggest fights that can be made in boxing.
Alvarez is set to face Joshua Clottey in December and a win will set up a major bout between Miguel Cotto and Manny Pacquiao. The move to HBO makes sense and is a smart move by Canelo's team and HBO.
