Canelo Alvarez is uncertain who he will fight next.
On Saturday night in Las Vegas, Alvarez suffered a decision loss to Dmitry Bivol in his shot at moving up in weight to try and become the new WBA light heavyweight champion. Bivol used his size effectively to get the win and after the fight, Alvarez was noncommittal on what would be next for him.
“We’re gonna go to see what’s next, to talk about it and we’ll let you know,” Alvarez said through a translator. “We’ll see what happens in the future. But we’ll just have to wait and see what’s gonna happen.”
Although Alvarez lost, he still remains one of the biggest draws in the sport and doesn’t lose much stock as he keeps moving way up in weight to challenge himself. Not many boxers have done this before but there is a chance the trilogy bout against Gennady Golovkin happens next.
However, Alvarez says he will rematch Bivol one day and he believes he will fare much better. But, he does admit he is the best at 168lbs.
“We want the rematch,” Alvarez said, “and we’re going to do much better in the rematch… My most natural weight, [where I’m] most comfortable, is 168. And that’s where I feel best. So, we’re gonna go and see if we’re gonna take on this rematch [with Bivol].”
No matter what fight is next, whether it is the rematch against Bivol or the trilogy against GGG, they will both be massive fights for Canelo Alvarez. Many will want to see if the Mexican can get past the size of Bivol or put a stamp on the trilogy over GGG.
For now, Alvarez is uncertain when either fight will happen but he has been known to fight on Cinco de Mayo weekend and Mexican Independence weekend in September.
