30/05/12 Alvarez v Kirkland looks likely
After the recent news of Paul Williams it has now been confirmed that a replacement is being found for 'Canelo' Alvarez and it looks to be in the shape of James Kirkland. A young 31-1 KO specialist, who is not to be looked over and could certainly cause Canelo a lot of issues. Alvarez the current WBC junior middleweight Champion has just come off the back of a dominating victory over Shane Mosley and is now looking for another test. Alvarez who has often been critasised for not being in the ring with anyone who can hurt him would defiantly answer the critics, as Kirkland bring 27 KO's to the table. Kirklands only loss came at the hands of Nobuhiro Ishida 3 years ago and it ended with him having a taste of his own medicine, since then he has gone on to look dominant and has rebuilt his bond with trainer Ann Wolfe. I still think Alvarez has the edge over Kirkland and has the unbeaten fight record to prove it, convincing wins over Hatton, Cintron and Mosley would suggest that he would add Kirkland to his list of defeated Boxers. Its certainly a fight that offers so much, lets hope they can make it happen for September 15th.
