Canelo's next fight could take place on September 14

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez could face Terence Crawford in what would be a highly-anticipated bout on September 14 in the United States, potentially during Mexico's Independence Day weekend. The speculation arises following insights from sports broadcaster Carlos Aguilar for MVS Deportes, who reports that Sheikh Turki Al-Alshikh is actively pursuing this matchup.

Alvarez, recognized as one of the top pound-for-pound fighters globally, holds a record of 61-2-2. His potential opponent, Terence Crawford, remains undefeated with a 40-0 record. A fight between these two could be monumental for the boxing world, captivating fans worldwide.

The involvement of Sheikh Turki Al-Alshikh highlights significant interest from both fighters' camps and regional promoters aiming to host this major event in the U.S. Furthermore, William Scull might see his mandatory challenge for the IBF title sidelined if Alvarez opts to face Crawford instead.

In addition to Alvarez vs. Crawford, plans for the undercard bouts are also outlined. Jaime Munguia could clash with Caleb Plant; however, a fight featuring Isaac 'Pitbull' Cruz against Shakur Stevenson may face scheduling issues given Cruz’s already confirmed bout on August 3 in Los Angeles. Other encounters would include Luis 'Pantera' Nery versus Stephen Fulton and Luis 'Venado' Lopez up against Brandon Figueroa.
