Canelo-Alvarez-FTR Canelo Alvarez at presser for May 6 fights vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr

(50-2-1, 32 KOs) meet in a non-title fight on Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Alvarez, 26, announced his next fight immediately, with promoter Oscar De La Hoya confirming the bout is "signed, sealed and delivered" for 16 September.

"I'm very excited", Golovkin told HBO Boxing analyst Max Kellerman.

The fight was a dud and drew audible boos from the crowd because of how one-sided it was.

"In every one of my challenges I want to prove that I am the best active fighter and that I want to make history", Alvarez said of facing Golovkin. "The fight is done. When he went to the ropes, I just didn't have the strength to go after him and do some damage", Chavez said.

"I go back to the Mayweather fight".

"I showed that I can move, I can box, I can do everything against a fighter who was bigger and stronger", Alvarez said following his win, as quoted on Daily News. "The styles are there, they should mesh together - and on my part, that's what you'll see".

Now he will test Alvarez in a non-title fight.

Sharapova targeting return to the top
Canada's Eugenie Bouchard also described the Russian as a "cheater" prior to their matchup at the recent Madrid Open. Lucic-Baroni may want to throw in a few drop shots to upset the rhythm of Sharapova's game and try to beat her.

I'm a bit surprised by the line just because of how each fighter looked most recently.

Alvarez had a 228-71 edge in punches landed against Chavez, and an 83-15 advantage in jabs landed, according to CompuBox. The fight was never in question as Alvarez battered the 31-year-old with combinations that swelled his right eye and broke his spirit. The fact that Chavez Jr. was the taller and bigger man did not make a difference as Canelo was able to score at will. Chavez Jr. did not win a single round against Canelo.

That appears to be in the past, as the fight the boxing world has clamored for is just over the horizon.

Kazakh Golovkin was ringside as Alvarez won 120-108 on all three scorecards. Right now is a different story.

Alvarez, who has never fought above 155 pounds, also weighed 164.

Thus, tonight, the stage was set of an utter beatdown from Canelo. "I really did", Atlas said.

"He beat me. If I attacked more, I would be open for more counterpunches", Chavez said.

Alvarez enters his third straight Cinco de Mayo card with a record of 48-1-1 with 34 KOs, including wins in his last six bouts since his lone loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr.in 2013.
