James Kirkland vs Saul Alvarez?
By Steve Kim, MaxBoxing (May 30, 2012) Doghouse Boxing
With the unfortunate circumstances surrounding Paul Williams (williams crash likely paralyzed), there was still the business of boxing to attend to. And WBC junior middleweight titlist Saul Alvarez, who was to have faced Williams on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, needed a new foe.

Kirkland was originally offered this fight but it was then decided by his handlers that because of surgery to his right shoulder, he would have to return in October.
