Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer made it clear on Saturday night that Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will box as planned September 15th on pay-per-view (the scuttlebutt was that this card would land on either HBO or Showtime) and with James Kirkland coming up with some ridiculous demands (after agreeing to the fight late last week), it looks like whoever has a junior middleweight belt will be on Alvarez's radar for the near future. Schaefer acknowledged that Trout- who has the WBA strap- is in the running to face “Canelo” next. The winner of the June 30th rematch between IBF beltholder Cornelius Bundrage and Cory Spinks is a runner-up option. He even mentioned Zaurbek Baysangurov as a future foe, as he holds the WBO title. 
The goal is to consolidate all the belts in that division.
It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. On Friday afternoon, Arum commented, “We're going to have a battle with Golden Boy over September 15th. See, we have the pay-per-view date but they're talking about doing a ‘Canelo’ fight against whom God knows on Showtime. We'll be happy to go with [Julio Cesar] Chavez Jr.- [Sergio] Martinez on pay-per-view if we're ready to go September 15th. I'll sit down with Lou DiBella and we'll figure out where we're going and it may very well be that we opt to go the first weekend in October with that fight in Cowboys Stadium because that's a ‘bye’ week for the Cowboys.”
First things first, Chavez Jr. still has to get past Andy Lee on July 16th in El Paso, Texas. As for a fall fight with Martinez, well, seeing is believing.
