Bob Arum had made statements that Saul Alvarez was now a promotional free agent. But those claims were refuted on Friday afternoon when this statement from “Canelo” was sent out by Golden Boy:
Canelo Alvarez, former super welterweight world champion and one of the most popular boxers in modern history, confirmed his loyalty and commitment to Golden Boy Promotions, the leading boxing promoter in the world.
“I am very happy with Golden Boy Promotions,” said Canelo today. “I'm scheduled to travel next week to Los Angeles to meet with Richard Schaefer and Eric Gomez for a meeting that we hold after each fight.
“I have a contract with Golden Boy Promotions with which I am very happy. Any event or matter that points to the contrary is false.”
What's more interesting is to see how legal proceedings go regarding All-Star Boxing and Golden Boy, who at one time co-promoted Alvarez.
