Star boxer Canelo Alvarez re-signs with Golden Boy Promotions

September 11, 2015

Mexican boxer Canelo Álvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) has signed a multi-fight, multi-year contract extension with Golden Boy Promotions, the company today announced.  Alvarez is currently training for a mega-fight on November 21 against Puerto Rican star Miguel Cotto.

"I am loyal, it's part of my character and that's why I am extending my contract with Golden Boy Promotions," said Álvarez, the former WBC and WBA Super Welterweight World Champion. "Golden Boy Promotions knows how to build a fighter and elevate him to a world stage as they have done with me and continue to do with many others. I look forward to working with Golden Boy throughout my career."

Álvarez is a poised and talented boxer-puncher who already is a legitimate pay-per-view star. He made his pro debut in 2005 at 15-years-old and quickly became one of the most popular prizefighters in the world with his exciting fighting style and reputation for taking on all comers.

"Canelo Álvarez is no longer the future of the boxing - he is the present, and with a win on November 21 against Miguel Cotto, he will solidify his status as the best in the business," said Oscar De La Hoya, Chairman and CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. "It has been a privilege to promote him during his meteoric rise, and we now look forward to many more highlights in a career already filled with many of them."

A former world champion, Canelo is eager to once again hold a title belt, and he will get his chance to do so in November when he battles for Cotto's WBC and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Championships.

His record includes victories over some of the best fighters in the junior middleweight division including Austin Trout, Alfredo Angulo, Shane Mosley, Erislandy Lara, and James Kirkland. Canelo's lone blemish in 45 fights came against Floyd Mayweather.
