Talks of a move to cruiserweight for the pound for pound number one fighter in the world Canelo Alvarez have cooled in recent times.
Perhaps a wise decision.
One recalls one of only two men in history to ever win a world title at middleweight and heavyweight.
Not long ago.
Roy Jones Jr.
When he fought John Ruiz years ago at heavyweight and he came back down in weight he was not the same.
People forget Alvarez started at junior middleweight (154 lbs.) so would be something similar to Jones in going to cruiserweight.
Surely leaving that for the end of his career would be best.
One option he could do to gain even more Mexican, American and world wide fans would be the following.
Stay away from cruiserweight for now.
Fight Charlo, David Benavidez and Jaimie Munguia all in 2022.
Munguia last to give him time to go up to super-middleweight or so (168 lbs.).
Then take on Russian knockout artists Bivol and Beterbiev next year.
If he were to go through all five of them in the next two years then go for cruiser.
Win a title there.
If Alexander Usyk of Ukraine was still a heavyweight champion after that fight him too at the end maybe.
Imagine that for a story as one of the greatest Mexican and fighters the world ever saw.
Alvarez and his team will have their own plans of course.
Each to their own.
