After the terrible news about Paul Williams being involved in a motor cycle accident, Golden Boy Promotions is looking for a new challenger to face WBC light middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
On Wednesday, Chepo Reynoso said that Miguel Cotto will not face Alvarez, but American James Kirkland or Austin Trout will be considered.
A bout against Trout will be kind of a rematch for Alvarez as Trout defeated his brother Rigoberto “Español” Alvarez last year in Guadalajara. Chepo said that Golden Boy told him they feel very sad for the accident that Williams suffered and now they are looking for a great rival.
