Alvarez Ready To Face Cintron Challenge

Despite his well publicized alleged assault on IBF light-flyweight champion Ulysses ‘Archie’ Solis a couple of days ago Saul Alvarez has announced he will defend his WBC light-middleweight crown against Kermit Cintron in Mexico on the Thanks Giving weekend of November 26.

The world title double header, which will also feature Adrien Broner facing Argentina’s Vicente Rodriguez for the vacant WBO Junior Lightweight, will be broadcast on HBO’s Boxing After Dark.

"Kermit Cintron is a worthy challenger for my title and I’m looking forward to fighting him at home in Mexico," said Alvarez at the press conference to announce the fight. "Everyone knows what happens when Mexicans and Puerto Ricans meet in the ring, and I expect that we’re going to give the world a show to remember, but I guarantee that I will leave with my belt on November 26."

"It’s been a while since I’ve worn a world title belt around my waist and I can’t wait to do it again in November," said Cintron. "Alvarez is a good, young fighter, but I have the experience and the power to beat him. I know this fight is in his backyard, but I won’t need judges for this one."

"We know it is a huge undertaking, but thanks to HBO, we’re able to deliver two world championship fights on the same night from Mexico and the United States on November 26," said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. "In pitting a young champion looking to continue his reign against a veteran who is eager to win another world title, Alvarez vs. Cintron looks to be an all out action fight to remember. In Broner vs. Rodriguez, we will see two young fighters battle it out as each tries to win his first world title. On November 26, fight fans in Mexico, the United States and those watching around the world, will not be disappointed."

"We are delighted to offer our subscribers a holiday treat with an international flair, said Key Davis senior vice president of programming, HBO Sports. "With two great fights from Cincinnati and Mexico, this show should provide sports fans with exciting boxing action on Thanksgiving weekend."

The HBO Boxing After Dark telecast will air at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT in the United States, with Televisa airing the fights in Mexico.
