Saturday 5 March, in California, the Golden Boy Promotions has organized a boxing event focused on a fight that promises to be spectacular: Saul Alvarez vs Matthew Hatton. Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is probably the most talented youth of the world professional boxing: Alvarez is 20 years old and has already a record of 35 wins (26 KO) and no losses (1 draw), in the welterweight division he is already among the top 10, boxrec puts it in sixth place, but in the first five there are names like Floyd Mayweather Jr, Manny Pacquiao, Shane Mosley, Andre Berto and Jan Zaveck. His opponent is Matthew Hatton, brother of the famous Ricky, that in recent years has improved a lot and he is the EBU (European) welterweight champion. Alvarez and Hatton, Saturday, March 5, will fight for the WBC Silver light middleweight title.
On the same evening will be another interesting fight between Daniel Ponce de Leon, number 4 in the world rankings of the featherweight division, who will face the young (21-year-old) and undefeated Adrien Broner; then we will see the long-awaited return of James Kirkland and others names as those of Mikael Zewski, Daniel Jacobs and Seth Mitchell. This boxing event will be broadcast by HBO.
