Canelo Álvarez could get into the ring very soon | Steve Marcus / .
Despite the fact that sports leagues have been working to return to action, it is still unknown whether “Canelo” Álvarez will fight in September, since his promoter, Óscar de la Hoya, assured that they are analyzing the scenarios and mentioned that it is difficult to organize a fight in times of pandemic.
De la Hoya commented that there has been no rest to try to make sure that the Mexican climbs into a ring in September. “I have been meeting with Canelo, DAZN and potential opponents. They are not easy to coordinate, the negotiation is very complicated, especially for what we are experiencing because we are not going to have an audience,” he said.
