In this week’s 3 punch combo I will begin by stating my opinion on who I would like to see Saul “Canelo” Alvarez face in his upcoming spring bout. Next, I will state why there is no need for a bout between David Haye and Vitali Klitschko. And finally, I'll break down the upcoming Lightweight crossroads bout between Dannie Williams and John Molina. Canelo’s Next Opponent Credit: Tom Casino / Showtime Saul “Canelo” Alvarez appears headed toward a spring fight.  Many names have been tossed about but so far no opponent has been announced. So let me state my opinion on which direction I think Canelo should go. First of all, I am going to put Floyd Mayweather Jr. aside right now as a potential opponent for Canelo. It seems Golden Boy is trying to build that fight up some more and a spring matchup is unlikely. So with Mayweather out I feel the top remaining opponent for Canelo would be Austin Trout.  Trout is an undefeated titleholder and is coming off a career defining win over Miguel Cotto.
