Alvarez has been having a hard time finding an opponent for his first PPV as the headliner.
Paul Williams unfortunately was paralyzed in a serious motorcycle accident and then James Kirkland either reinjured his shoulder or wanted more money either way he dropped out of the fight.
In the end though, Alvarez might have found an even better opponent in Victor Ortiz.
Because of Ortiz’s fight with Floyd Mayweather he is more well known than Williams or Kirkland and frankly he is probably the more dangerous opponent.
The only caveat is that Ortiz has to win his June 23rd fight with Josesito Lopez. A loss will kill the entire promotion and as we know in boxing a win is never guaranteed.
