Canelo Alvarez clocks over 200 MPH The middleweight champion participates in & # 39; The Run To Monaco & # 39; prior to this weekend's French Grand Prix Monaco in flashy cars & ls.
The Mexican star currently has the WBA super middleweight world title and wants to add Saunders & # 39; WBO belt for his collection.
According to the Athletic Alvarez also considered colleague Brit Callum Smith a potential opponent, but the title of Saunders was a more attractive proposition.
Negotiations between the two hunters are set to continue and should the fight come to fruition, Alvarez would fall back to super middleweight after his step-up two weight classes to Sergey Kovalev defeat.
The win saw the 29-year-old become a four-weight champion but he quickly left the light-heavyweight title to unite the super-middleweight division.
Saunders & # 39; last fight came on the undercard of KSI & # 39; s rematch with Logan Paul at the Staples Center in November.
The 30-year-old British managed to beat Marceloa Esteban Coceres in the penultimate round to pick up the win.
Promoter Eddie Hearn, who represents Saunders, would like to put his husband against Alvarez, who has a mega-10 combat agreement with streaming site DAZN.
Alvarez regularly fights on party weekend May 5, with Daniel Jacobs his most recent victim in which the Mexican beat him on points last year.
Saunders is currently undefeated after 29 fights and has once successfully defended his belt.
Callum Smith denied the victory over the brave John Ryder, but his performance will have given rival Cinnamon Alvarez little cause for concern
Internet cried terribly this weekend, but at admirable wise John Ryder relieved himself of continuing concern whether Callum Smith has a real chance of winning the super fight that he wants to win when Canelo Alvarez comes.
& # 39; Don't worry, & # 39; said the Mersey man who had previously convinced us that he was the best super middleweight in the world, & # 39; the greater the challenge, the better I fight & # 39 ;.
We can only hope. Believe him when he adds: & # 39; I need the fear factor to show me how good I can be. & # 39;
That motivation for stomach ache was not at work before Smith came out to defend his world title against Ryder. When he started for this Liverpool fan in the second half, he was almost too late.
Ryder wavered Smith – as never before seen, let alone in his house – Town Arena – the longer it went. If the championship distance in boxing was still 15 rounds instead of 12, then one of the hardest men ever coming from trendy Islington would probably have added an extra to this year's collection of major disruptions.
Doing business towards the end, bloody with a cut above his right eye, Smith clung to his WBA belt like a man almost drowned.
But the massive chirping of theft that followed the unanimous decision neglected Smith's winning of the opening rounds.
He had continued to act during his natural physical benefits – six inches in height and eight in range – there would have been no controversy. Instead, for whatever reason, he allowed himself to be dragged into a war by the grossly underrated and bravely degrading Ryder.
There were two or three times that Ryder was just one angry hook to drop the Goliath for him
Yet it was the unjust breadth of scoring instead of the verdict itself that provoked the protests.
[Smith's score eerst]
Round 1) 10-9
7) 9 -10
12 ) 9-10
Total: Smith 115, Ryder 113
Terr y O & # 39; Connor & # 39; s card from 117-111 requires control by the British Boxing Board of Control. The two Spanish judges were closer to reality at 116-112, but it was more than that.
According to my calculation, Smith reached 115-113 at home, but if this is a fight, there can be no serious complaint, anyway
Ryder felt saddened of course. His trainer Tony Sims had a case when he condemned the details of the score as & # 39; ridiculous & # 39 ;. He also called for a review of the assessment system and a rematch. Neither is likely.
Smith & # 39; s trainer Joe Gallagher said: & # 39; Callum won right away and we continue. & # 39; To what? & # 39; Hopefully Canelo, & # 39; said the youngest of the four fighting Smith brothers from Liverpool and added: & # 39; If that means going to Las Vegas in May, I'll grab my hands for the chance. & # 39;
It is the left hands that split his eyebrow and occasionally shot his legs that should be remembered. If Cinnamon or Gennady Golovkin ends up with their strength on the hooks, there can be serious problems.
Gallagher is right to remind us that his bizarre long super-middleweight deserves respect for an undefeated career in which the exceptional achievement came with the emphatic victory over George Groves to land its world title.
Cinnamon or Golovkin would inject the necessary fear into Smith's psyche, but this version that he admitted to being "not my best" would not have improved his market value in America.
Other options are a union with another of the 12 stone title holders, perhaps the o-unbeaten WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders. But it is doubtful whether one of those fights would justify the realization of his long-held dream of boxing in Anfield.
Smith & # 39; s relative inactivity of recent times – this was only his second defense since Groves stopped 14 months ago – May rust have previously put fear in this dip in shape.
If yes, the sooner and he fights again, the better. It doesn't matter who reaches the opposite corner.

Cinnamon Alvarez beats Sergey Kovalev in 11th round of light heavyweight title fight in Las Vegas to become four-weight world champion
Canelo Alvarez landed a left-right late in the 11th round Saturday night, dropping Sergey Kovalev onto the canvas and ending their light heavyweight title fight.
Kovalev was lowered to his knees, his arms draped over the middle ring rope when the fight was stopped at 2:15 of the round in Las Vegas.
It was a dramatic finish for a fight that had little drama until the knockdown. Kovalev was more than just late in the fight and was not injured when Alvarez landed on the left, followed by the right.
The Mexican big, who moved two weight classes, won his fourth title in the same number of weights. He celebrated it by kissing the glove on his right hand while Kovalev's handlers jumped into the ring to see if their hunter was OK. from jabs and right hands to the face.
Both hunters fought for the most part carefully, with Kovalev content to use his long-distance jab and Alvarez looking for hooks on the body. The audience in the MGM Grand roared several times, unhappy with the lack of action.
Alvarez was a 4-1 favorite despite raising two weight classes to fight for a piece of the 175-pound title from Kovalev. He took the fight against Kovalev instead of a third fight with Gennady Golovkin as part of a $ 365 million (£ 282 million) deal he signed with the DAZN streaming service.
Both hunters took naps in their changing rooms while they about 90 minutes st undercard bolt waited before entering the ring. The delay was for DAZN, who wanted to wait until the UFC card in New York was ready before the fight started.
Fans in the MGM Grand arena watched the UFC main event on the big screens while the hunters waited
Kovalev checked the distance early with his jab, stuck it in Alvarez & # 39; s face while with raised gloves he searched for an opening on the inside. Alvarez threw sparing punches, a pair of large punches that missed when Alvarez returned with jabs and an occasional right hand. I carry it down. He continued to wear gloves that were held close to his face and pressed on his larger opponent.
& # 39; It is clear that they still have unfinished business … we sit down and discuss it for 2020 & # 39 ;: Cinnamon Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin triptych is at stake, DAZN admits chief
The middleweight rivals were involved in two epic encounters in 2017 and 2018, with Cinnamon claimed a close win in the rematch after a controversial draw.
The Mexican sensation, which has since conquered the world title in the super-middleweight division and united in the middleweight, will step up to the lightweight to take the pound-for-pound Sergey Kovalev next month.
Golovkin has meanwhile regained his IBO and IBF world titles by Sergiy te beat Derevyanchenko wins on a limited number of points earlier this month.
Both Canelo and Golovkin have long-term combat contracts with DAZN and Markowski have revealed that there are plans to make a money-bearing third installment in 2020.
& # 39; We are known and it is clear that Cinnamon and Triple G have many unfinished things and the fans want the third fight, & # 39; he told The Sun.
There are huge debates about the results of those two fights, as a result we want the third fight to happen and Canelo knows that. Realizing that is an important part of our relationship with them.
& # 39; Assuming that Cinnamon endures the challenge of Kovalev, this is not a safe assumption because it is a great test against a light-heavyweight at the top of his game, we will sit down and plan discuss before 2020. & # 39;
& # 39; We have fought twice, 24 rounds. I hit him, so he represents no challenge & # 39 ;: Cinnamon Alvarez rejects the idea of trilogy fight with Gennady Golovkin
Golovkin looked less threatening than when he knocked out Steve Rolls in June during a workpoint victory over the Ukrainian Serhiy Derevianchenko who was proposed by many experts to make their unification battle at Madison Square Garden to have won.
The 40th victory of the heavy warrior has left the fight in the hope that he will seal a third game against Canelo, who handed Golovkin the only defeat of his career during a points win in Nevada in September 2018 after a tie between the couple a year earlier.
[19459021ThatfightisnotachallengeformeatthemomentCanelo told The Independent and called Derevyanchenko the winner of Golovkin & # 39; s inconclusive fight on October 5.
& # 39; We have fought twice, 24 rounds. I beat him, so he represents no challenge. I said it before the fight and I will repeat it. & # 39;
The way of Canelo & # 39; s victory over Golovkin, who split the judges after eight rounds and was considered by many critics to be the wrong decision, means talking about a third fight has rarely violated.
Golovkin outland Canelo in their original draw, while retaining the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF and IBO middleweight titles on a split decision before losing them a year later.
rival & # 39; s display against Derevianchenko, claiming that he had shown that body shots were the way to hurt Golovkin.
The hugely popular Mexican, whose £ 278 million with broadcasters DAZN is the most lucrative in sports history, strongly hinted that he could rule the kind of figures that made the original fight the third highest yield ever in the world. gave boxing.
& # 39; What he does represent is a good thing, & # 39; granted Cinnamon, which helped generate revenues of more than £ 93m in the second fight.
& # 39; So if they offer me something really good, the third fight might happen. & # 39;
Canelo will fight Sergey Kovalev for the WBO light heavyweight title at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on November 2, with which he first appeared since he had unanimously obtained decision points on Daniel Jacobs on May 4
Cinnamon Alvarez will climb two weight distributions to light heavyweight to take on Sergey Kovalev in November bout
Alvarez, who currently holds titles at 160 pounds, will try to become a champion in his fourth weight class when he meets Kovalev in a scheduled 12-lap fight at the MGM Grand.
The fight was announced Friday by Golden Boy Promotions, which promotes the Mexican champion.
29-year-old Alvarez enters a fight after a points win over Daniel Jacobs in May.
Kovalev had his piece of light heavyweight title defended on August 24 by Anthony Yarde stopping in Russia.
Kovalev (34-3-1) is known as a big puncher with knockouts in 29 of his victories. But the 36-year-old Russian lost twice to Andre Ward and sometimes fought against Yarde before stopping him in the 11th round.
Alvarez (52-1-2) is the greatest hunter and star from Mexico. His only defeat came in 2013 when he lost with a majority decision against Floyd Mayweather Jr. He has had titles in three weight classes, starting at 154 pounds.
& # 39; Cinnamon should be praised for asking him to challenge Sergey Kovalev, & # 39; said Kathy Duva, who promotes Kovalev. "Win or lose, he will write history and Sergey is delighted to have the opportunity to test his courage against another future Hall of Famer."
The fight is broadcast by the streaming service DAZN, which has a long-term deal with Alvarez.
David de Gea & # 39; s coach Emilio Alvarez leaves Man United after the Spanish keeper plunged into shape last season, raising questions about his methods.
David van Gea & # 39; s coach Emilio Alvarez has left Manchester United
The 47-year-old Alvarez was United Kingdom in 2016 to work closely with De Gea, who had previously coached the goalkeeper while he was in Atletico Madrid.
Indeed, Van Gea wrote to Alvarez for helping him become one of the top keepers and his employment with United was seen as influential in keeping their coveted star happy in Old Trafford, amidst Real Madrid . ]
However, from Gea & # 39; s dip in last year, caused vr agen about Alvarez and his methods within Ole Gunnar Solskjaer & Coaching.
Solskjaer returned former academy coach Richard Hartis as a senior goalkeeper coach in June and was seen as a further threat to the role of Alvarez.
Alvarez and De Gea are also considered to have grown less dense in recent weeks with their working relationship described as & # 39; more dutiful & # 39 ;
The Spaniard informed the staff that he was leaving last week and said goodbye on Friday.
Van Gea previously agreed to a new £ 375,000 contract per week with the UK and can now work more intensively with Hartis or consider asking another personal trainer to improve his skills .
A statement from Manchester United reads: & Manchester United confirms that Emilio Alvarez is leaving the club.
& # 39; Emilio joined the goalkeeper coach in 2016 and played an important role in developing and coaching the first goalkeepers during his time in Manchester.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said & # 39; I want to thank Emilio for all his help and hard work since my return to the club. We all wish him all the best for the future. & # 39;
Emilio Alvarez said: & # 39; I will always be proud of this club. I wish you every success in your efforts. "
A story of two Saturdays, in the city that never sleeps, has certainly paved the way for the most dramatic fisticuffs of the year.
& # 39; s Rocky Horror Show
& # 39; s rocking horror show
The two are connected by even more than this lively contrast between triumph and disaster. Joshua & # 39; s crushing zone by Andy Ruiz Jr. cleared the decks of Madison Square Garden for a statement of such eloquent violence by Golovkin that it is virtually impossible for  Canelo Alvarez to take a third fight with Triple G. to refuse.
With the heavyweight division seismically cheated by the loss of Joshua
enchanted Gennady Golovkin box lovers with the knockout of Steve Rolls of all his world titles – and thus at least for the time being – the epicenter of price fighting in 2019 must be Canelo -Golovkin 111 are on September 14.
Tyson Fury is expected to beat Tom Schwarz in Germany in Germany next Saturday, but even the retake with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder cannot take place until 2020.
The trilogate between the two exceptional middleweights of their time must now be central.
After Golovkin the brave Steve Rolls with threw the front down
Madison Square Garden seven days after he had electrified the loss of Anthony Joshua on the canvas with an almighty left hook in the fourth round of Saturday, sent Canelo & # 39 ; s promoter Oscar De La Hoya him this free tweet: & # 39; Nice comeback victory. Fight a real hunter now, win a belt and I will consider doing the third fight # Canelo & # 39; syourboss. & # 39;
That is not quite the Golden Boy's decision to make. Far from it. And the time is right.
And the time is right and the time is right.
Canelo certainly watched as the GGG force returned to the Kazakhst, who robbed him of his middleweight world championships in Las Vegas. He will have heard New York & # 39; s acclaim when Golovkin told the more than 12,000 attendees: & # 39; We all know who the fans want me to fight next. & # 39;
If he paid attention to the Mexican idol, it will know how unwise it would be to give Golovkin the recuperative benefits of another fight before they meet again.
The brutality of Golovkin & # 39; s execution sets up a third fight with Canelo Alvarez
There were Rusty moments in the second round when he was heavily caught by Canada's Rolls, although the ruinous outcome had quickly become inevitable.
Another warm-up battle and the entire Golovkin arsenal will be charged to full firepower. And let alone that he is 37, he is still the killer of the face every inch.
There is no percentage for Canelo, either tax or fistically, in postponing the inevitable. His best chance to prevent Golovkin from avenging the excessive draw and the dubious victory he received from sympatico judges during the Mexican national holiday weekends in Vegas, is the fastest to beat him
Similarly, Triple G knows he must wink.
Golovkin launches another vicious attack on Steve Rolls in New York's Canelo from the Nevada desert, hopefully to the Big Apple.
He says: & # 39; The story has now changed. It is time for a different atmosphere. I have a few bad feelings about Vegas, but I love Madison Square Garden and the fans here love me. & # 39;
Rolls helped him resolve that by coming to do the fight I had promised, rather than just want to survive
The undefeated, albeit relatively unknown, man from Toronto went for broke and won that second round by landing those solid punches that showed no less than Sugar Ray Leonard thought on television whether Golovkin could be in marginal decline
The answer to
Golovkin will watch the controversial draw and defeat his reco That hypothesis came with the brutal attacks of the body that began to break down and forced, with his hands lowered as the fourth. Golovkin poured through that opening with rasping combinations to the head, culminating in a left hook of such a concussive blast that his opponent fell first.
Blind instinct had tried to swing Rolls straight, but he collapsed again and was counted.
The most cited sentence in Charles Dickens' masterpiece, A Tale of Two Cities, reads: & # 39; It's a much, much better thing than I (now) than I have ever done. & # 39; By the time his epic trilogy with Canelo is finished, Golovkin hopes to claim that sentiment for himself.
