Canelo Alvarez breaks with Televisa?

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Mexican boxing superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has announced that his next fight will not be televised by the Mexican broadcast network Televisa, whom he has been with throughout his boxing career. Through his Instagram account, CaneloPower, Alvarez made the announcement: “Good morning, for the date of July 12, it has been decided that it will not be televised by Televisa due to work and personal issues. Thank you for your support and we’ll find the best for you and me, have a great day, regards.”

A source close to Alvarez told the following: “Televisa hasn’t treated Alvarez as the great global star he is. Although many think he’s the darling of the network, the truth he is not … it’s not official yet, but it appears that Alvarez wishes to take a different path and now could listen offers of the other broadcasters.”

Canelo Alvarez is the owner of the TV rights for Mexico. Promoter Golden Boy Promotions has the U.S. TV rights.
