By Gabriel F. Cordero

Word is Josesito Lopez is in final negotiations to be the new opponent of the WBC super welterweight champion Saul Alvarez on September 15 in Las Vegas. Plans are underway for “Canelo” and Lopez to have a promotional tour with stops in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Texas and Mexico City beginning as soon as July 23. The 27-year-old Lopez moved up from from the 140lb division to defeat former WBC welterweight world champion Victor Ortiz on June 30. He will now move up again to the 154lb division to take on Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, who will do all his training in Los Angeles, California with his trainers Jose ¨Chepo¨ Reynoso and Eddy Reynoso. An official announcement is expected shortly.
