Prosecutor seeks Canelo arrest warrant

Just three days before the biggest fight of his career, the Attorney General from the State of Jalisco, Mexico has asked a judge to issue an arrest warrant against WBC super welterweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. Media in Mexico are reporting that the warrant is in response to a complaint filed by former IBF light flyweight champion Ulises “Archi” Solis who alleges that Canelo broke his jaw after an argument over a woman in October 2011.

Authorities are also seeking a warrant against Canelo’s brother Juan Ramon Alvarez for allegedly making false declarations to a magistrate.

Canelo has always denied that he hit Solis and insists that it was his brother who hit “Archi” as an act of self-defense. Solis claims they are lying to protect Canelo’s image.
