Canelo Alvarez, who is set to face Miguel Cotto on November 21 for the middleweight title, re-signed with promoter Golden Boy Promotions on Friday.
Though details of the new contract weren’t revealed, Golden Boy did state that it was a multi-year, multi-fight extension.
“I am loyal, it’s part of my character and that’s why I am extending my contract with Golden Boy Promotions,”said Alvarez. “Golden Boy Promotions knows how to build a fighter and elevate him to a world stage as they have done with me and continue to do with many others. I look forward to working with Golden Boy throughout my career.”
“Canelo Alvarez is no longer the future of the boxing – he is the present, and with a win on Nov. 21 against Miguel Cotto, he will solidify his status as the best in the business,” said Oscar De La Hoya. “It has been a privilege to promote him during his meteoric rise, and we now look forward to many more highlights in a career already filled with many of them.”
