Canelo Alvarez had been in negotiations for a fight against middleweight champ Miguel Cotto, until talks fell through, as confirmed by Oscar De La Hoya last week.

However, it appears as though Alvarez may now have his next opponent – James Kirkland.

Earlier today, Canelo posted this on his official Twitter account:

Canelo vs. Kirkland is on – @CaneloOficial

De La Hoya also told the LA Times that the fight will be on May 2 on HBO, assuming Pacquiao-Mayweather doesn’t come off.
