Mexican authorities seek arrest warrant for Canelo Alvarez

Josh Hedges

Mexican authorities are looking to secure an arrest warrant for Canelo Alvarez, stemming from an alleged incident with Ulises Solis in 2011.

Canelo Alvarez probably didn't need this just two days before the biggest fight of his career, but Mexican authorities are hoping to secure an arrest warrant as the Attorney General in Jalisco has decided to move forward with a case in which Canelo is alleged to have beaten former junior flyweight (108 lbs) titlist Ulises "Archi" Solis in 2011.

Canelo and his brother Juan Ramon Alvarez are both named in the case; Canelo for the alleged attack, and Juan Ramon for allegedly supplying false information to police.

Alvarez (41-0-1, 30 KO) is due to face Austin Trout (26-0, 14 KO) on Saturday night at San Antonio's Alamadome, in front of over 30,000 fans and what figures to be a big worldwide audience on TV, including Showtime in the States, Televisa in Mexico, and BoxNation in the United Kingdom.

The outcome was already considered debatable, and the fight is a highly-anticipated event for fans both die-hard and casual. Does this news worry you as far as Canelo's chances against Trout go? This could potentially be a big mental block for him, and it hasn't come weeks ahead of the fight with time to process it -- we're 48 hours away.
