Canelo Alvarez already back in the gym for July 26 fight

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sp

Canelo Alvarez isn't taking much time to celebrate his recent win over Alfredo Angulo, as the young fighter is already back in the gym preparing for his next bout.

Canelo Alvarez's next fight will be set soon, as the 23-year-old Mexican superstar will return to the ring with another Showtime pay-per-view headliner on July 26. Golden Boy is working on finalizing an opponent, and Canelo (43-1-1, 31 KO) is back in the gym to stay in shape and keep himself ready for another full camp.

Alvarez, of course, demolished tough man Alfredo Angulo on March 8 in Las Vegas, generating 350,000 buys in his first headline pay-per-view bout. Alvarez will turn 24 on July 18, so he'll be in the final bit of his training camp for his next fight on his birthday.

Right now, much of the speculation is focused on possibly facing WBA "regular" junior middleweight titleholder Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12 KO), a slick Cuban southpaw without much name value but plenty of Boxing Head Street Cred. In fact, unless Canelo were to move up to 160 pounds, it's hard to imagine who else he might fight. IBF titlist Carlos Molina has a ton of problems right now, the Charlo brothers aren't ready for this sort of fight, and Golden Boy just doesn't have much else in-house besides Lara, who is reportedly going to return on May 2 against Ishe Smith.
