Canelo Alvarez is ready for boxing’s biggest foes

Manny Pacquiao will fight Juan Manuel Marquez for the fourth time in Vegas on Dec. 8, and that’s among the dates Schaefer is considering for Alvarez’s next fight. Cotto is already booked for Dec. 1 against Austin Trout, and Mayweather likely wouldn’t be ready to fight that soon, but another contender could step in against Canelo _ and Schaefer claims he wouldn’t hesitate to take on Pacquiao and Marquez.

“I would do it again,” Schaefer said. “Whatever is the biggest challenge out there, we’ll take it on. I believe in our cards. I believe in our fights. … We don’t let another promoter or TV network jerk us around. This is Canelo mania, and it’s only going to get bigger.”
