(Saul Alvarez, left; Kermit Cintron, right)Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is either the future of the boxing or a spoiled child, depending on who you ask. It's unlikely that the argument is going to be solved by his junior middleweight fight this weekend with Kermit Cintron in Mexico City. Not unless Cintron pulls the upset and defeats Canelo, which is an unlikely prospect. On the other bout of the HBO televised double header, fellow hopeful Adrien Broner fights in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. His opponent, Argentina's Vicente Rodriguez, is a level below even Cintron. So this is meant to be a showcase night on HBO, hopefully before both men move on to bigger and better things. Alvarez (38-0-1) is only 21. In his native Mexico, he's already a superstar. He's getting that way with Mexican-American fans too. The problem is that he hasn't really beaten anybody of note -- unless you count allegedly beating up the Ring's number three man... at junior flyweight.....
