Canelo Alvarez facing charges from alleged assault against fellow boxer Ulises Solis in Mexico

Al Bello

How will this affect the undefeated pugilist in his fight against Austin Trout on Saturday night?

Straight from the files of "Holy shit, that's bad timing," comes word that WBC 154-pound champion Canelo Alvarez is facing charges in Mexico for allegedly assaulting fellow boxer and former junior flyweight titleholder Ulises Solis back in 2011.

From BoxingScene.com (via Bad Left Hook):

Authorities in Jalisco have requested that an arrest warrant be issued against Canelo and his brother Juan Ramón Alvarez. Solis suffered a broken jaw and lost several teeth from the beating. He required several surgeries and was stripped of his IBF due to inactivity. Canelo has denied the allegations and said his brother was the actual person involved in the incident.

Probably not the kind of news he wanted to hear just a few days before one of the biggest fights of his career.

Alvarez (41-0-1) is booked to square off against Austin Trout (26-0) this Saturday night (April 20, 2013) at the Alamadome in San Antonio, Texas. As with every major boxing card, we'll be bringing you the live results and play-by-play as it goes down.

And the live results and play-by-play of his run-in with the law, should one occur.
