Supposedly, negotiations are in the works for an Alvarez Vs. Golovkin fight for the fall of 2016, but a secret 10-year plan by De La Hoya has been discovered that reveals the future of WBC middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, and the direction Goldenboy wants to lead his career. Earlier in the year, Oscar laid out a plan in which he wanted to make it clear that, for the next 10 years, Cinco de Mayo belonged to the talented Mexican boxer. Now that the WBC has ordered the fight to happen and the Alvarez camp has 2 weeks to cut a deal or vacate, these plans might not come to light as De La Hoya had planned!

According to the blueprints, which are very detailed, the Cinco de Mayo's, from 2017-2026, give prospective opponents that Oscar would like to see his 'goldenboy' fight. 

The list, which consists of flyweights, up to welterweights, to finally, GGG, who is a middleweight is a chance for Canelo to develop into a true  middleweight:

  • 2017: Donnie Nietes
  • 2018: Roman Gonzalez
  • 2019: Diego De La Hoya
  • 2020: Juan Francisco Estrada
  • 2021: Leo Santa Cruz
  • 2022: Nonito Donaire
  • 2023: Lucas Martin Matthysse
  • 2024: Terence Crawford
  • 2025: Keith Thurman
  • 2026: Gennady Golovkin
  •  There might be a possibility of Rigondeaux replacing Matthysse if he is unable to fight. 

Whether the blueprints will be of any use all depends upon the on-going negotiations between the Alvarez and Golovkin camps, but judging from the tension and fear in De La Hoya's face when asked about the imminent fight, his future plans for Canelo might go up in smoke. If GGG refuses to accept a catch-weight of 155lb or a low-ball purse, then Oscar will be sure to celebrate, and his fighter will remain protected.
