We ask a panel of experts what Canelo Alvarez's next move should be

Ken Egan
Olympic medallist

I think Canelo Alvarez should fight Gennady Golovkin to finish off the trilogy. Canelo needs to end that chapter on the GGG thing.

Micky Helliet
Boxing manager

I’d like to see either him go in with Billy Joe Saunders who would present a different challenge technically or a third fight with Gennady Golovkin.

Natasha Jonas
World title challenger

Canelo should fight Billy Joe Saunders (the WBO super-middleweight champion) or Caleb Plant (the IBF titlist). I think BJS deserves it, at his best his style is aggressive, he’s elusive, awkward, and deserves a shot.

Dave Coldwell
Leading trainer

I’d like to see the Billy Joe Saunders. That cleans up that division as such. That kind of style is something that historically seems a style Canelo struggles with the most. I want to see how he’s come along and how he copes with that southpaw, slick, moving sort of style.
