By Michael Collins: WBC junior middleweight champion Saul Alvarez will be facing 40-year-old Shane Mosley on the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Miguel Cotto undercard on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Oscar De La Hoya, the president of Golden Boy Promotions, made the announcement moments ago on his twitter page the the Alvarez-Mosley fight is a done deal.

Mosley hasn't won a fight in over three years and a lot of boxing fans see him as 100% shot. It's a good pick for Alvarez in terms of getting a name, but a terrible one in terms of a competitive fight. Alvarez has been adding old names to his resume for the past several years with wins over 40-year-old Lovemore N'dou, 40-year-old Carlos Baldomir, Kermit Cintron, Ryan Rhodes, Matthew Hatton and Alfonso Gomez. Golden Boy hasn't been in any hurry in putting Alvarez in with contenders James Kirkland, Vanes Martirosyan or Erislandy Lara.
Mosley would have to be considered a slight step down from Cintron, Alvarez's last opponent. Mosley's last win was way back in January 2009 when he beat Antonio Margarito.
