The title of middleweight champion has given to the Canelo Alvarez from Miguel Cotto last year. The title given to them because of his an impressive win which he get in fourth consecutive win after he lost against Floyd Mayweather back in 2013. He will be odds on favorite to beat Amir Khan.
From last 3 years Amir Khan has not fought regularly enough to suggest he can get a win over Canelo Alvarez. Amir Khan naturally is much lighter player as compared to Canelo Alvarez. Canelo Alvarez has been fighting at the middleweight for a long time. Amir Khan has enormous advantage of speed and he will be keen to follow steps of Mayweather. Mayweather is one who defeated Canelo on pure boxing ability. But Amir Khan is not a Mayweather and no doubt Canelo has improved a lot since his defeat. So its not a casual fans dream fight but its more of a mis-match.
