James Kirkland suffered a shoulder injury during his fight against Carlos Molina recently that has caused him to pull out of the Alvarez fight a day after signing the papers. The potential upper level opponents for Alvarez are diminishing as a fight with Cotto was never a scenario. The winner of Austin Trout vs Delvin Rodriguez will be presented with the opportunity to make the fight with Alvarez, as well as Erislandy Lara and Carlos Quintana. What a disappointment. I’d be mildly interested in a fight with Lara or Rodriguez.
