Alvarez vs. Hatton in the Works

Matthew Hatton, that is...
Contract talks are underway for a March showdown between Golden Boy Promotions' up-and-coming sensation Saul Alvarez (35-0-1, 26 KO) and Ricky's kid brother - Matthew Hatton (41-4-2, 16 KO), in California.
If negotiations are successful, Matthew will travel to the Honda Center in Anaheim to fight the unbeaten Mexican, who boasts an impressive professional slate for a 20 year-old contender. Alvarez' last outing was a dominant unanimous decision over Lovemore N'Dou, who incidentally fought a controversial draw with Hatton in 2009.
The fight is likely to be made at a catchweight of 150 lbs.
