With Canelo Alvarez jumping ship to HBO, Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya is now talking about possible match-ups against Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

All three fights would break the box office. 

De La Hoya now says Canelo can go up a few pounds north of 159 lbs. Chavez Jr, still in a promotional imbroglio with Top Rank, insists he can fight below 168 lbs for the right opponent. 

"Canelo wants to face the best," De La Hoya said. "All three are great possibilities - Cotto, Pacquiao and Chavez Jr. But I think a fight with Julio Cesar is very probable right now at 160 or 162 pounds. I have heard that he's willing to get down there, [and if that's the case] then there is a way to make it."
