Jermall Charlo? Dmitry Bivol? David Benavidez? Canelo Alvarez has options after GGG win

LAS VEGAS -- Canelo Alvarez emerged from his rivalry with Gennadiy Golovkin all smiles, the bad blood that brewed over the past five years finally put to rest. A clear victory over GGG to retain his 168-pound undisputed championship on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena appeared to bring Alvarez solace, if not the pain of an injured left hand he told ESPN is "f---ed up from the Caleb Plant fight."
