IBF and Ring Magazine cruiserweight champion Mairis Briedis has offered the newly crowned undisputed super-middleweight champion Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez a shot at his world title.

Following his victory against Caleb Plant in Las Vegas on Saturday night, speculation is already rife about who the Mexican could face next.

While some are hoping for a venture into the light heavyweight division, a division where he has won a world title, others are thinking Canelo could make a step up to cruiserweight.

Cue Mairis Briedis who in a post on Instagram offered Canelo a fight at 200lbs claiming that there are a lack of challenges at both super-middleweight and light heavyweight.

 Briedis is just one of many names in the running for fight against Canelo who is set to return to the ring next May.
