The WBC's next move will be to announce they have reduced the number of Board of Governors to 36.And then when Canelo wins he'll be elevated to Franchise champion so that he won't have to fight Benavidez at any point, 36-1, I'm surprised someone had the balls to vote against the motion, credit to him.
Good for DAZN.DAZN have thrown a spanner in the works. Say they won’t approve Canelo-Yildirim.
DAZN’s decision-makers weren’t interested in paying even a discounted rights fee to stream a Canelo Alvarez-Anthony Dirrell fight. They have no intention of footing the bill for Alvarez to fight someone Dirrell defeated, either. BoxingScene.com has learned DAZN won’t approve an Alvarez-Avni...www.boxingscene.com
Of course, easy payday against someone that is horrifically overchallenged in terms of everything. Not a single thing Yilidirim does would trouble Canelo. It'd be a massacre like Canelo/Angulo.Avni Yildirim could be Canelo Alvarez's next opponent. And according to the WBC, the lesser-known opponent is who Alvarez wants.theathletic.com
Apparently Canelo requested Yildirim.
