The WBC has formally requested the Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin middleweight battle. As indicated by an understanding made months prior, if Canelo, the World middleweight champion, declines to battle GGG, the bound together middleweight champion, he will be stripped of his title. This goes ahead the foot rear areas of Canelo's fierce sixth round knockout of Amir Khan and GGG's absolute annihilation of Dominic Wade in April. The two battles being interval before they would arrange a battle at the end of the day.
"The two boxers and their groups were advised through (a formal) letter that the 30-day free transactions period was because of start on Monday, May 9. They will have 15 days to achieve an understanding, in which case a satchel offer hearing will be hung on May 24."
The two gatherings are in converses with each other to make this battle happen, yet as we've found previously, boxing has a method for not working out the battles that issue when they matter most. It took a half-decade and Manny Pacquiao getting thumped out by Juan Manuel Marquez before Floyd Mayweather consented to battle him when Manny was well past his prime. Comparative allegations have been tossed at Golden Boy Promotions and Canelo for not protecting his middleweight title against the undefeated Golovkin, who has 32 knockouts in his 35 wins.
Canelo, who is eight years GGG's lesser, has time on his side. Regardless of the possibility that he chooses to be stripped, the intense puncher has a large number of potential cash battles in front of him. While he's off battling any semblance of Timothy Bradley or even Manny Pacquiao (nobody truly trusts he's resigned), GGG will be getting more seasoned and leaving his prime as Canelo enters his. This could sound skeptical, however this is regularly the way things work in the boxing scene.
So now we're here, with transactions in progress for the greatest boxing occasion since Pacquiao/Mayweather. At 47-1-1, Canelo has the name and the record to request whatever he needs at the present time, including a battle against somebody other than GGG, with the capability of recapturing his middleweight title later on.
