Faced with this situation, the managers of both sides are already beginning to analyze who they could face next, with the Russians Dmitry Bivol Y Artur Beterbiev in the sights of the Mexican.
Although both sides wanted to unify the 168-pound division with the belts WBA, WBO, WBC Y FIB, there were details that were not fixed.
Eddie hearn, President of Mathroom and promoter of Canelo, mentioned during the week that Al haymon of PBC, promoter of PlantHe wanted to attract the Guadalajara to a long-term contract and that was hampering the negotiations.
The date they initially budgeted for the contest to take place, in The Vegas, Nevada, it was September 18, but Hearn revealed that that day he was walking away, something that was ultimately squandered.
Outlook for Canelo
Who appears as the rival who has the advantage of the race to fight against Canelo is Bivol, monarch of 175 pounds by the AMB. He and his manager already expressed their desire to face the Mexican and even offered to drop to 168 pounds.
After what Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramírez won in their last match, he sent a challenge to Dmitry, but fight before Saul it is the most attractive contest.
Another is Beterbiev, light heavyweight monarch by the CMB and the FIB, although according to savior this possibility seems more distant.
For its part, Plant, who last fought in January this year, wants to Jermall charlo, middle monarch by the CMB, who would go up to 168 pounds.
