Eddie hearn, President of Matchroom and promoter of Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez, announced that the Mexican will carry out his next fight in November of this year.
“Talk to Canelo, with Eddy reynoso and the team today ”, wrote the British promoter in his account of Twitter. “Saul he’s focused on getting back in the ring in November. More news soon ”.
The boxer from Guadalajara entered into negotiations with Caleb Plant after he knocked out Billy joe saunders, but the detail that the Mexican wanted $ 40 million guaranteed, even if Plant He couldn’t fight, he prevented them from reaching an agreement.
That is why they began to analyze the next rivals of Saul, who wanted to become the undisputed super middleweight champion or challenge one of the light heavyweight champions.
One of the rivals who rang for Alvarez it was russian Dmitry Bivol, monarch of 175 pounds by the AMB
But time ran out and neither of them was going to have a suitable training camp.
Hearn said in previous days that the possible combat between Canelo Y Bivol It would be at an agreed weight between 168 and 175 pounds, although this pause could give them time to fix all those details.
Saul He comes from fighting twice during 2021: first he made the mandatory contest for the CMB in view of Avni Yildirim and then unified before Billy joe saunders the 168 pound scepters.
Nowadays Canelo count on the champions WBA, WBO Y CMB super middleweight, so the only thing missing to be undisputed is that of the FIB what’s wrong with it Plant, but that due to the complications in the negotiations they will not be able to unify.
For its part, Dmitry Bivol made his last defense in May 2021 against Craig Richards, to who beat him by unanimous decision by cards of 115-114, 115-113 and 118-110.
