So Canelo Alvarez pulled a Riddick ‘Big Daddy’ Bowe by not fighting the mandatory challenger for his WBC middleweight title. The #1 contender for Alvarez’s WBC middleweight title was Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin.
Now Alvarez told the boxing world that we wanted to fight Gennady, yet he vacates his WBC middleweight title. I think this is a move by Golden Boy Promotions to let to potential fight between Canelo and GGG to brew some more before the 2 fighters finally sign on the dotted line in 2017.
Due to Canelo vacating his WBC middleweight title, Gennady Golovkin is now the WBC middleweight champion of the world so I think the next fight the boxing world will see will be a winner takes all middleweight unification title fight between Gennady Golovkin and Billy Joe Saunders.
The fight between Canelo and GGG will happen eventually, just not this year.
