Canelo-Angulo Could Be For Belt, if Mayweather Vacates

By Miguel Rivera

The junior middleweight match between former world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Alfredo Angulo could possibly have the vacant WBC world title at stake, according to the sanctioning body. The fight has been finalized for March 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Whether or not the title will be at stake is fully dependent on the current champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., who captured the belt with a twelve round majority decision over Canelo on September 14th.

Mayweather has the WBC's title at 154, but he also has the WBC title at 147. The World Boxing Council has asked Floyd to make a decision as to which belt he plans to keep. To date, Mayweather has not announced which title he plans to drop. Mayweather returns on May 3rd.

Mauricio Sulaiman of the WBC stated: “Floyd has requested an audience with my Dad,  but that hasn’t been possible. His situation will be resolved soon. The WBC is open for Canelo. He has our friendship, and we have a good relationship with his manager Eddy Reynoso. Canelo Promotions has also promoted several fights with WBC championships.”

Regarding the Canelo-Angulo clash, Sulaiman said - “Angulo is a very dangerous fighter who has a great punch. This will be a great fight between Mexican boxers. Angulo is a KO artist and Canelo has to continue facing the best of the division."
