Canelo is Being Pressured To Pick One Title Belt

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

The World Boxing Council, which last year adapted the policy of not allowing their champions to hold titles from a rival sanctioning body, appears to be placing some pressure on WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) to give up one of his titles.

Edison Reynoso, Director of Canelo Promotions and part of the boxer's management, denied the circulating rumors that Canelo vacated his WBC title. The rumors began when the WBA announced that Canelo would be traveling to Panama to pick up his championship. The boxer, Edison and Chepo Reynoso will travel to Panama on Tuesday to officially receive the title which Canelo captured from Austin Trout in April.

"Canelo has not waived [his title]. Why would we do that? The World Boxing Council has supported Saul since he won the junior middleweight championship, the silver and other regional titles of this organization. Saul's entire career has been connected to the WBC title. What happens next [regarding the titles], we will determine after evaluating the situation. [The WBC] has always supported the Mexicans boxers, regardless of whether it is Canelo or someone else. Equally, the WBA supports Venezuelans and the WBO supports Puerto Ricans. Naturally each agency provides support to fighters within their own country, and only those that are very good become champions," Reynoso said.
