Canelo vs. Lara Could Be Ordered Directly To Fight

By Miguel Rivera

According to World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman, there is a possibility that he might order a mandatory fight between WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs) and top contender Erislandy Lara (17-1-2, 11KOs).

Lara fought Vanes Martirosyan in a final eliminator last November in Las Vegas. The fight ended in a nine round technical draw. The WBC ordered them to fight again, but Vanes passed on the fight.

Now the WBC is deciding if they plan to order Lara fight another top contender in a final eliminator or skip that option and instead order a fight between Canelo and Lara.

If Lara has to face another top contender, Sulaiman says the other challenger may not be Emanuele Della Rosa of Italy. Sulaiman has named EBU champion Sergey Rabchenko (22-0, 16KOs) as the other possible candidate to face Lara for a shot at Canelo.

"Vanes Martirosyan refused a rematch with Lara, which is why the WBC must now decide whether to vote for a mandatory fight between  Canelo and Lara as official challenger, or find the highest available ranked challenger to fulfill the elimination bout with Lara and then the winner would face Canelo," Sulaiman said.

[QUOTE=bojangles1987]You're talking like the fight is getting made when it likely won't. We'll continue to hate on Alvarez until his hypejob ass beats someone worth talking about. Lara would be that guy, hopefully it happens and Alvarez gets his chance to shut us up.[/QUOTE] Canelo's a great f...
