Sulaiman: Canelo Must Face Vanes-Lara Winner in 2013

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com spoke to WBC President Jose Sulaiman about the immediate future of their 154 pound champion, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. The red headed Mexican superstar successfully defended his title on September 15th against Josesito Lopez.

Alvarez has been criticized by some media members for not facing the top challengers in his division.  On November 10th, Vanes Martirosyan and Erislandy Lara will take part in a final eliminator for the right to face Alvarez.  I asked Sulaiman if he will order Canelo to fight the winner of that fight.

"The elimination between Martirosyan and Lara will be the mandatory challenger and we will not allow Alvarez to take any other fight except that fight.  If he fights just before or right after their fight then we will allow him to take one other fight but if its not (in that time frame) then we won't allow it," Sulaiman told BoxingScene.com. 

"Since Lara and Martirosyan are fighting in November we will allow Alvarez one more fight before he faces the winner of that fight because they will have just fought," he continued.

The WBC is holding an auction at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to help fund their newly formed pension fund for retired boxers.  They will be hosting a charity dinner and auctioning off Hublot watches engraved with signatures of 12 of the top living boxers that have held a WBC title.

[QUOTE=garfios;12565577]No he didn't ko him but man, he tortured him from beginning to end, it should had been better if he got KO in the first round[/QUOTE] [IMG]http://bloximages.newyork1.vip.townnews.com/wavenewspapers.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/4/66/4660a1e8-c486-11e1-be02-001a4bcf6878/4ff208037eab7.image.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6gm4mAl2s1r31pf8.jpg[/IMG]

[QUOTE=AvoidDisaster;12564177]Just like he knocked out Freddy Hernandez under five? I think I was the only who said he wouldn't KO Hernandez, people said it would be easy work because Berto knock him out in 1 round. Bro I'll bet you…
