Sulaiman on Mayweather-Guerrero, Mayweather-Canelo

By Miguel Rivera

World Boxing Council (WBC) President Jose Sulaiman is standing behind the match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero. Mayweather returns on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather recently named IBF champion Devon Alexander as the frontrunner to face him.

Sulaiman wants Mayweather, the WBC's champion at 147, to fight Guerrero, the WBC's interim-champion at 147, in order to establish the true WBC beltholder at welterweight.

If Mayweather wins, the WBC will support a match with WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Cenlo" Alvarez.

"We want Mayweather to fight against Guerrero so there is a single [WBC] champion in the welterweight division. After that we will definitely support entirely a fight between Mayweather and Canelo. We want Mayweather to first unify the [WBC] titles because Guererro won an eliminator and became that interim-champion. But, interim-titles do not exist under the WBC. It was created because Mayweather went to jail and we didn't want to remove the title from him - but at the same time we didn't want to freeze the title," Sulaiman said.

Regarding Canelo, Sulaiman says the boxer should meet Mayweather at a catch-weight, but under no circumstances should he agree to go down to 147.

"I do not think Canelo should go down to 147 pounds. They should agree to fight maybe at 150. Canelo can go down by four pounds and Mayweather can come up by three," Sulaiman said.

[QUOTE=budfr;13028684]Floyd is a coward. He is afraid of Martinez, who is better than him. He is also afraid of Canelo, just like he was from Margarito. He only wins by points or by suckerpunching. Hugs too much. Boring. He engaged…
