Canelo Alvarez is Looking To Defend Both World Titles

By Rene Umanzor

Eddy Reynoso, trainer and manager of Saúl "Canelo" Álvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs), states that his fighter is not taking sides and wants to defend both of his junior middleweight world titles. The World Boxing Council, which doesn't approve of their champions holding multiple titles, would rather have Canelo dump his recently won WBA title. Canelo captured the WBA title in April with a decision win over Austin Trout in unification.

On May 28th, Canelo and his team will go to Panama to officially receive the WBA title.

“On Tuesday we have a meeting with the WBA and they are going to present the championship belt to him. I believe that there won't be a problem [with the WBC]. We want to defend both championships because for him to say not to the belt, it would be a disrespect to the sanctioning body. We have not discussed this topic with the WBC, but all of the organizations deserve respect because boxing is a business, we [have a promotional company] and we have to work with all of the organiztaions, in addition to which we pay the respective sanctioning fees," Reynoso said.

Golden Boy Promotions is currently trying to match Canelo against Floyd Mayweather Jr. on September 14th. The negotiations are still ongoing.

WBC is so wacked it's ridiculous. If I were a boxer's manager, I wouldn't pay sanctioning fees to an organization like that. What a joke.
