Charlo vs. Heiland WBC Eliminator in Play For Garcia-Broner Card

By Elisinio Castillo

According to sources in Argentina, there are discussions taking place to stage Jorge Sebastian Heiland (28-4-2, 15 KOs) vs. former IBF junior middleweight champion Jermall Charlo (25-0, 19 KOs) in a final WBC middleweight eliminator. was advised that the fight is reportedly being targeted for July 29th, as part of the Mikey Garcia vs. Adrien Broner undercard.

The winner of the contest would become the mandatory challenger to the winner of Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarz, who battle for the WBC, WBA, IBF, IBO titles on September 16th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Earlier this year, Charlo vacated the IBF title and announced his official move to the middleweight division. He last fought in the fall, when he knocked out undefeated mandatory challenger Julian Williams.

Upon moving up, Charlo was given a high ranking under the WBC by landing in number two position within their top ten. The WBC's number one ranked contender is Heiland of Argentina.

Heiland has been sitting in the top contender position for a very long time. He's been in position for a title shot since 2015. There were talks to face then champion Miguel Cotto, but he was passed over for Daniel Geale and then in a controversial move the WBC made Golovkin the mandatory challenger.

Cotto would eventually drop the belt after a financial dispute with the WBC. And the vacant belt was captured by Canelo in November of that year with a decision win over Cotto. And then Canelo vacated the title the following May. The title was then handed over to Golovkin by default.

If Canelo defeats Golovkin, the WBC title may become vacant. Currently, there is a lot of animosity between Canelo and the WBC, and last month the Mexican star stated that he doesn't want to fight for the WBC title in the Golovkin bout.
