WBC: Canelo-Golovkin Deadline Extended To Dec. 11

The World Boxing Council has been in continuous communications with the representatives and promoters of WBC World Middleweight Champion Saul Alvarez and WBC Interim Middleweight Champion Gennady Golovkin with regards to the ruling concerning this division.

Due to the holiday week of Thanksgiving celebrated in the USA, and considering the goodwill of both parties to finalize an agreement, the WBC has extended until Friday, December 11, the time to have a final resolution of this matter in accordance to the WBC Rules and Regulations.


The WBC has accepted the request of both parties to extend the free negotiation period one more week for the WBC Featherweight Interim Championship between Robinson Castellanos and Oscar Escandon. If no agreement is reached, a purse offer will be conducted on Friday, December 11, at the WBC office in Mexico City.
