Saul Canelo Alvarez is the current king of world boxing, and therefore has us all used to fill us with expectations of who will be his next opponent. In this case, after beating Caleb Plant by KO11 in his last fight, we wonder what direction his career will take, considering that he could stay at 168 lbs or move up to 175 or 200.
Initially his team mentioned that they were interested in facing Congolese Ilunga Makabu, who is the current WBC cruiserweight champion, however, despite the fact that the parties were apparently mutually interested, Thabiso Mchunu’s name comes in and gets in the way, being that he is the WBC’s mandatory challenger to the respective championship, mentioning that he will not receive money to step aside.
For this reason, both Eddie Hearn on behalf of DAZN and Matchroom boxing, as well as the organizer Premier Boxing Champions (PBC), have made offers to define what will be the next fight for Canelo. Watch in our video what these offers are about and tell us which is the one you like the most or the one you consider the best for the Mexican: do you choose Dmitry Bivol, or Charlo and GGG?
