Canelo Alvarez, who just defeated Callum Smith on December 19, doesn’t seem to be wasting a lot of time, as he is. WBC’s essential challenger Avnyurdilim is reportedly planning a return on February 27 in Guadalajara, Mexico...
Canero (54-1-2, 36 KO) dominated Smith with little punishment last weekend.It came after he sat for 13 months due to both the COVID-19 pandemic with Golden Boy Promotions and contractual issues. DAZNAnyway, his fight with Smith ended streaming on DAZN. He is out of contract with both GBP and the broadcaster, so in theory he can play against Yildirim on any platform, including the possibility of having a self-promotional pay-per-view event.
This also goes against the belief that he may face IBF title holders next. Caleb Plant to play Caleb Truax at FOX on January 30thOr wait until Cinco de Mayo’s weekend Potential third battle with Gennady Golovkin..
29-year-old Yildirim (21-2, 12 KO), frankly, isn’t much of a “big fight” or paper challenge for Canero, but Turkish fighters are a must for the WBC belt, and Canero I’m not looking for a move-out. And if he passed through Ildirim without any problems-that’s to be expected-he could easily fight again with the plant, Golovkin or anyone else in May or June.
It’s not official, but it’s also a fight that will work to return to Mexico, where Canero hasn’t fought since winning Kermit Cintrón in Mexico City in 2011.And he is not fighting House I have lived in Guadalajara since defeating Luciano Cuero in 2010. Ildilim is the type of opponent who goes to Canero’s backyard as needed to play against the biggest name in the sports world.
