The ‘Crusher’ is fully on board with the combat, ought to Canelo make an offer, once his mandatory responsibilities with Anthony Yarde are whole.
Golden Boy has been urged with the aid of Kathy Duva, speak me HERE to WBN, to install a solid bid for Canelo to goal for a fourth-weight world crown.
At the instant, Canelo is in ownership of a seize of middleweight belts, and a lowly-appeared model at 168 kilos.
Never-the-much less, because of confusion garnered using one of the lesser organizations, Canelo remains considered a three-department king.
Facing Kovalev offers Canelo the risk to sign up for Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez, Jorge Arce and Erik Morales in preserving straps at 4 separate lessons.
As Duva defined, Kovalev is still in talks to finish a WBO stipulation in opposition to Anthony Yarde. Negotiations were complex and painstaking.
Kovalev is aiming to get Yarde out of the manner via August earlier than plowing on with a Canelo combat by November or December.
Another choice could be for Yarde to step aside and allow Kovalev to stand Canelo in September, although WBN is aware that it is not going.
It’s extra possible that Kovalev will warfare Yarde within the subsequent couple of months earlier than aiming for Canelo later inside the yr.
This could also suggest Canelo places off a September go back on Mexican Independence weekend in choose of awaiting the Russian.
Since WBN first discovered the opportunity of Canelo v Kovalev, social media has been awash with a buzz.“Canelo getting in with Kovalev subsequent?!? He could be fighting Wilder in 2020 at this charge.”
“Canelo fighting Kovalev is cherry picking. Sure Kovalev regarded super his last time out towards Alvarez however that was a man who becomes a punching bag. Kovalev is way too old, large time cherry choosing. He must be combating Bivol! The one who known as him out at a hundred seventy-five OR 168!
“What is Kovalev a hundred seventy-five, I don’t think he could stand a hazard, appears at that weight the chance of having hurt is lots higher, manifestly Kovalev has been KO however Canelo hasn’t knocked out any respectable guy at a hundred and sixty let alone 175.”
“Word is Canelo would possibly combat Kovalev next, that simply might be suicide.”
“I wouldn’t mind seeing if Canelo may want to cope with the size and natural electricity of Kovalev. For as soon as he will be the smaller man.”
“I will without a doubt deliver Canelo props if he’s taking that Kovalev combat. That’s insane!!!”
“168 is too huge for Canelo I sense. If the Smith/Kovalev fight receives made I could place cash on them. But if Canelo received. Oh boy, massive for his legacy!”
“Canelo would be an awful lot smaller vs Kovalev. It would be an excellent suit up because Kovalev has huge strength however Canelo is a fantastic body puncher. Kovalev struggled when Ward went to his frame.”
