WBC ORDERS CANELO VS YILDIRIM FOR VACANT 168 CROWN

The WBC has just ordered Mexican ⭐️ Boxing Superstar Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez (53-1-2, 36 KO’s) to fight 168-pound fighter “Mr. Robot” Avni Yildirim (21-2, 12 KO’s) of Turkey for the vacant WBC Super Middleweight Crown.💥

Fight fans were hoping to see the highly popular 30-year-old Canelo again against his Kazakhstan nemesis “GGG” Gennadiy Golovkin (40-1-1, 35 KO’s) or against unbeaten Briton Billy Joe Saunders (29-0, 14 KO’s). But it seems that fans might have to wait. 😔

It is not yet known what English over-the-top subscription sports streaming service DAZN would think about the new WBC order. Wondering.

Because it is DAZN the one that puts millions of dollars on the table to broadcast Canelo fights. 🧐 So would DAZN like the match? 🧐

In his last thrilling blockbuster fight, Canelo knocked out in spectacular fashion Russian light heavyweight “The Krusher” Sergey Kovalev (34-4-1, 29 KO’s) in 11 rounds last November; while “Mr. Robot” Yildirim lost a 10-round technical decision to veteran 🇺🇸 Anthony Dirrell (33-2-1, 24 KO’s) in February of last year. 😬

✅ Those contrasting results prompt many boxing fans to think that Canelo might have way too much class for the lesser known 29-year-old Turkish boxer. 😬

— However, as old folks say about boxing: “In battle there are no small enemies.”✋

If the Canelo vs Yildirim fight ever happens, May the Best Man Win.!! 🔥🔥
