Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez has been ordered by the WBC to contest their super-middleweight title against Avni Yildirim, a former opponent of Chris Eubank Jr’s
Canelo’s long search for an opponent saw him postpone a targeted date of September 12 but it could now conclude with Yildirim, if terms are finalised.
Canelo holds the WBC ‘franchise’ title at middleweight, while Yildirim is the mandatory challenger to the super-middleweight title which became vacant last weekend.
David Benavidez was stripped of the belt after failing to make weight before extending his unbeaten career to 23 fights.
That gives Canelo an opportunity to solidify his status as a four-weight world champion.
He has won belts at super-welterweight, middleweight, super-middle and light-heavyweight.
He stopped Rocky Fielding to win the WBA ‘regular’ super-middleweight title but, if he claims the vacant WBC belt, would tighten his grip over the division.
Canelo had previously considered super-middleweight world champions Billy Joe Saunders (WBO) and Callum Smith (WBA) as his next opponent. Ireland’s Jason Quigley was also an option.
But crucially Benavidez’s failure to make weight for his fight last weekend has opened the door for Canelo to claim WBC gold.
Turkey’s Yildirim is the No 1 ranked contender by the governing body so is owed a mandatory opportunity.
He has won 21 of his 23 fights – his unbeaten run was ended by knockout by Eubank Jr in 2017.
Yildirim lost his most recent fight to Andre Dirrell, which was also for the vacant WBC super-middleweight title. Dirrell, in turn, lost the belt to Benavidez.
