WBC President: “Yildirim is much better than people think!”


The President of the World Boxing Council (WBC) Mauricio Suleiman strongly disagrees with the opinion of the boxing community, which considered the upcoming performance of the champion in the second middle weight (up to 76.2 kg), Mexican Saul Alvarez (54-1-2, 36 KO), a mismatch.

As a reminder, it is expected that at the end of February at home the leader of the “pound-for-pound” rating will hold a mandatory defense against the Turk Avni Yildirim (21-2-0, 12 KO).

“I think Yildirim is much better than people think,” Suleiman said. “Canelo intends to defend early this year and we will contact him shortly.”
