Now what to do for Canelo & Golovkin?


Via Ken Hissner: With the third meeting between WBA, WBC, WBO and IBF super middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, 58-2-2 (39), of Mexico and IBF and WBA super middleweight champion Gennadiy “GGG” ” Golovkin, 42-2-1 (37), of Kazakhstan, finally ended four years after it should have been “Now for Canelo and GGG?”

Alvarez said with a wrist injury since his game against Caleb “Sweethands” Plant in November 2021; he needs surgery and time off until May or September 2023.

The WBC Super Middleweight champion and No. 1 contender is Pavel Silyagin, 11-0 (5), of Russia, who has never competed professionally abroad. Former IBF Plant champion, 21-1 (12), is No. 2. David Benavidez, 26-0 (23), and any Mexican Canelo declares he will not fight.

While Golovkin is listed as the WBA World Super Super champion, Cuban Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara, 28-3-3 (16), of Houston, Texas, is listed as the WBA World champion. A duel between the two is a possibility

WBC middleweight champion Jermall “Hit Man” Charlo, 32-0 (22 years old), said he is vacating and moving up to super middleweight. The WBC silver middleweight champion is Hamzah Sheeraz, 16-0 (12), of Great Britain. The WBC’s top middleweight contender is Carlos Adames, 21-1 (16), of the Dominican Republic. In second place is former WBO middleweight champion Jaime Munguia, 40-0 (32), from Mexico. Adames and Munguia will likely vie for the title if and when Charlo vacates.

IBF Latino Super Middleweight Champion, Cuban, William “El Indomable” Scull, 19-0 (9), Argentinian, who fought Germany as IBF No. 1 contender.

The international WBO super-middleweight champion is Zach Parker, 22-0 (16), from Great Britain. He and former WBO middleweight champion Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade, 31-0 (22), of Providence, RI, are scheduled for the currently vacant WBO Super Middleweight title.

The WBA’s #1 super-middleweight contender is Aidos Yerbossynuly, 15-0 (10), Kazakh.

The WBA No. 1 middleweight contender is Michael Zerafa, 27-4 (16), Australian.

The IBF 1st middleweight is Esquiva Falcao, 30-0 (20), Brazilian.

The WBO interim middleweight champion is 2016 Olympian Zhanibek Alimkhanuly, 12-0 (8), Kazakh.

Golovkin already has WBA and IBF titles, so his WBA title defense could be against Zerafa, and IBF title defense could be against Falcao.
