Mauricio Sulaiman clear on GGG v Canelo / Khan weight issue

WBC 24/02/2016

World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman is stressing middle is middle, in the continuing slow build up to the battle between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin.

There’s already been some verbal sparring between the two camps about division weight or catchweight.

President Mauricio Sulaiman frankly gave his view by stating: “People do not understand that this division is one hundred and sixty pounds. If they reach an agreement for another weight, that’s their problem.

“There are so many concerns with something that has nothing to do with the organization. 

“The division is one hundred and sixty. If a fighter shows up weighing one hundred and fifty four or one hundred and fifty nine, that is within the middleweight category. Anything under one sixty. That’s it!”
