WBC President questions why Golovkin v Canelo II isn’t signed

At the weekly WBC Presser, he said: “There’s no way to understand why the fight is not signed. Everything is set for it to take place in September. I invite both camps to bury the hatchet and make the deal.

“I think Gennady Golovkin should understand that he has the power to make the fight happen and show in the ring, just who is the best. Everyone wants to see the rematch because their first fight was great. And the World deserves to see the second fight.”

Mauricio Sulaiman also informed ESPN Deportes this week that Jermall Charlo will be ordered as mandatory unless Golovkin fights Canelo. 

Sulaiman said: “Golovkin has all our support, but if the fight is not done he will have to go with Charlo because the entire history is clear as it is,” in his interview with the programme.

“We are recommending to him to do what is best for him because he wants to do the rematch and he wants to earn the money that he will generate there. He also wants that visibility that he has always wanted around the world.

“He has sacrificed so much for so many years to get to this point and now for something that is not so important (money) is putting him at risk. It would be strange to me if that fight is not done,” he added.

Charlo is currently without a fight following an April knockout win over Hugo Centeno and is known to be keen for the WBC to act on his mandatory chance.
