Regarding the complications that could exist to carry out a rematch between Saúl Canelo Álvarez and Dmitry Bivol, the boxing promoterEddie Hearn, assured that the WBC would not be a problem to sign the fight so desired by the Mexican, this after the declarations of Mauricio SulaimanPresident of the World Boxing Councilwho assured that the Russian fighter cannot participate in a WBC fight due to the conflicts between Russia and Ukraine.

“I have a lot of respect for Mauricio Sulaiman. I don’t always agree with everything that everyone does, of course. I don’t like him and maybe it’s because I know Dmitry and admire him and am friends with him.

I understand that at the same time and there are a lot of sports that have done that. Canelo still wants that rematch at 175lbs, which is for Dmitry’s WBA title, so it doesn’t really matter.”revealed Eddie Hearn in a chat with Boxing Social.
