Another contender for Canelo Alvarez will be determined on November 26


The vacant title of the “interim” WBO super middleweight champion (up to 76.2 kg) will be played in a duel between the British Zach Parker (22-0, 16 KOs) and John Ryder (30-5, 16 KOs) on November 26 in London (England). Today it was officially announced.

Recall that the full-fledged WBO title, as well as the belts of other prestigious organizations, in this category is owned by the Mexican Canelo Alvarez (58-2-2, 39 KOs). Accordingly, Parker and Ryder will determine his mandatory challenger.

It was originally planned that Parker’s opponent on November 5 would be the former world champion in the first middle and middle weights, American Demetrius Andred. However, after a modest bid of just $305,000 won at the promotional auction, Andrade pulled out of the fight.

It is worth noting that Alvarez already has mandatory challengers from the WBC (David Benavidez and Caleb Plant), WBA (David Morrel) and IBF (William Skull).

However, Canelo plans to fight next in the light heavyweight category against his offender from the Russian Federation Dmitry Bivol. True, only if Bivol wins on November 5 over Gilberto Ramirez.

It turned out just now that Bivol prefers the fight with Beterbiev, and his manager is afraid of a rematch with Canelo.
