Former WBC middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (47-1-1, 33 KOs) has been dropped completely by the World Boxing Council’s ratings. The WBC came out with their new ratings for June, and the 25-year-old Canelo is nowhere to be seen among the top 15 contenders ranked by the sanctioning body. This includes both Middleweight division and Light Middleweight .
It will be interesting to see where exactly does he go. He has been extremely loyal to the WBC so I would expect him to challenge for the WBO strap at Light Middleweight and face Liam Smith. The fight has been talked about for several months and would be logical for both parties to get the fight made.
