Canelo Alvarez is favored by the WBC? The president denies it

Mauricio Sulaimán has always come out in defense of Canelo Álvarez, even when he lost to Bivol he came out to stop the criticism for the tapatío, but now his discourse has changed a little, and the president of the World Boxing Council (WBC) assured that within the organization there is no favoritism for the boxer.

In recent days much controversy has been generated by Canelo's refusal to fight David Benavidez, and Sulaimán immediately rejected that the WBC has favoritism for Canelo.

"Benavidez had the benefit of having the opportunity for an interim title, with the understanding that Canelo during this year was going to make several fights," he said at a conference at the WBC headquarters.

The WBC does not have a favorite, neither Canelo nor anyone else.

Mauricio Sulaimán clarified what kind of "favoritism" Canelo Álvarez has within the WBC, which is based on his preferential treatment for his great career in professional boxing, but ruled out that these are exclusive to Saúl, as he recalled what happened with all the great historical champions of the council.

"It is evident that Canelo has received preferential treatment for his great trajectory, just as Mayweather had it, just as (Julio César) Chávez had it, just as Muhammad Ali had it, without breaking the rules [...] Now let's see what's next in the division," he explained.
