WBC rejects Canelo vs. Trout fight

By Gabriel F. Cordero

WBA super welterweight world champion Austin Trout will not be accepted by the WBC as an opponent for WBC super welterweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez for September 15 in Las Vegas. Trout had been mentioned as one of the possible candidates to replace Victor Ortiz. The WBC said Tuesday: “We do not accept unification, because if we agree we would be losing authority. We are not going to take away the exclusivity because we own the WBC brand.”

One interesting story line an Alvarez-Trout match would have is Trout won his title from Canelo’s brother. Another issue is that Trout has stated he’ll only do the fight if Canelo agrees to VADA testing. Other candidates named by the WBC are James Kirkland, Carlos Molina and Acelino Freitas.
