In the September battle, Golovkin may lose all four belts (WBO, WBA, IBF and IBA).Canelo, however, has already announced that it will only fight for the WBA and IBF belts.
In plain language this means that in the event of a victory, Canelo would only become WBA and IBF champion.The WBO and IBA belts would then be vacant.
Canelo is still angry with the WBO because he had to give up his championship belt in 2016.I guess that’s why he doesn’t want anything to do with the bandage.
He himself said at a PR event:”I’m very proud to fight for these two important belts” He didn’t mention WBO at all.
