Canelo vacates WBA regular title; Lemieux vs Ryder possibly upgraded for vacant belt
In an anticipated move, Canelo Alvarez vacated the WBA regular super middleweight title. The move makes sense because as the unified middleweight champion, it would be difficult for him to fulfill his obligations for this title.
Alvarez already has a middleweight unification bout set against IBF champion Daniel Jacobs on May 4. This will be an opportunity for him to collect three of four pieces to the undisputed crown. The fourth and final piece (the WBO) belongs to Demetrius Andrade.
Previously, 3kingsboxing.com reported middleweight knockout artist David Lemieux may possibly face British fighter John Ryder which was initially to determine a mandatory for the aforementioned title. However, with Canelo vacating, their bout will likely be for the vacant belt.
