After Bivol and Benavides negociations went bad , Matchroom promotor Eddie Hearn after consulting it with the Canelo team he called Badou Jack's promotor Prince Khalid for possible clash between The Ripper and Canelo for the cruiserweight WBC championship in september. Canelo was already planning the move up to cruiserweight to fight Makabu before he lost to Bivol in lightheavyweight. Jack is a small cruiserweight that was a middleweight so there isnt going to be a big size difference between the two. Both teams seem interested in the fight , the fight would most likely take place in Saudí Arabia. Canelo wants to make history getting another title in a different division, but it wont be an easy task against the 3x champ Badou Jack, he isnt a walk in the park and he has power also , so Canelo can also get hurt in this fight. If it becomes official it will also be a good fight.
